Jumping for Joy to Be in the Beloved Southern Zone of Costa Rica

​Welcome New Subscribers and Pura Vida Blessings to All!

Thanks for all the updates ... any stragglers please get back to me if you have an ad that hasn't been yet been brought current on our website.

Looks like we have lots of rain ahead ... so be prepared all! The Cerro has been closed quite a bit the last few days ... when it is open they are requesting 4 wheel drive only, so check it out if you are heading up or down!

Was looking at the stats for the website and the most visited page is the Rentals ... I know there are several people looking currently. Let us know if you have anything to rent!

There is a sweetheart of a man who sells us baskets for the feria ... really good quality that last and last. He asked if I could help him ... he can do just about any size ... so if you are interested ... let me know. I would like to help him ... and you out! Figure out the dimensions you want and I can talk with him, or you can ... Spanish only.

Last week I forwarded a message about Corporate Taxes that I understand had an error ... only non active corporations need to register with the schedule given ... the active ones are actively registered already!

Here's a short video from our friends at Flutterby House ... a fabulous and welcoming hostel in Uvita. Check it out!

Definitely stop for a great meal at Nevilles at Road Beach entrance!

Check out the great Events coming up ... my personal fave is the Lifeguard Party on July 1st at Roca Verde!

Maria will be bringing fresh Coconut Milk to the Tinamastes & PZ feria.
