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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

JetBlue sounds great on their prices and comforts. Heads Up! On a recent trip to MIA via American, I booked on line at $445 but when I click PAY, the price jumped to $753!!! I tried a few more times and then called AA to discover that if your Credit Card is listed in the USA and you are reserving from outside the USA, then the USA Price is applied and NOT the CR price. To resolve it, it must be PAID in CR and that costs an additional $25, but can be done over the phone. But guess what? I used the SAME Credit Card to pay in CR and there was no price change! And as an added stab, BoA, the Credit Card administrator for VISA charged me an additional $8.90 for an "international transaction"... their greed is endless. AA is now down to ONE 50 lb. checked bag with additional ones at $40 each. So JetBlue for the summer would be $258 RT plus $88.60 taxes comes out about $100 less than AA, but what about "baggage charges"? Find out everything before plunking down your CC.
