In 2017 we published an article regarding “how to survive the rainy season – tips for mold” … Today we hope to refresh that article, share it and provide further information which might be helpful to you as we work through the last weeks of this most wet part of the year. Click here for some updated information regarding mold removal from our friends over at ohsospotless.com
… This go around we are sharing some information from a reliable source who saw our blog on the subject matter and decided to give even more insight on the battle with mold. We’ve teamed up with the Colorado Property Group in sharing this information.
Recently we have partnered with Porch.com; a provider of services similar to ours in that they assist you with most aspects of your home. Thinking of adding onto your home? They will hook you up with the best professionals in your area. Maybe you just need help getting internet connected to your house. They are your go-to people. They will also help you move/relocate.

As found in the publication Q Costa Rica on April 5th:
RICO’s TICO BULL – Today, Monday, April 5, Costa Rica opened its land borders with Nicaragua and Panama to tourists, in what both the immigration service (Dirección General de Migración y Extranjera – DGME) and the Tourism Board (Instituto Costarricense de Turismo – ICT), call “the first phase of the opening of land borders”.
This is not advice, just my ramblings. All misspellings are mine.
Yes, let’s jump into the deep end of the pool and get into the sometimes controversial topic of climate or climate change whatever floats your boat.
Why? Climate is a BIG reason why people come to Costa Rica.
We have had a few people moving around. One resident here left for Mexico, a lady moved here from Mexico, and a couple that I know moved to Panama. Is there anything to be learned here? Well, I think so and it can be summed up with some words that I have used several times before. “Do Your Research”.
