Dermot Dinan and Nadereh Nilforoushan have put together a very nice promotional website for the community of Jaibalito. I particularly like the Community Projects page!

We just had some wrought iron curtain rods made for our house by 2 graduates of the CECAP course in Hierrería, Ramos Cumez and Ramos Mendoza. We were very pleased with their professionalism in preparing a bid and the resulting work and installation. Ramos and Ramos also offer doors, windows balconies, or whatever you need made of iron. Their workshop is in Santa Cruz village next to the Juez de Paz. Shop local and contact them about your next project: Ramos Cumez - 5779-0163; Ramos Mendoza 4965-1434.
I occasionally list various services that are available and it has been suggested that I start a page listing all of these local services. So I have started a new page of local services: http://santacruzlalaguna.weebly.com/services.html
If you or anyone you know offers a service to residents, please send me your listing. Please keep it brief as to what the service is and how to contact, i.e. email, phone, website if any. For example:
Custom ironwork. Doors, windows balconies, or whatever you need made of iron. Ramos Cumez - 5779-0163; Ramos Mendoza 4965-1434.
