Mindfulness in daily life

Playa los Cedros

One of our favorite swimming locations...

Playa los Cedros

We made our way to one of our favorite beaches in this area, playa los Cedros which is nestled along the Pacific coast on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula heading North West from Montezuma towards Cabuya...what a gem with the cool clean river that flows to the ocean rich with pelicans, fishermen, and surfers too if the tide is right - Pura Vida in Costa Rica...

Tiny dancer...little lizard

This very small lizard danced it's way across the floor to our daughter's  delight..Pura Vida from Montezuma Costa Rica

Green Salad everyday for good digestion

Here in Montezuma we benefit from salad everyday with our meals because we like the way it tastes and because its healthy too.

We are lucky that Costa Rica has an abundant and easily available supply of farm fresh produce and dairy.
