I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com
(you do NOT need to have a PayPal account to do this - just a credit or debit card)
Do YOU have/know of a Business•Event•News•Place•Things 4 Sale•Rent to add? Email:


• APPLE LAPTOP - Do you have a Laptop you're not using? Mine recently broke so I'm using a lender. Must be new enough to run current Skypes & have an SDCard slot.
• Amazon.com or GoDaddy.com Credit•Gift Certificate (attn: SarongGoddess@gmail.com)
• Something else to share?? A gift certificate or invite for your business? I'm open!! (at times I'll add other things here that I'm seeking)

Where is Vicki Skinner Moving To?

After over 5 years as the mistress of the House of Connections/Self Empowerment (aka the Fountains and the Self Empowerment Lending Library), with the economy as it is and tourism being basically flatlined (throughout MUCH of the world) & acknowledging/coming aware of LOTS of "stuff" in my life, I'm taking a MUCH NEEDED BREAK & Selling it ALL (a 6,000 square foot, 6-bedroom home's worth of "stuff"!!)!!!

It's funny how MANY people's "issues" come up when I share this with them - often around not having a plan/knowing what's next but I am in a state of TRUST & SURRENDER for what my next adventure will show me!!  I am open for ALL New Possibilities!!!  

Though - my human/ego-based self would LOVE for that to be a House Sitting gig in the Escazu area as I LOVE the life I've created here (I NEED a break to recoup all the $$ I've been putting out lately to help everyone)!!  

Even better, do you know anyone that has their house for sale & hasn't been able to sell it but had to leave & wants someone there to keep it spruced up & ready to show at a moments notice, help them sell their stuff &/or help them sell their home??

THOUGH - FIRST I'd REALLY REALLY LOVE to take 2-4 weeks off house sitting starting July 18 in a cooler location with great internet & 3G cell connection & on/near a good bus line so I can just chill, regroup & focus on taking care of ME!!!  

Do you have a Vacation property that needs help promoting it since MOST things (all over the world overall) seem to be quite dead?  Let me stay at your place & you know me, I'm GOOD at getting the word out (for others - I just wasn't doing that for myself!! [LOTS of healing/growth opportunities going on!!!  YEAH!!!])

Know anyone in the Sarasota area? I'd LOVE to do a house sitting NEAR water (I've never lived as far from water as I have these past 6 years & NEED a water fix!!) in October/November - the peak of the Rainy Season in Costa Rica (since I've developed such an allergy to mold here). While there I'd LOVE to do some talks on Moving to Costa Rica as well as Medical/Dental/Holistic Tourism & maybe bring a group of people back to get some dental work?!?!!?

Do YOU know anyone that this could fit the bill - where I'm still able to back (since I'm not much of a Taker)???
