We cannot describe the love and warmth and pure frienship we found at Pura Vida. I was to spend one night here, before I met mi novio Monday am to leave for the beach.(we ended up spending 3 nights in total!!) I arrived alone for the first time in Costa Rica, was given great directions how to find the taxi that would take me to their hotel and was welcolmed with open arms. A single woman travelling to Central America, this was such a relief. After receiving the best room there (IMHO), the Volcano, I asked a million questions and Jose, whom was there for my welcome, was lovely, accomodating and very patient with me. The next morning, my lovely novio surprised me at the hotel and they set us both up with an amazing breakfast, before we left for the beach. Before we left, we booked the following night to stay there. Coming back, was even more lovely, with the best dinner we had had the whole trip!! After leaving again for the Coast, our plans changed quickly, and a call to Berni late night, asking to stay there an extra night, was welcomed with open arms!! Spending our last night in Costa here, was pure heaven there. Clean, friendly, welcoming, charming and "real". We will be back.. every time!! Thank you, Berni, Bandit and perros, Nhi, Carlos (WIIISSSCONSIN), Jose and all the staff!! You are living the Pura Vida indeed!! Muchas Gracias!!
