Our flight to Costa Rica arrived late so we stayed at the Pura Vida overnight before driving to our final destination the next day. Then we also stayed at the Pura Vida on our last day in Costa Rica before our early morning flight. We originally picked the Pura Vida because of its proximity to the airport. However, we discovered many more reasons why it is a good base for a Costa Rica trip. The setting is beautiful with wonderful gardens and a spectaular view of a volcano. The rooms were very comforable and spacious. Best of all was the food, We ate breakfast on our first day there and dinner on our last. Both meals were a wonderful treat - a feast for both the eyes and the palate. We also went on the tour provided by the owners of the local farmers market. This was tremenodous fun with a chance to sample some delicious tropical fruits that I had never seen before. Last, but not least, the oweners of the Pura Vida were a complete delight. They were very welcoming and gave us a tremendous amount of helpful information. I would definately stay there on my next trip.
