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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

TRADE YOUR Frequent Flier Miles for some good options in Costa Rica

My friend Diane Sobel - Globerman is creating:
Rio Tenorio Experimental Field Station & Tent Camp in Costa Rica
(this address WILL be shortening up soon as she's JUST starting the page)

She REALLY wants to attend an Intentional Community Conference in Baltimore, MD from November 13-18 but does not have the $$ for the plane ticket.

Might YOU have some FREQUENT FLIER MILES on United or American for a ticket FROM Costa Rica to Baltimore (or another nearby airport) and back for November 13-18 - that you can TRADE her for time at one of her homes near the beach in Playa Grande or Langosta in the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica (Tamarindo is in between both places so that tells you where it is) - OR - time at one of her future farm retreats, homemade organic chocolate or just pay it forward - knowing you're abundant frequent flier miles are going to an entrepreneur that's LIVING and SHARING her dream.

She wrote:
"Anticipating success I am making homemade chocolate from Nicaraguan fair trade cocoa beans to share with all the participants there. Definitely just the chocolate is worth getting me to Baltimore!! Thanks for all the support!!!"

I'm REALLY EXCITED for her as this has been a BIG PASSION•DREAM of hers for awhile and it's REALLY EXCITING to see it happening!!  She's already hosted quite a few groups in her short time!!!! 

Diane is a just about there Empty Nest mom (the first one just flew the coup) that's been a stay at home mom for all these years - giving to everyone else - and NOW it's time for HER to realize/live out HER DREAMS!!!

(actually, I'm going to suggest to her to consider doing one of those Crowd Funding things perhaps where people can donate cash to her in case she doesn't get the ticket trade.  I'll keep y'all posted here)
