Happy Ending for Three California Women
Apr 7th, 2015 by admin

This letter came to us from someone who directly benefited from the lifeguards!

To all who support the Playa Cocles Lifeguard Program,

Thank you so much!  Thanks to your generosity my friends and I are here today.  We visited in March 2015 and love Puerto Viejo and Playa Cocles.  We heard of the rip tides, but having swam in the water off our own coast of California and in other coasts (Caribbean and Hawaii) we didn’t truly understand the risk until it was too late.  Until we were struggling to keep our heads above the water and not getting any closer to the shore.  One second we were touching the sand (I could even dig my feet in) and the next second the ground was nowhere below us and we couldn’t catch a wave back into shore like we would usually do.  Then struggling to keep our heads above water and trying to find some way to reach someone on shore for help… suddenly Abraham was there telling us to grab on to the floatation device and to calm down.  He managed to get three of us back to shore safely and we aren’t small women.  We later found out that Playa Cocles is the only beach that has lifeguards thanks to donations from local businesses and donors.  Thank you so much and know that this service is greatly needed and should continue.

Thanks,
Mandy

And thank you for the donation as well.  That will help keep the program going in the future!
