¡Pura Vida!

Sep 30, 2016, 09:37 AM by Clint Hawks
If you have been to Costa Rica, or if you are planning on going, 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 a way of life.

Costa Ricans (Ticos) 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. Ticos have a very relaxed, simple way of looking at life. No worries, no fuss, no stress-pura vida to them means being thankful for what they have and not dwelling on the negative.
