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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

• 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!!! Does anyone have a HIGH UP Contact withIN Costa Rica's Migracion•Immigration or IMMIGRATION Attorney that KNOWS the CURRENT (as of April 19, '13) LAWS

Does anyone have a HIGH UP, English speaking person within Costa Rica's Migracion/Immigration or a lawyer that SPECIALIZES in Immigrations - that I can be in contact with NOW????

The last I heard, the NEW LAW about people that overstay their visa (even by 1 day) must  pay $100 for each month they're over and if they can't afford to pay it, they MUST stay OUT of CR of 3 months for every month they're over - was to take effect

April 23, 2013
but I have not heard/seen ANYTHING about it and I've even asked some of the local journalists and posted on Migracion's Facebook page (as have others) but no one has responded.

I want to help get the word out IF this latest April 23 is THIS COMING Tuesday and I KNOW there are MANY people that are WAY overdue and I want to share the info to help them get in integrity (I leave FAITHFULLY every 89 days or less [except 2 times when it was day 90!!]).

I know someone that was 2 years over that went to the Nicaragua border last week and they didn't blink an eye or say anything to her (she is a single mom that had a baby born here in that time and it wasn't possible for her to do that run till now).

We NEED FACTS NOW to HELP others NOW (I know - novel concept for some!!!)!!

PLEASE share my # if someone is LEGIT with CURRENT LEGIT info to HELP - 8-378-6679 - or email - LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com
