“If only there was one in San Jose!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

PVP is a gem for the taste buds with an abundance of knowledge and very personal service. Healthy eating has always been important for me so when my friend introduced me, I was delighted by the flavor packed dishes and also the wonderful energy Cassidy, Paul and their wonderful family have. (It has to be all those live enzymes they eat ;-) ) They have so much knowledge, I couldn't leave without buying her famous recipe book along with a bunch of goodies to go! You just feel 'high' when you leave!! Thank you guys - delightful!!!

“Your Body Will Thank You!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Pura Vida Pantry is officially my favorite restaurant in Costa Rica. Why? Healthy options, organic whole food, vegan options, vegetarian options, delicious food served so so fresh and made with passion.
The restaurant itself is delightful and the hosts Cassidy and Paul are very generous and caring about making tasty healthy options and food that makes you 'feel good'.
The juices are amazing and the daily specials rock. Visit them I am sure you will be happy that you did.
Located just before arriving at the cross roads in Herradura right off the highway on the left if coming from San Jose, look for the white sign. PS: The recipe book is full of great easy healthy dishes too.

“Put some Pura Vida in your belly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

We came across this unique little restaurant by surprise! We were very warmly greeted and after asking a few questions, were impressed with the knowledge and passion of the staff. We sampled a few freshly squeezed, organic juices and purchased a few vegan snacks. We returned the next day for lunch, which was absolutely amazing! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their products and a wealth of information about food and nutrition (and Jaco). This is a great place to stop for a morning snack, fresh squeezed juice or a light meal. The beet hummus and peanuts butter energy balls are fabulous! I would recommend this place to all my friends and family!
