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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

Chiropractor Dianne Rowley Transition

After battling cancer, Costa Rica chiropractor - Dianne Rowley made her Transition/died peacefully at her home on Friday morning - February 17, 2012

Dianne practiced chiropractic medicine in Heredia and Escazu after moving to Costa Rica from the US years ago.

She is survived by her husband Charles Jennings who asks that in lieu of flowers, we honor Dianne's memory by planting a flower, bush, or tree at our homes.  

It is unknown at the moment if a memorial service will be held.  An announcement will be issued if a memorial service is scheduled with the date, time and location.


Having experienced many people making their transition and knowing it can be challenging at times to come up with words, quotes, poems or songs - I've started creating a site that may be of assistance:

Dianne Rawley Jennings was a great gal. I had many Hawaiian style chiropractic and craneo-sacral therapy sessions with her. She helped me weather difficult and stressful times, especially when I was caring for my parents during their last years. I will miss Dianne greatly. Katherine Masis

Diane was a terrific neighbor and friend. I have fond memories of our commutes to work together. I was so lucky to live next door and be her guinea pig when she was in her massage training. I still cherish some of the most wonderful candid photos she took of our kids when they were small.

She often talked about wanting to "kick back", but she was simply too talented. Whatever she did, she excelled.

I so regret not getting to see her in the new life she made in Costa Rica. I can't imagine what kind of cancer she had, but it must have been tough to take this girl!

She will always have a special place in my heart. My sympathy to her surviors.

I was grounded, she a seeker. We were both ambitious, adventerous. Wonderful paths do diverge.
Soulmates but not forever. I'm blessed to have known her, her loving spirit still resides in a corner of my heart. MIKE W.
