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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

Saludos amigas y amigos !

Warner y Thessa.

!A donde vamos !
Esta caminata nos llevará a un parque poco conocido pero que tiene grandes bellezas, este es el parque Nacional Irazú en el sector de Prusia. Luego de pagar la entrada se toma por un camino de asfalto hasta nos desviaremos a un sendero llamado el Roble. Por llegado a una intercepción el camino se torna plano con algunas pequeñas bajadas. Se pasa por diferentes estratos de bosque donde predomina el eucalipto que fue introducido hace ya muchos años. Luego se tomará a un sector conocido como La Gruta y de allí se baja para llega a un camino de lastre que nos llevará nuevamente a donde está la microbús.
La caminata tiene por lo general poca inclinación pero hay que ir despacio pues algunas veces se camina a 3,000 metros.
