From our brave Lifeguards: Another successful rescue yesterday in Dominical! One week ago, the community came together and raised more than $13,000 for the lifeguard program - THANK YOU!! This money will be used to pay lifeguard salaries, upgrade rescue equipment, rebuild the Dominical tower and continue training and certification. And we are working on installing showers at Hermosa and Dominical that will provide a sustainable income for the program as well. But this is only about 1/4 of our annual operating budget, so we will continue to need monthly donors. If you'd like to help us save lives all year long, please sign up for a monthly donation of $10, $20 or even $50 via PayPal on our website at!

Need someone to bring about 15 lbs of electrical items for which I will pay $100.
