Pura Vida, literally translated means Pure Life.

Contextually, it means Full of Life, Purified life, This is living!, Going great!

It is used as a greeting, a farewell, and to express satisfaction.

Costa Ricans use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community,

perseverance, good spirits, enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune,

whether small or large.


Pura Vida is an acknowledgment of the Costa Rican attitude towards life.
