Enjoying a Gorgeous July in our Ever Changing Southern Zone of Costa Rica

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

Our PZ feria will have "normal" hours this week in spite of the holiday.

Here is a little humor for a non-humorous topic! First the humor ... Costa Rica is NOT an island! Now for the serious ... here is a US Embassy announcement over tainted alcohol which has killed 20 non tourists in the last few weeks.

Here is another not fun topic but very important for Costa Rica. There is now a law against the mistreatment of animals and the first case is now in the courts. Click here to read more. And if you become aware of any ... there is now a Hotline toreport to the authorties.

We have some new products just in this week at Colibri's Corner (Rincon de Colibri) at the back of the Perez Zeledon Feria. Our hours are 7 til 8 on Thursdays and Fridays from 7 til 1pm.

  • Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Repellent ... many report it is the best they ever used ... and of course, no DEET.

  • Boarhead's Amazing Turmeric Extract

  • Osa Naturals wonderful Natural products

  • Francensence Oils

  • Kratom

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

RAPTOR 700r special editionWe are heading out of the country and need to sell car and quad. Extera is a 2002 with 130xxx miles on it. We've driven it everywhere in this country and my wife and 3 and 4 year old have never been in any trouble with this car. Auto locking 4x4 means you don't have to get out of the car for 4 wheel drive and we put 5 new all terrain tyres on it. It has a bull bar, with a big light bar on it. The headlights have been upgraded to led. New break shoes, a metal roof rack. New stereo and speakers. New leads and plugs. New rotor button, new rotor cap mean it's whole ignition system is new. So it's going really well. Scratch on the bull bar and one on the rear bumper other wise like new. I didn't intend to sell the car so I have been spending a bit of money on it therefor, it's a grate opportunity for a mid size family car. looking to sell the car this week hence the stupidly low price. $10,000+506 8813 3501 phone or whatsapp

This is a 3.96 Hectares/10 Acres finca in Los Mogos at the upper end of the Golfo Dulce. Tucked away just 100 meters off the principal highway (to Puerto Jiménez) in the biological, protected corridor, it combines rainforest, open spaces (about 1 hectare), fruit trees, and ornamentals for the best of all settings. Wildlife passes through daily, including Howler & Capuchin Monkeys, Coatimundi, Agouti, Peccary, Anteater, Macaws, Toucans & hundreds of other bird species. At night the Kinkajou, Margay, owls, and even the elusive Jaguar can make a visit. Since this is the biological corridor that links Corcovado National Park to the rest of Costa Rica, it is given protection and as a result is home to most of the same species as found in Corcovado. The 60 mt2 bungalow is a one-room open space with attached bathroom and can be easily added onto. The bi-fold doors and windows open up to create a spectacular feeling of living right in the forest yet secure enough to protect against the elements. Its basic structure is metal, built on raised pillars and finished with beautiful woodwork doors, floors and ceiling beams. The metal roof was recently repainted and the house is in great shape. The home is on the lower end of the property and there are other building sites further up with easy access. These can be a future home site or a few cabinas or even utilized for an agriculture project. There is a registered legal 100 meter easement that provides access and a road inside the property to the bungalow. Water is year-round from a creek and power is 100 meters from the property gate. This property has a clean title and registered plano and is easily transferred to a new owner or corporation, or can transfer the existing corporation.The privacy, comfortable breezes, surrounding forest and comfortable home all create a 'tranquilo' peaceful environment to treasure, explore, and experience. Price: $165,000More information: Contact Terri Peterson at
