Central America is amazing. Cuba is unique and Costa Rica is special. You will listen all the time “Pura Vida”. The most important concept to understand and feel in Costa Rica and especially here in Montezuma is what they mean for “Pura Vida”. To me “Pura Vida” meant Pure Life. Natural, untouched, simple and pure. To explain it in more depth ‘Pura Vida’ can be a greeting, a state of mind, a way of life. You meet someone walking down the street, you say ‘Pura Vida’. You catch the perfect wave while surfing, you say ‘Pura Vida’. You have a wonderful day, you say ‘Pura Vida’. You find a great bar while walking the streets of Montezuma, you say ‘Pura Vida’. It can mean anything but always something good. Anytime something good happens, “Pura Vida” is the appropriate thing to say.
