PURA VIDA LIVING

 JOURNEY

 

I guess the story really starts way back in 2012 when we first moved to Costa Rica for the year to project manage and build Pura Vida Ecolodge, a small eco-luxury retreat on the South Pacific coast of this tiny but ever popular and almost carbon neutral country in the middle of Central America.

 

From the very beginning, we wanted our little retreat to have as little an impact on the stunningly lush and green surroundings as possible, not only in its green design and use of bamboo and other locally sourced sustainable materials but also once built, we were keen to take it one step further and provide guests with a  Pura Vida ‘Experience & Lifestyle’ that they could enjoy and embrace while up at the lodge.

 

We started to think about what special touches we could include in our Jungle villa as we developed lifelong partnerships with similarly eco-conscious brands and suppliers from the ever-growing green tribe, knowing that everything had to be zero waste and zero KM wherever possible, sustainably made and of course fitting in with our ethos of zero impact, very much at the heart of all things up at Pura Vida Ecolodge. Seven years on, while our little jungle escape is booking out months in advance, the entire lodge is kitted out from head to toe with a plethora of green eco-luxury day-to-day touches and unique sustainable products that our guests use and enjoy throughout their vacation and escape from the urban madness. Somewhat inevitably, our guests started to crave to take a little piece of this ‘Pura Vida Living’ back home with them, as we were asked time and time again where they can buy a piece of the Pura Vida… Alas, in the haze of summer 2019, PURA VIDA LIVING was born…
