Panoramic views. Clean mountain air. Soft breezes to caress the tired traveler. Pura Vida offers a lovely oasis away from the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life.
Pura Vida is a new mountain retreat situated 220 meters up-and-off the main road in a quiet section of Costa Rica, 40 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown San José. The 1500 square meter property hugs a privately owned mountain and consists of 3 bungalows tucked into the mountainside. Each lodge offers a spectacular 180 degree vista. In the foreground is a warm natural habitat teaming with wild birds, fruit trees (orange, lemon, grapefruit, et al.), and tropical flowers. In the distance are 3 volcanoes, unspoiled blue skies, and at night the twinkling pinpricks of San José.
Each of the 3 lodges features an open architectural concept and comes complete with masterpieces of locally handcrafted furniture, custom made fixtures, and exquisite wood paneling hewn from the finest native timber. The 3 lodges/cabanas, while retaining individual flourishes, come fully furnished with a refrigerator, cooktop, microwave, coffee maker, wi-fi (internet), tv, and a rancho with grill. Each rancho, a.k.a. an indoor/outdoor lounge area, in addition to a grill, sports hammocks, an outdoor shower, and the opportunity to kick back, relax, and to let the spirit cleansing elixir of mountain living detox the soul. There is on-premises parking and an English-Spanish speaking property manager close by.
Occupancy: Bungalow #1 sleeps 4; bungalows #2 and #3 sleep 6 each. No pets are allowed. Cabanas are not wheelchair accessible.
What to do when not sleeping? No problem; there are many options. For the active there is hiking, walking, or jogging. For the more sedate there’s bird watching, ox-cart rides, or the museums, theaters (to include the National Theater), shops, and restaurants of San José close by. The ocean is a little over an hour’s journey.
Seclusion. Beauty. A sense that all is right with the world. Pura Vida. A Costa Rican retreat close to heaven.
