Let’s go bowling in Cariari
When I was 12 years old, our neighborhood gang used to play baseball in a large commercial property under construction near my home. The owner of the building under construction invited us to keep visiting after the building would be done.
That was when I was first introduced to 10 pin bowling (boliche in Spanish), the first one in Holland (Europe). When I moved to Costa Rica, I was soon invited to play the American League in the Boliche Dent in San Pedro, the only bowling alley in Costa Rica back then.
That was before the first and only terrorist attack in Costarican history took place. Tico terrorists (can you believe that?) placed a car bomb against the American embassy downtown San Jose. Since some playing in the American League were US marines, people working at the US embassy and a few teachers who worked at Country Day School and The Costa Rica Academy (now International School), we were not allowed to play for the rest of the year. This was in the beginning of the 80’s.

The Boliche Dent (phone 2253-5745) in San Pedro was remodeled many years ago and kind of forgotten by those who live on the west side of San Jose and are looking for entertainment because the new Metrobol was opened in Escazu in 1999. This was a short victory for the west-side bowling players because the owner of Aliss stores thought it would be more profitable to open a department store in 2006 and tear out the bowling.

Bowling in Cariari
The year 2012 brings us a new place to go bowling in Cariari, a bowling center with the name BolCariari (phone 2239-2222), almost next to the Cariari shopping mall. The location is set very smartly as the Cariari – Belen and lower Heredia area is growing fast and there was very little entertainment in that area of the Central Valley. Many large North American companies are getting installed in the many Industrial parks in the area, like Global Park and Ultra Park, creating thousands of jobs for the younger Costarican middle class.
Rock ‘n’ bowl
Bowling in Cariari is fun! You can do it with friends, family and in a league. One of the few sports I know people practice while having a beer. BolCariari also offers Cosmic Bowling, which you can do without having to go to the Milky Way. Cosmic Bowling is glow-in-the-dark bowling with a dance club atmosphere that rocks the center with a state-of-the-art sound system. Have fun while bowling with a light show, in the fog and a DJ who keeps the center rockin’, it really is the place to be to rock ‘n’ bowl and great entertainment! I invite you to go bowling in Cariari and also check out their Facebook page.

Huge growth area
Cariari real estate has remained very stable over the years and construction is going on everywhere. All this is creating a great market for BolCariari as bowling has been proven to be a great sport and pastime for young and old. Investment in the Cariari real estate market is a great opportunity now because of the huge amount of jobs that are created in the area by all the North American companies moving into the different Free Trade Zones between Cariari and the city of Heredia.
