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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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

A UNIQUE place to EAT that's open on NEW YEARS DAY with a different twist on "Comfort Food" & foods that help deal with "The tail of the dog that bit you"!!

MOST restaurants are CLOSED on NEW YEARS DAY in Costa Rica and MANY people "tied one too many on" - so where can you go to deal with those hunger pains AND get some unique tasty treats to help deal with "The tail of the dog that bit you" (a Hangover) & Comfort Foods??

COCINA ECLECTICA  -  in ESCAZU (Trejos Montelegre)!!

Join Joanna & "friends" (old & new) as she's servin' up *Appetizers•Bocas•hors d'oeuvres made with a unique twist (even the more familiar "Comfort Foods" are not totally your old standby's) and soothing music (for those that might have celebrated too much!!) for her "friends" (old & new)!!!

Sometimes she posts what she MAY be preparing on her Facebook page:
(make sure to read the description of what Cocina EclecTica is about below)

It's also a Parade-free • Football-free Zone (for those not into the standard New Years rituals from the U.S.)

12pm/noon till ___??!!!

You just pay per plate•drinks (average plate is 2,000-3,000-c)

Reservations HELPFUL but not mandatory
(to help her plan ahead with help)
(directions given upon reserving)

(I'll be headin' over some time today if I can find a taxi!!)


*WHAT IS Joanna's Cocina EclecTica?

It is a REALLY UNIQUE space where Joanna loves to show/teach her "friends" (old & new) about unique was of creating incredibly tasty morsels with matching of flavors you'd never think of, using doTerra therapeutic grade Essential Oils, etc.

They're kind of like "Bocas" but not as small (usually, some higher priced to make items may be smaller) - Hors d'oeuvres - on smaller plates.

It's not a "restaurant".  The presentation is kind of like Dim Sum where she prepares and brings the dishes•courses out to all the guests at the same time (note that it's ok to say no to something).

(any time you come hang out at Cocina EclecTica, plan on being there for AT LEAST 1-1/2-2+ hours for the full “experience”!)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Joanna and what she's creating as it's just SOOOOO cozy and welcoming and TASTY EXPERIENCE!!
