Imagine a country where people greet you saying: “Pura Vida!”—“Pure Life”—, while walking smilingly; a mountain like a green carpet where you can hear the sound of a crystal clear river and the song of the birds; where your eyes will be amazed with the colors of the flowers that sprout in the gardens and in the native forests; where your lungs will breathe pure air and you will see the water springin from the springs of the earth. Imagine a place where people trust in goodness and have the best willingness to assist you and help connect you to the beauty that dwells in you. We’ll be there!
