Enjoying Pura Vida in our Wonderful Southern Zone of Costa Rica

Warm Welcome to our Many New Readers!

I'd like to know if there is anyone in the community that knows anything about wild mushrooms or that already picks and sells them (as food and/or for therapeutic reasons), or that do some kind of eco-mycology tours? I have a friend who's a nurse but also an avid mycologist eager to transfer her knowledge while contributing to a new kind of ecotourism and business in Central America. Thank you so much in advance.
