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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

Este año el Taller se llevara a cabo en el Country Day School !!
recuerden que no se trata de que vayan todo el dia, con un ratito de su tiempo que puedan aportar es mas que suficiente y nos sirve un montón!

Ayudemos a los que no tienen nada en vísperas de Navidad!!


This activity is made possible by donations from from YOU!!

Your help is needed in one of 3 ways: Product, Time and/or holding the Vision/Prayers:

Clothes, shoes, socks, blankets, sleeping bags, undergarment (in new/nearly new condition) and toys (NON-battery operated). Men, women, children's and baby. Used - but in good condition and CLEAN!
ADVANCE DONATION COLLECTION:  Have your friends, co-workers, family, church, organization help collect items and drop them off at ______________________
(I'm looking into where people can drop off their Donations BEFORE the event and I will post that later so come back)
(actively participating in the Workshop and/or Caravan).
WORKSHOP: Sort and pack clothes and/or food preparation and packing
CARAVAN: On the night of December 16 driving around the streets of SJ and other selected provinces previously established and planned routes passing out these items to the homeless.
HOLDING THE VISION • PRAYING for a a nice beautiful warm night (hey - I know it'd December when it's normally VERY cold [for here] and windy and sometimes rainy - but miracles DO happen!!!  ESPECIALLY when many are holding the Vision!!!) where we have as MANY homeless people ON the streets that they can (last year when I participated in this special/IMPORTANT event, it was rainy and sort of cold so it was hard finding the homeless as they were set in more)

This is NOT to be an all day.  Even with a little bit of your time is more than enough and will go a long way and be VERY HELPFUL!

Let us help those who have nothing on Christmas Eve!
