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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

• 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)

Greetings friends, I hope you are very good right now. I wanted to greet them after several months without writing, really sorry but he had many options of how to communicate. But I was always very present and heartily thank you for all the support in one way or another I have passed on, I have no words to thank so many good vibes you sent me and which were the engine and the energy to reach the Everest . You went with me to this mountain, climb it together!

Also wanted to say that I stand here with Thessa and children this Friday June 8 at 7 pm at the Copa flight CM-0391. This because many people have asked when I return.

It will soon be back and ready for hiking, (and miss you too our precious forests and trails)

A hug and see you soon.

Warner, Thessa and boys!

NOTE:  Warner and his partner lead AWESOME hiking tours in CR via http://PicoTours.com

Soy un escazuceño y estoy muy orgulloso de este hombre que nos ha demostrado que con mucho trabajo se puede lograr lo que se propone un deportista. Ahora le pido lo mismo que le pidió su amigo guatemalteco ¨perfil bajo¨
