Local Farmers Markets (Ferias)

I must admit living here in Costa Rica is awesome. One of the wonderful luxuries of living here is having access to an abundance of good fresh locally farmed & organic veggies and fruits. Farmers Markets in Costa Rica are called (Ferias). We have 4 of them in between Tamarindo and Flamingo/Potrero area.

Amazon vs Local Shopping

Every time you visit a new country or a new location, you want to shop for souvenirs. We have lots of that in Tamarindo, there are all kinds of things to bring back home as cool hardwood kitchenware, t-shirts etc .The difference is when you actually decide to live here, your needs change from souvenirs to clothing, shoes, groceries, electronic devices, tools, toys, baby stuff like cribs, carseats, sheets, zippy cups, special bottles, etc.

My experience with the private medical system in Costa Rica

I am Canadian from Quebec, accustomed to a medical system with poor service. In Quebec, it is not uncommon to wait 2-3 years on a waiting list for an appointment or surgery, even if it’s something serious.  It’s never important enough to have a quick appointment unless you are just about to die. I am used to never getting a full diagnostic because they usually don’t find what you have. Why? not because the doctors are unqualified... no, it's because they are too busy!
