INTRODUCING THE COSTA RICA PURA VIDA SERIES
If you’ve been to Costa Rica, then you’ve heard of Pura Vida right?! In English this is literally translated to ‘Pure Life’. However to the Costa Ricans, the meaning is a lot more profound. No matter what anyone’s current situation is, life for another person can be less fortunate than your own. Thus your situation doesn’t seem so bad. No matter what you have in life, everyone is here together and life is short, so it’s time to start living it ‘Pura Vida’ style.
Now that’s clear let me tell you more about what I’m doing here. The Pura Vida Series will be a number of posts about our trip to Costa Rica back in March 2017. Since experiencing this insanely bio diverse country and living the Pura Vida lifestyle, I have been looking forward to sharing with you the details of my itinenary...
I will be featuring the geographical areas that I visited and the adventures that we got up to in each as well as my favourite hotel and dining reviews. There was certainly a lot of outdoor activities involved so if you love hiking, exploring secluded beaches and lagoons and trekking through different terrains Costa Rica is for you. What I loved about the country is that there is literally something to do for everyone, city scape, picture postcard beaches, volcanoes, rainforests, wildlife, biodiversity, remote lodges, luxury hotels and the most incredible food and drink. As a holiday destination, what’s not to like?!
We couldn’t decide on the areas we wanted to see so we chose a mixture of beaches, rainforests, volcanoes, cloud forests and the city scene, but we included our signature adventure travel-style at each! Yes we did a quad centre-trip!
If you’ve read my previous Itinerary post, you will remember we used the local knowledge of Costa Rica Expeditions in the planning stages which allowed a stress-free experience considering we ended up on 2 internal flights, numerous car journeys and even a private lake crossing!
All posts relating to The Pura Vida Series were written from my experiences from our trip to Costa Rica. All photography is also my own and there is no affiliation to tour companies, hotels or experiences we enjoyed whilst there.
I hope you enjoy the Pura Vida series and as always I’m up for some of your thoughts and recommendations. If you’re off to Costa Rica or are in the planning process do drop me a comment below.
