"Pura Vida" (= pure life) is the greeting that welcomes visitors to Costa Rica. As our guest, you'll enjoy the "pure life" as well, with views of the rainforest, the sound of waves at night, and the singing of birds at sunrise. We are friendly hosts who take the art of hospitality seriously. We always put forth our best effort to make sure that you are comfortable, relaxed, and enjoying yourself.

The Hotel Pura Vida is in a quiet location on the edge of Puerto Viejo. It is only a short jaunt to both the beaches and the center of town. We have ten large, light-filled and airy rooms, some with private baths and some with shared facilities. An earth-friendly solar heater warms our shower water, and all of the rooms have sinks, reading lights, mosquito nets, and fans. Fresh towels, sheets, and daily room cleaning are, of course, part of our regular service.

You will wake up to the scent of freshly made coffee, and begin your day with a delicious breakfast on our patio. We also offer drinks and small meals throughout the day. Relax in comfortable chairs and hammocks surrounded by our tropical gardens.
