Meteor Shower on its Way to our Fabulous Southern Zone of Costa Rica

​Bless the Bees & the Sunflowers

Doing errands in PZ or SJ??? I have some very reliable taxistas here in PZ and in SJ who have helped me and others doing many errands such as going to "aduana" or customs and picking up packages, shipping things here & there, shopping for specific items, etc. etc. etc. ... If you ever would prefer to "leave the driving to them" ... and the hassle ... the costs are pretty minimal compared to the energy & traveling saved. Ask me at Colibri's Corner or send a message to:

Thanks for updating ads ... please continue to do so ... best for all of us!

Also ... for no reason that is apparent to me ... some names are dropping off our mailing list... if you know anyone this has happened to and they wish to get back on the list ... just send an email to this address. It is very unintentional and I apologie if this has happened to you. You can always check the weekly letter on our blog page:

Looking for work? Look here ... tell your Costa Rican friends!
