A new life in Costa Rica

Sharing our journey from the U.S. to the Osa region of Costa Rica

Pura what?


“Pura vida!” That’s the phrase you hear from Ticos, many times a day. So what does it really mean? Well I’m NO expert, having lived in Costa Rica for less than two months, but I can tell you what it now means to me.

In a nutshell, “pura vida” is about enjoying life…now. Today. Don’t worry about what isn’t…celebrate what is instead. You’re living and breathing now, whether some particular situation is or isn’t exactly what you hoped. So why not celebrate life? After all, it SO beats the alternative.
