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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

What You Like•Love About Living in Costa Rica?

MANY people seem to be in a BIG state of flux these days!  LOTS of people have fantasized about moving to Costa Rica "one day" - but the reality of that has changed for MANY.  Some people that had SWORN they'd NEVER move from Costa Rica - are suddenly moving.  Others that NEVER thought they'd leave their Motherland are thinking of - or moving to Costa Rica.  Some of us are still REALLY HAPPY with the lives we've created in Costa Rica.   

EVERYONE has their story!  SHARE yours!!!

I REALLY want to hear about YOUR thoughts and experiences about Costa Rica and they may help someone else if they have the reality - so I'm asking some questions.  

And please do NOT sugar coat anything or be afraid to speak YOUR TRUTH - say it like it's been for YOU!!!  

Unlike with most, the more DETAILED you get - the more people can understand what and how you think so DETAILED is GOOD to me!!!!

PLUS I want to start a list of WORDS•DESCRIPTIONS 
(here again - DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS - or just 1 or a few words - is all GOOD to me):

Why Have•AreYou MOVING AWAY FROM Costa Rica?

(what about it do you like•love or why can't you go) 

PLUS I want to start a list of WORDS•DESCRIPTIONS
