Welcome to Pura Vida House – Experience the Most Authentic Costa Rica Vacation

All-inclusive vacations at a tranquil nature-filled hacienda

(it’s like visiting friends, a completely fresh approach to exploring Costa Rica)

Pura Vida House is our home, located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

IMG_3245We are building a unique experience for travel – become part of the community, and do it with all the comforts, and better experiences than a resort can offer. This is not about pre-packaged experiences, but something special for the folks who don’t just want a cookie cutter vacation. Arrive as a stranger, and leave as a part of our family.
