My husband and I visited 2 nights while visiting PR and Ivan and Jason made us feel at home. They were very hospitable and ran a great establishment. We were very impressed and can't wait to go back in December with friends. This place is a hidden gem!!!

We have enjoyed Pura Vida several times. The service is incredible. Ivan and Jason do a wonderful job making you feel welcome and appreciated. The food is great. They have a good selection from jambalaya to pasta to salmon. My family easily found an item on the menu that made their meal.

Great food, great service, great value. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Palmas del Mar and in Humacao. Very comfortable atmosphere and generous portions. The owners Ivan and Jason are very hospitable. Make sure you try Pura Vida if you are ever in the Palmas area.

My wife and I had an very enjoyable meal at this restaurant. We were walking in the area checking out restaurants when Ivan (the new owner) greeted us. He was very gracious. We decided to eat there after checking out other places. We could not have been happier. The food and the service were excellent. The prices were very reasonable... More
