  • Description


    Myself and my 5 year old and our two (old blind) shih tzus live on a beach in Costa Rica (walking distance to everything in town) . Samara is a fun eclectic town centered around the beautiful beach we live on. If you love the thought of hearing the ocean while creating art, I'd love to chat further and see some of your art. I am a massage therapist and love to meet up with other holistic professionals for trades. Or hear what you are passionate about and what you can share. I love to learn!! I have a baritone Ukelele I would love lessons!

    My 5 year old has also requested joint cooking lessons, he says he loves to cook. So I'll throw that out there...

    Artists - We have different creative projects we would love help with.
    My schedule can fluctuate based on massage clients, and 5 year old, so you must be able to work without my supervision. If you are getting your work done we are flexible with your scheduling.

    The kitchen will be available to you as well as restaurants close by. If you love to cook I will cover food costs for you, and the 3 of us to share. If you are a late sleeper (which is fine although Costa Rica might change that.) you may miss out on joint breakfast, although there will be bananas and eggs.

    Dependent upon schedules we may be able to share a few meals, we can determine when you get here what you ideally want to do for food vs time.

    If you choose there are two Costa Rican ladies that sell a plate of typico food Monday - Friday at noon for less than $5 a plate, something different every week day.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live on a beach in Costa Rica. Walking distance to everything. Next door is a Spanish language school if you want to take classes. This town is a wonderful mix of Costa Ricans and people from all over the world. Great beach for learning to surf, great for meeting people from all over.
