What will September bring to our Rockin' Southern Zone of Costa Rica

Many thanks to David Fulton ... what a shot!

Welcome to Many New Subscribers & Pura Vida Blessings to All!

There will be two U.S. Embassy Outreach programs in September in our area ... September 25th in Dominical and September 26th in PZ downtown... very useful if you need a new passport, etc. We used their services once and it was a true time & agro saver! Here is the link for Dominical and here is the one for the PZ event.

Look forward to seeing many of you this week at the PZ feria ... Thursdays from 7 til 8pm and Fridays from 9 til 1pm.

Companies must report the Shareholder Registration ... begins now in September. Important for Corporation holders.

New Costa Rica Tourism Campaign ... "Only the Essentials" is debuted

We are looking for something (herbal or something similar) to use as a poultice to reduce swelling. We have horses here in Platanillo (big ones, Thoroughbreds!!) and one has some swelling in his hind legs - probably tendons. Back in the US we would apply a poultice and wrap it which could help with the swelling and draw out minor infection. Do you have or know of anything locally that could be made up or used for this sort of thing?


Looking for goats with good genetics and raised without GMOs, antibiotics or hormones? Male: 3 years old, he’s a cool guy, the smartest goat and most relaxed goat we’ve ever met! He’s a mix of La Mancha & Sannen. Born polled, muy mansa. Female: 2 years old and a strong mama. She’s had two sets of healthy kids (the last set of twins were both polled) and is ready for the next round. Good milk production. She’s also a mix of La Mancha & Sannen. Located in Cartago Province, approximately 40mins from Cartago center. We’re asking 120,000 colones, negotiable for the pair, a low price in consideration of the fact that you’ll need to arrange transport for them. For more information: Whatsapp 8550 9046. Thanks!

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