  9. Hola... My friend is wanting to spend a couple of months here in Boquete (or close by!) in Feb/March. She is okay with a "humble" rental... the biggest concern of hers is that there is a fenced/secure yard for her dog. She is currently in Costa Rica -- spening less than $300 for a rental... I told her to expect a bit more, but she cannot go past $450 MAX. I'm reaching out here on CL to see if anyone may have a rental that meets those parameters. If yes, please contact me! :) Thanks, Joy

    GENTLE HATHA YOGA Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9:30 am -- 10:30 am $6.00 / class “Community Class” — held in the Amigos de Animales building in Alto Boquete* A Hatha Yoga class that is gentle, slow and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style. As this class develops it is able to be custom-tailored to the group’s needs in the spirit of traditional yoga where asanas (poses) were ‘prescribed’ for various conditions (ie, back pain, tight shoulders, and a multitude of other aliments / afflictions.) … Hence, the more you attend practice — and provide feedback — the more supportive and deep the practice will become. This has been Yoga Boquete’s most popular class! * Amigos de Animales is located in Alto Boquete, across the street from Super Centro Ivan. Look for the Amigos de Animales sign, and turn right and follow short dirt/gravel road to green building on the left. There is plenty of parking. Join community yoga classes … and support a worthy cause! A percentage of the class fee goes to support Amigos de Animales, a non-profit, volunteer organization that assists animals. http://www.yoga-boquete.com Questions?

  11. A hungry, young Mama Cat & her three babies appeared a few days ago, seeking food and love -- both of which I am able to provide, but only temporarily. Kittens are estimated to be approx. 5-6 weeks; Mama estimated to be around 1 year old -- none are yet 'fixed' or with vaccinations. The plan is to foster them until they are ready to be adopted (another few weeks). They are scheduled for NEXT month's animales clinic for operations & shots. They are a sweet, loving, and seemingly healthy feline family. Ideally, the two female kittens would adopt together -- as they seem to share a special bond. If you, or anybody you know, would like to become a "forever home" to any of these kittens and/or mama cat, please contact me.
