Farewell to September with a Black Moon in our Amazing Southern Zone of Costa Rica

​We have a somewhat unusual event happening this Friday nite, September 30th ... it's called a "Black Moon" which is the second New Moon in a month.

For more astrological fun, please see Marguerite's Astrology page here.

Thanks for all the updates ... keep 'em coming. Best to keep our site as up to date as ever. And yes, house rentals are still much needed.

We are very fortunate to be away from all the ash & smoke from the Turrialba Volcano this week ... covering much of the San Jose area and causing many flights to be cancelled or delayed from Juan Santamaria Airport. Good idea to check the airport site here if you are travelling or have someone coming.

Quick border run this Tuesday ... share ride in private taxi. Write here at or talk to us at Colibri's Corner.

This Saturday at 1:30pm will be a free Kundalini Yoga Course ... please see Events page for more information.
