Leaving October in our Beloved Southern Zone of Costa Rica

Sometimes life feels like walking on a tightrope.

Welcoming several new members to our Chayotevine Family this week ... just as I am writing this a 'temblor' or earthquake just rattled away. There have been several lately. As always, be prepared for anything, which brings me to one of my favorite sayings ... "trust in God and tie your horses."

Our web provider messed with our links recently and thanks to all who let me know. The links below should all be right ... our apologies for any confusion. If you ever miss a weekly Chayotevine Newsletter or you want to check out past ones ... you can go to the Blog page here.

My name is Kahlil Calavas and I have been developing high tech marketing techniques in Costa Rica since 2009. The latest techniques have been creating video, 360 tours and social media campaigns with very engaging content. Our latest Facebook live videos have been getting in the thousands of views in just a few days time and our 360 tours are now Facebook compatible and have been getting huge reach. Facebook is excited about its 360 capabilities so it has been it has been boosting the reach for early 360 tour adopters. Don't feel intimidated by costs as we have offerings for most budgets and know you will return as we are driven by results and will only take a job if we believe we can make it happen. We are available at both the Perez and Tinamaste feria for free consultation by appointment. Please feel free to call my cell with any questions 8305-1390 or email at
