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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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. VOLUNTEER TO HELP: 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!!
DONATE: 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! ANY size DONATION is APPRECIATED! (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)
OTHER WAYS TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION FOR THIS BLOG
• 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)

Dealing with the U.S. Embassy - GET NAMES & EMBASSY ID NUMBERS
When dealing with ANYONE at the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica (or probably any other one) - make sure to
GET THE PERSONS NAME AND EMBASSY ID NUMBER!!!
Otherwise - that long conversation you just had MAY get to be repeated over and over again till you get to the right person!!!
