In July it was our umpteeth visit to Pura Vida. It is conveniently situated near our Dad’s house, so it’s a great place to stay. From the very first visit, it felt like home away from home; and now many years later, it still continues with that homey feeling.
The owners Berni and Nhi are always welcoming and very gracious with all our requests. Best thing of our visit to Pura Vida is enjoying Nhi’s wonderful cuisine. It’s as good as any four star restaurant in the States and always guaranteed to be the very best meal we have while in Costa Rica. Her creativity always amazes and makes staying at Pura Vida extra special.
