BobbyRica Angel Catorse: Nazareth Cascante

A few weeks ago, a hot tican has been crowned the new Miss Costa Rica Universe. Her name is Maria Nazareth Cascante Madrigal and she’s a real stunner! A 21-year old Pharmaceutical Science student from El Tambor of Alajuela, Maria stands at a statuesque 5’8″. She also works part-time as a model. Nazareth won the pageant after answering that she will invite former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to her home. She also wants to support research into treatment of epidermolysis bullosa in children. She will compete for the Miss Universe pageant this December.

BobbyRica Angel Siete: Vanessa Vargas

We have someone special here in BobbyRica Angel and her name is Vanessa Vargas. As an accomplished calendar model, tv talent and sportswoman, Vanessa is everything you’d ever want in a woman. She also happens to be a new addition to the Petit Mundo Group family as one of our key people in 9*N Escazu! Born on July 20, 1989 at Puntarenas, Costa Rica, this charismatic green-eyed beauty attended Escuela Líder Central de Jaco. Ever athletic, Vanessa stays fit and maintains her hourglass figure with intensive sports like boxing and tae kwon doh. Sorry guys, but this beauty is already called for. She is happily married to Sydney Ferreira Machado. We are proud to have you in our fold, Vanessa! Pura Vida!

We end the holiday season at Fiestas de Palmares.

This is celebrated in the first two weeks of January in Palmares de Alajuela. Concerts with music, rodeos (even bullfighting) and firework displays are held. There is also a fairground and sporting competitions.

Getting myself fit out of the water.

I have been spending the past two weeks since the New Year getting back in shape, as it were. That fight with the bull brought out the best in me, but took the best out of me too. Fortunately, San Jose is actually a pretty good place to get yourself fit in so many different ways.
