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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

SAN RAMON - HOUSE FOR RENT - 3-bedroom PLUS a 1-bedroom InLaw Cottage WAY WAY WAY AWAY from it all - near Piedades de Sur in the Mountains of SAN RAMON, Costa Rica

This 3-bedroom PLUS a 1-bedroom InLaw Cottage

It probably won't be available to rent till around the beginning of 2015 (unless there's sudden incentive like a definite tenant) as it's not been occupied in 4 years so there's LOTS of work to do here.

It's WAYYYYYYYYY out in the middle of nowhere in the mountains & up some heavy duty bumpy dirt roads.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the city of San Ramon as it seems like THE BEST city in Costa Rica with a balance of Gringos and Ticos interacting thanx to
 The Community Action Alliance of San Ramon which brings ExPats and Tico's together to help their community!!!
ActionAllianceCR.com  • 

San Ramon is about 1-1/2 hours West of San Jose and about 30 minutes from the nearest Pacific beach.

The weather is more in balance than most area around Costa Rica since it's a higher elevation (3,468 feet•1,057 meters) - similar to Escazu, San Jose, the Central Valley - so it's pretty much in the mid-high 70's year-around (it can get warmer in the lower areas and it can get lots cooler in the mountains)!

San Ramon also has LOTS of free and/or cheap CULTURAL ACTIVITIES through their Museum and a good size ExPat community (if that's what you're looking for)

e-newsletter keeps the community connected on what's going on, what's for sale, rent, to buy and more!

They also have:
Celebrating MANY holidays from St Patrick's Day to 4th of July
