August 2020 Online / Magazine Highlights

Howler is proud to feature Costa Rica’s Cabalgata heritage as the cover story for our August E-magazine. As a firsthand witness to this spectacular annual event, the author/photographer, Annika Beaulieu, captured a unique form of traditional expression keeping generations of Ticos connected: “a cowboy culture that has persisted for almost 200 years celebrating, ironically, their victory over a North American invasion.”  

 

Our Travel & Adventure section takes you snorkeling along the Caribbean coast and bird watching in a prime location for resplendent quetzals. You’ll find an update on the enhanced experiences awaiting visitors to Diamante Eco Adventure Park, and  a crime history synopsis of the years when Costa Rica harbored famous fugitive financier Robert Vesco.

 

Surfing CR provides an outlook on next year’s world competition schedule and a status report on what’s been happening in Costa Rica during prolonged restrictions on the hours when beach access is allowed. We also revisit the “Endless Summer” lifestyle of surf legend Robert August before and after his years as a Tamarindo celebrity.

 

The creative and philanthropic passions of Steve Bakunas are showcased in Howler’s Arts Culture Entertainment section, with Costa Rica being the place where Steve and his wife, actress Linda Lavin, decided to make their adopted second home. An unusual and spontaneous glimpse at sea salt harvesting is brought to you by a professional photographer who found himself in the right place at the right time.

 

Pura Vida offers medical advice about low back pain, and historical and modern wisdom about the power of yoga. Also learn how your gut health and mental health are interlinked, and enjoy a simply  delicious recipe for Mediterranean shrimp.

 

CR Biz informs you about Costa Rica’s groundbreaking achievement in legalizing same-sex marriage. You’ll also find advice on researching all the pertinent Homeowners Association information purchasing a condo property, and applying mindfulness techniques in your business.

 

The Jacó regional section features articles about three talented women who are making their mark on the Jacó arts scene, a local cookbook author, and several initiatives benefiting families facing economic struggles. Another new regional section puts the spotlight on the Central Valley community of Atenas and a published author who has put down roots there.
