This dining adventure was an awesome experience. The garden walk and beautiful views are well worth the travel time. David and Cindy, the host and hostess, are wonderful people and a delight to visit with. Thank you for making our special family vacation even more special!

Adventure dining was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Everyone in our group of 23 was delighted by the entire evening. Everything from the beautiful gardens to the dinner to the atmosphere to the host and hostess was top notch. The view was truly amazing. We were made to feel right at home. So glad that... More

We really enjoyed a great experience at Adventure Dining. The owners greeted our group of 20 and allowed us to walk their incredible gardens. We were offered several appetizers and all were delicious. Despite the humidity, the crackers were tasty and crisp. The rest of the meal was equally enjoyable and we learned a lot about Costa Rican culture from... More

We spend two months in Jaco every year and when friends come to visit we consider this the most special evening we can show them. We have been there many times and it never fails to wow us. The dining adventure begins at an hour that seems far too early for dinner but you will enjoy every minute starting with... More

For twelve years we've been bringing 15 family members, friends, pre-med students I'm mentoring, athletes I'm mentoring as we help the new CR lacrosse team, and their relationship partners for three weeks to Costa Rica. We travel all over the country and end up just south of Jaco for tours, relaxation and fellowship. We always spend our final evening at... More

We were looking for a special dining experience while in Costa Rica. Boy did we find it. We were picked up promptly at 4:00 by a driver and chauffeured to a spectacular botanical garden (Pura Vida). David greeted us warmly and we were instructed to enjoy the gardens before heading a short distance to the restaurant. Upon arriving at the... More

There is a great trend in restaurants now which offer so much more than a table with food on it. This place goes leaps and bounds beyond that. The magical beauty of the gardens, the view, the private service and very important...the open bar! Transportation was included in the rate, drinks, and dinner. All in all a decent value for... More

We didn't really know what we were getting when I made reservations for New Year's Eve. My only regret is that I didn't have enough time to spend enjoying the gardens. We were picked up for dinner at 3:30 in a minivan, and had about a 40 minute drive up the side of a mountain. When we arrived, I was... More

Eating dinner with David & Cindy is like sharing a dinner with old friends. You feel welcome from the beginning of your visit to Pura Vida Gardens. The location is beautiful, flowers & beautiful views everywhere provide a dramatic setting for dinner. The 3 course dinner was delicious. There was a serve yourself bar, appetizers and a lovely locally sourced... More
