Leaving May with a big splash ... welcoming June to the Magnificent Southern Zone of Costa Rica

Welcome to Many New Subscribers & Pura Vida Blessings to All

It is feeling like we will be having a wet & wonderful Green Season this year ... lots of rain in our forecast right now.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the citizen-made bridge over the Rio General got swept away ... today it was announced that two new Bailey Bridges will be installed.

Also remember to check the passage on the Cerro de la Muerte (Highway 2) as it has been closed & opened already a few times.

Hope to see many of you this week at the Perez Zeledon feria ... our booth (Colibri's Corner) will be open from 7 til 8 on Thursdays and Fridays from 8 til 1pm. Pre-orders are very appreciated!

We also offer shipping and delivery service throughout Costa Rica. For our area ... we have a network of Xpress & Taxi's who can delivery our products 7 days a week ... just let us know! On feria days, we can also do limited shopping and shipping.

Here is an update on our dear friend, Marguerite from Sheri Cooke ... infinite thanks to all of you who are helping out.

Our neighbor at the PZ feria, Maria, will be bringing fresh Coconut Milk and also to the Tinamastes feria.

We are having a fundraising to purchase sound healing instruments for the children’s palliative care clinic in San Isidro. The first hour will be a vibrational Attunement with the crystal bowls and the second hour will be a training on how to use Tibetan bowls for sound therapy for palliative care, a sample of Vyola's training with the center. If you can't come and want to donate please email Muchissimas gracias! (see more info at Events page)

Rico's Cajun Seasoning Blend

Rico's Rub has a new, Cajun, spice blend available at Colibri Corner. It is a traditional Cajun recipe, with a little twist of course. This blend is great for seafood, like blackened red snapper, fish tacos, or with chicken or meats. It has five different types of peppers blended into a medium hot spice. It's hot enough to taste, but not too hot to enjoy. Developed by request it has received nice reviews at a local restaurant. Put a little spice in your life with Rico's new Cajun Seasoning Blend.
