I've been sharing this blog with you for over 8 years & it has over 2,200 entries so of course some things might be out of date. If you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you'll have some basic info to get you started.

Better yet - do you have some time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love (that comes up often on the first page of google searches) & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help going through & updating things. Let me know if you can help!! People that speak Spanish are ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!
Has this blog helped you in any way? Given you more EASE or helped you find something? Has it brought you more exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR Appreciation for what I share with you.

Better Quality BEDDING and SHEETS • Fine Linens in Costa Rica (where to find)

Based on MY taste/observation/experience, Costa Rica is REALLY lacking in good higher QUALITY bedding/sheets for sheet snobs like myself (my bed [a complete memory foam bed with NO coils as coils in a bed are REALLY BAD for anyone with High Blood Pressure, Pain and/or Arthritis!!!!]) is my SANCTUARY and I use soft/sensuous sheets of 600+ thread counts and have the MOST LUSCIOUS•SENSUOUS feeling blanket I've EVER found (from Orotex)!!  I sleep so little so when I do, I want it to be a MAGICAL experience!!!!

Typically the sheets I've found in many stores doesn't even have a thread count listed on it so Goddess only knows what it is and it often is quite rough and scratchy and often the elastic on the bottom sheet doesn't last long.

Finding special/COOL sheets - hahahahhahaha!!!

Below is a list of some places where I've found bedding of at least 200 count (again - finding thread count listed on sheets in CR is RARE so we start with what we have to!!).

Another option is to buy things online/on the internet/web & have friends/family bring them to you. You can have them shipped to you & though the item could be cheap, they often are in oversized boxes hence there will often be a fee for such oversized boxes.

The BEST QUALITY in bedding for the LOWEST PRICE I get online at:

& have people bring them to you!

Shipping of your WHOLE order within the U.S. is just $1!! 
They also have AMAZING prices for Memory Foam Toppers which are shipped quite tightly and I’ve had people bring me king size ones in their suitcase! I just ordered some 330 Thread Count Solid Sateen Sheet Set for just $30!!


Make sure to tell them ALL you found them on Vicki's (aka - the Sarong Goddess!!) Living Life in Costa Rica blog
