Costa Rica Free Digital Magazine #91
Dear readers, advertisers, and collaborators
It is with great joy that we publish this new edition of our digital magazine, especially thanking our advertisers who allow us with their support to bring you, dear readers, entertaining content promoting this destination called Costa Ballena in the paradisiacal South Pacific region of Costa Rica.
Thanks also to those who delight us by contributing their articles to this edition; uniquely, we recognize the volunteer from Germany, Carolin Wrede, who, with her excellent pen, wrote a good part of the contents.
Practice fishing and live 100 years, writes my friend Sergio Espinoza, former colleague of the Board of Directors in the Chamber of Exporters of Costa Rica. Without a doubt, the ideal is for a long life to be accompanied by pleasant experiences; youth is worthless if it is not part of A happy life, which is told in Paradise, recently included by Netflix in its list of movies.
Many opportunities to enjoy life are what those who visit us or have made this little piece of paradise their home find; in this edition, actors who have experienced some of the diverse offerings that this destination offers in hotels, gastronomy, communal initiatives, volunteering, adventure, spa services, yoga and events of different kinds, delight us by describing the experiences they enjoyed guided by their sensations; we are sure that you dear readers will want to revive them.
The cover of this edition is dedicated to the Costa Ballena Beach Run event that took place in September, which is also the month of the Homeland in Costa Rica; in the photograph appears a well-known neighbor of this community that we are sure many know. We are proud to have collaborated with the sponsorship of this momentous sporting and cultural event that takes place in Costa Ballena.
We welcome the famous Chef Rodrigo Villalta, who, in this edition, shares his pipe ceviche recipe. Physiotherapy specialist Japhet Jones writes about her experiences and how she fell in love with the beautiful place where she lives today.
Dear businessman, we invite you to support this local media with your advertising; this allows us to continue with our printed and digital publications. Our magazine is part of a robust web platform that guarantees the reach of your brand promotion.
And as usual, remember that preserving our natural treasure is essential to continue enjoying the happiness it offers us.
Pura Vida, Editorial Team
