ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

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 or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find here!
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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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 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 pages 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!!

DONATE:
Has my blog helped you in any way? Helped you find something•given you more EASE? Brought more exposure or business?

ANY size DONATION is APPRECIATED!
