Welcoming July in our Wild & Wonderful Southern Zone of Costa Rica

Welcome to Several New Subscribers & Pura Vida Connections to All!

Well, it certainly has been wild here ... nothing is for sure ... but it seems like the roads will be open again with no problems. Also, many of us have found out ... Whatsapp, Facebook, and Instagram have not been delivering photos or voice messages and hopefully, this will clear up soon.

Looking forward to seeing many of you this week at the San Isidro Feria ... we are in Colibri's Corner from 7 to 8pm on Thursday and Fridays from 8 til 1pm (first booth in front of the ex-supermercado at back of feria.)

We also deliver 7 days a week and can help with your feria shopping if you don't want to come in. write

Caretakers Wanted:

Hi All . . . this is Suzanna from Finca Amrta. I am looking for a person or a couple that would love to house sit for me starting around the 20th of July until the 20th of August or possibly until the 7th of September.

I am looking for someone who loves dogs and animals and has a keen interest in gardening.

You will not be alone on the farm . . . however you will be responsible for keeping my green house watered and cared for as well as feeding my dogs and chickens daily.

If there are volunteers on the farm at that time you will be interacting with them.

If you are interested please contact me at: or on

WhatsApp +506 8367 7687.

You can also call me directly on my home phone: 2770-4185.

I have no doubt there is someone or some couple that will be perfect for this opportunity. If you have never been to Finca Amrta . . . you will be in awe of the beauty that sounds us.

May your life be filled with joy.
