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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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)

CR POSITIVES - New Costa Rica Message Board

It seems many people are having more and more challenges than normal while living in Costa Rica - prices are going up a lot, safety has become a huge issue, customer service isn't always what many of us are used to, roads aren't always the smoothest, it's too hot, it's too rainy, getting around isn't the easiest . . .  The list goes on and on - to say nothing of what all's going on in the world.

I'm a HUGE believer that where we put our energy - we get more of and I'm choosing to create more POSITIVE things in my life so I've started a new practice in my life - at the end of the day I'm sitting down and looking at the POSITIVE things that happened in my life today and honoring them!

So I figured, let's share that positiveness and start a Yahoo Message Board Group where we can check in daily and share a POSITIVE story/experience that happened to you today while living in Costa Rica!!

Did you get great Customer Service at a business (ESPECIALLY share this!!)???!!! Were you in a neighborhood/area you liked??!! Did someone lend a hand when you felt down? Did someone you dealt with at a business speak English that brought you more EASE?  Did you find an amazing doctor or dentist?  Your FAVORITE Restaurant?

Share websites/message boards/blogs that bring details to give your life in or traveling around Costa Rica more EASE!

Share as MANY details as you can - the business/persons name, contact info, website+++ so WE can find them to support them also!!

Let's come together and spread a little more JOY in this world!!
