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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

URGENT - Do YOU have any contacts or services (or outside the box thinking) for an expedited expired child's passport for a U.S. citizen??

HELP!!!  Does anyone have any contacts or services (or outside the box thinking) to get an expedited expired child's passport for a U.S. citizen like NOW???  Friends I'm Pet Sitting for are U.S. citizens living in CR and they assumed (like many) that their son's passport expired in 10 years (like ours) - not the 5 years for kids passports and he turned 5 about 2 months ago and they're supposed to be on the American Airlines flight Fri. at around 1pm and of course this country is shut down!!!

We've been calling these Emergency Passport Expediting services but all say they HAVE to go to a passport office (say WHAT?? WHY would someone use this type of service if they could do it themselves???).

If you have ANY ideas (or contacts) PLEASE call Adam and Molly at 2-289-0009 or my cell 8-378-6679 (if you get my voicemail text me) at ANY HOUR!!!!

INCENTIVE:  They own http://VillaManuel.com - a 3-bedroom villa in Manuel Antonio & if someone can take care of this tomorrow/Fri. they'll give them a week at the villa (based on availability [which is pretty wide open since we know tourism is down])!!! (and maybe I can get them to throw in a massage or 2 at their spa on the property as they own Spa Uno [maybe more if it can be done so they can be on the 1:30pm flight tomorrow/Friday]).  If someone is helping only with the connection (to get them out Fri. or Sat.), I'm sure I can get them to give you something as well.
