I fell in love with Costa Rica’s wild volcanoes puffing clouds. When I first discovered Samara, I fell in love with this mountain in the bay that although not a volcano, still often appears to make clouds.


I dream of a place where mountains make clouds and as odd as it seems the ocean makes land.  The plants grow ginormous with little work of a man, while the extremes of the weather keep you humble and tan. 

Just after purchasing my “vacation” home, we had a 7.6 earthquake. The ocean plates sit in such a way that rather than have a tsunami, the earth raised giving us a meter and a half more beach.

The alarm clock each morn is a soft sun filled hand brushing your cheek with a whisper of sand. Monkeys scream songs very few comprehend, while horses dance freely as their spirit intends.


This just happens here.


The locals are fairytale wondrous souls greeting strangers with smiles that melt hearts once turned cold. Time slows to a trickle of a joyous beat and worry is unheard of in this land of retreat. 


And this….


Dogs meditate unleashed by obedient rules and the children are cherished to be childish fools.



And this…



Laughter is the measure of how your day went, while friendships are earned by the smiles you lent.

This is Didier. He will probably kill me for posting this but the line about fairytale wondrous souls…every-time I read that line, he comes to mind.  He works at C&C Surf and is the most amazing soul one should be so lucky to know.

Your worth is not made by the amount that you own, but instead by the holas you earn pedaling along. Your senses are challenged by mystical abnorms.

Like the sound of the sunshine amidst rainbows that smell, while musicians play music with notes you can see. Laughter tastes so good in this town by the sea.

 This is my Heaven, peace in my soul, my heart, my SAMARA, my fairytale home. ~ Juls ❤
