So much splendor in our Southern Zone of Costa Rica

“Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. ” ― Oscar Wilde

Welcome to Several New Subscribers ... and Pura Vida Blessings to All!

The first 12 days of January here, are considered the "12 Pintas" ... the first day of January represents January, the second, February, until the 12th day represents December. Legend has it that if it rains on any of those days, that month will be rainy too! So it looks like we will have a wet & wonderful & green year here in our part of Paradise.

Very excited to announce a wonderful new product, Cafe Conciencia, 100% Certified Organic. It is dark & rich & delicious and beautifully presented. Well worth trying and please let us know what you think!

We just got in a shipment of fluoride free toothpastes ... sorry we have been out for the last few weeks.

Housesitter for February Vacation

Looking for an independent animal and nature lover to be a surrogate mom or dad for my 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 chickens. Lovely farm in the mountains of southern Costa Rica near San Vito. I am going on vacation for 18 days in February, from February 6 to February 24, 2018. Small renovated house with high speed internet, hot water shower, washing machine, and all amenities. Small organic greenhouse. Peace, privacy but only 15 minutes from town by car. There is no bus however, and I will be driving my car, so transportation is an issue; taxis are available and cost $10 US to town. I provide all the animal food. Please contact me at or WhatsApp +1 506 8725 4688 Melanie
