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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

A FUNNY MUST WATCH video from the U.S. Embassy about getting LEGAL Visa to visit the U.S.!

OMGoddess!!  You MUST see this video the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica put out regarding getting a Visa to visit the U.S. - LOVE IT!!

(they have other informative videos you can SUBSCRIBE to at:

We invite you to watch this short video and share it with your family and friends. We know that the Gangnam Style is a song last year, but we had fun making our own version and carries an important message: do not want any Costa Rican fall into the traps of scammers who promise to "help" to illegally obtain a visa, work or residence in the United States. They try to deceive people to take your money. We want as many Costa Ricans visit the United States and that none of them will be scammed. The Costa Rican singer Daniel Castillo helped with the project, if you look carefully, you will also see some steps of Ambassador Andrew. Hope you like it.

Lo invitamos a que vea este corto video y lo comparta con su familia y amigos. Sabemos que el Gangnam Style es una canción del año pasado, pero nos divertimos mucho haciendo nuestra propia versión y lleva un mensaje importante: no queremos que ningún costarricense caiga en las trampas de estafadores que prometen "ayudar" para obtener ilegalmente una visa, un trabajo o una residencia en Estados Unidos. Estas personas lo tratarán de engañar para tomar su dinero. Queremos que muchos costarricenses visiten Estados Unidos y que ninguno de ellos sea estafado. El cantante costarricense Daniel Castillo nos ayudó con el proyecto, si se fijan bien, también verán algunos pasos de la Embajadora Andrew. Esperamos que les guste.
