Experience what Costa Ricans call ¡Pura Vida!
Yoga, surf & chill
Join us for 6 days of the good life in paradise.
Escape to paradise and discover what it means to live the PURE LIFE. On this journey you will connect to nature and take things as slow as you like, because after all, everything here is Perfect.
Pura Vida implies the existence of a permanent state of mind in which satisfaction with all that we have, who we are, where we are, why we are and how we are is perfectly balanced like a perfectly tuned guitar. Satisfaction is a term we like to use when we’ve had enough indulgence of anything in our life and this concept is an idea that as a society we’ve lost touch with. In the modern world, satisfaction is a big fake carrot hanging from a stick above us that keeps us always gunning for something we cannot ever reach.
Costa Rica has sun, abundant natural beauty, coconuts, monkeys, no army, a great medical and educational system, delicious tropical foods, mind boggling beaches, a culture of respect and the best ingredient of all — Costa Ricans (they are sweeter than fried bananas). Costa Rica is not the richest or the most productive, but it’s one of the happiest countries in the world. This is not because Costa Ricans have everything they need to be happy, but because they FEEL they have enough to be happy (from thedreamcatchers.com).
We can’t wait to see you here!
