Pura Vida: Living a Pure Life

My recent trip to Tamarindo, CR made me think about the meaning of the phrase Pura Vida, which is unique to Costa Rica. Pura Vida is translated to mean “pure life” and is originally from a Mexican film “Pura Vida!” released in 1956. Pura Vida can be used as a greeting, a goodbye, or even as a response to the question “How are you?” It is an affirmation for living a good life, a sweet life, that is full of happiness and simplicity. Watch my vlog for more about the richness of life that I experienced during my recent trip.
