We stayed at the Pura Vida on our first night in Costa Rica after a long flight. The hotel provides free taxi service from the airport, and it was easy to navigate our way to the hotel. We had requested the late meal and expected some very simple snacks. But the chicken sandwiches were absolutely delicious and one of our favorite meals of the trip! We wish we could have tried one of Nhi’s gourmet dinners!! We stayed in the Katydid Casita and it was perfect for our family of 4. Spacious, roomy and well equipped. It was a Saturday night and there was a bit of road noise so we made use of the earplugs the hotel provides.
Breakfast was another delicious meal. As others have mentioned, there are 4 large dogs on the property, so that is something you should consider when booking a stay at the Pura Vida. It wasn’t an issue for us and we are happy that we were able to spend our first night in Costa Rica at this unique property with its beautiful grounds and accommodations.
