Feeling Infinite Gratitude in our Southern Zone of Costa Rica


Welcome Many New Members and Pura Vida Greetings to All ...

This week, Colibri's Corner at the San Isidro Feria and our newsletter, the Chayotevine, are celebrating 10 years of connecting the most amazing, positive, forward thinking, diverse, international (y mucho mucho mas) community here in our Southern Zone of Costa Rica. We are deeply grateful for your support.

We wish to thank all of our Friends, Readers and Customers at the Feria and at Pura Vida Connections for making sure there is never a dull moment here in our little piece of paradise and how very, very, real life is here ... and for all of the support and connection I see happening here amongst us.
