If you have been to Costa Rica, or if you are planning a Costa Rica vacation, one term you should be familiar with is “Pura Vida” (pronounces poo-rah vee-dah). Simply translated, it means “simple life” or “pure life”, but in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is truly their way of life. Our Pura Vida Yoga Retreat Costa Rica is just what so many of us need to attain that perfect getaway.
The Costa Ricans (Ticos) often use this term to say hello, to say goodbye, to say everything’s great, to say everything’s cool. However, it is not the words that reflect the true meaning of ¡Pura Vida!. Pura Vida is the way Ticos live. Not surprisingly, Costa Rica is widely known as one of the happiest places to visit in the world. If you’re wondering why or how this is then you must understand that Costa Ricans don’t live a stressful way of life.The Ticos have a way of simplistically looking at life.They avoid unnecessary worry and stress or fuss. For them, pura vida is being thankful for what they have and not focusing life’s negative aspects.
And even though so many people use the saying ‘pura vida’, until you’ve been to Costa Rica, you can never really know what pura vida feels like. It comes from deep inside of you, it’s a way of thinking, it’s a happy and easy going attitude, it is truly a way of life. Once you’ve visited, you will understand the true meaning of pura vida.
