April 2023 Troop (Contributors)

There’s some great content brewing in Howler’s April issue, starting with our cover story featuring Brothers of Ale Brewing in Guanacaste. We’re very excited to introduce a new magazine section shining a spotlight on Costa Rica’s fashion scene.

Join us in celebrating Playa Conchal’s No. 1 spot on’s annual “50 Best Beaches in the World” list. Be intrigued by the connection between Costa Rican birds and the planet’s geological history. Travel back in time to learn about the lost legacy of Costa Rica’s railroads.  You’ll also find a memorial tribute to the legendary “King of Calypso” musician, Walter Ferguson. For readers with a green thumb, we offer tips from the Gringo Gardeners in Costa Rica Facebook group, 



As Howler’s youngest-ever contributor, born in 2011, Marek Nahorski is also likely the youngest beekeeper in Costa Rica. We’re pleased to share the two-part story of how this came about — in Marek’s own words, along with his own photos — starting this month with “My Bee Farm Visit.”  

The native of Szczecin, Poland showed signs of being multi-talented as a preschooler. “From the beginning,” his mom recalls, “he was a child who did not play with toys.” At the age of 4, Marek got his first DJ console and started playing concerts. During the pandemic, he gave an interview on Polish breakfast television. 

Soon after, Marek bravely accepted the move with his family to Costa Rica — a country so distant from his homeland. With virtually no knowledge of English or Spanish, he started attending school here. He opened a business with 3-D printers, and then used his earnings to buy vending machines. Next, he was able to fulfill another dream of having his own bee apiary. His family now looks forward to the first honey!
