Come Experience La Pura Vida
The Pure Life
You'll hear pura vida often in Costa Rica! It's a phrase with many meanings, from "Hello and GoodBye!" to "Everything's cool!" and expresses appreciation and pleasure for life in this beautiful, diverse and tropical country. Costa Rica is small - half the size of Kentucky - yet it has astounding diversity, from lush rainforests to spectacular volcanoes; majestic mountains laced with pristine rivers and pounding waterfalls; and hundreds of miles of fabulous beaches washed by the waves of both the Pacific and the Caribbean. With abundant natural resources, a rich and colorful culture, exceptional weather, a dizzying array of outdoor activities and just a two-hour flight from Miami, it's easy to settle into la pura vida!
