Tropic Bowl, same teams playing.
Tropic Bowl VII kicks off
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
U.S. college and professional football may
be in the off-season right now but that
does not mean expats don’t have the
opportunity to see a football game live.
The seventh annual Tropic Bowl will be
held this Saturday beginning at noon in
Ernesto Rohrmoser Stadium. The stadium is
located in the Pavas district of San José,
according to organizers. Athletes Without
Borders, American Football in CR, Costa
Rica Gurus and the Hotel & Casino
Taormina in Barrio Amón are sponsoring the
Event organizers said that the feature
game, Tropic Bowl VII, will have the
Northeast All-Stars, a U.S. team labeled
as semi-professional and consisting of 25
players from the United States, facing off
against the Costa Rica All-Stars team.
The roster for the Costa Ricans is
comprised of players from teams that
participated in the 2017 Asociación de
Equipos de Football Americano’s regular
season. The event is free of charge.
The Tropic Bowl will also play host to an
open training clinic followed by a youth
and the women’s full-contact exhibition
The clinic includes instructions on
tackling, drill, stances, ball handling,
conditioning and 40-yard relay race with
footballs, representatives from Athletes
Without Borders said. The event is
expected to finish around 8 p.m.
The group also said that the Tropic Bowl
is the longest-standing, internationally
friendly and annual American football
event in Costa Rica. Rohrmoser Stadium is
located only a few blocks from the U.S.
Embassy complex in Pavas.
More information can be found on the
event’s Facebook page HERE.
Theater cancels shows this

The Teatro Espressivo, after a Tuesday
statement announcing the opening of a
series of plays beginning this weekend,
now says that some of the shows are being
Theater representatives said that, for
reasons out of their control, the first
two shows that were supposed to be held
this weekend and the next are canceled.
These were the performances of “La Casa
Meanwhile, the Teatro Espressivo did say
that it intends to continue putting on
some performances beginning June 16 and
going into July. During that time period,
the theater will host artists and
independent groups from the Costa Rican
This is part of a series of performances
known as Espressivo Invita, organizers
The public is invited by the theater to
enjoy a great diversity of shows that are
expected to include contemporary theater,
cabaret and even a magic show by
professional troupes. It represents the
first edition of the festival, Espressivo
representatives said in a previous
“The program aims to offer the public more
quality theater options, and independent
groups have the possibility to present
their work in a room of excellent level,”
the organizers for the series said.
“The works are selected taking into
account quality as the main criteria.”
Tickets for these shows cost 8,000 colons
for general seating and 10,000 for VIP
placements. The shows will be performed
during the previously mentioned dates on
Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays
at 6 p.m.

Montes de Oca bans
the A.M. Costa Rica staff
Montes de Oca canton has become the second
canton to forbid the use of agro-chemicals
in public spaces such as playgrounds,
gardens, parks and cemeteries.
On May 22, the municipal council of Montes
de Oca unanimously approved the measure
that bans chemical products like
Glyphosate or Paraquat, according to a
press release sent by the Federación
Conservacionista de Costa Rica.
The agreement also states the launch of a
“hearts and minds” public relations
campaign that calls Montes de Oca
residents to avoid the domestic use of
synthetic herbicides in schools and public
institutions; it also encourages other
municipalities to adopt a similar
agreement, according to the statement.
“More municipal authorities study and
discuss the socio-economic and
environmental benefits that this simple
measure represents for its inhabitants,”
the document reads. “The proposal seeks to
detoxify the country”.
Last April, the municipality of Peréz
Zeledón became the first local government
to ban the agrochemicals.
The San Rafael de Heredia and Santa Ana
municipalities are also considering a
similar agreement, however, the
discussions are still going on in both
The herbicide-free cantons were pressured
by several environmental organizations
such as the Latin American Union of
Scientists Engaged with Society and
Nature, the Red de Coordinación en
Biodiversidad and Bloque Verde.
