I was lucky enough to stay twice at Pura Vida Hotel during my stay in Costa Rica in February. My sister, brother-in-law, nephew and I stayed in the Mariposa Casita the first time. It is at the bottom of Bernie's lovely garden. On our last day in Costa Rica, Bernie upgraded us to the Toucan Casita (much appreciated).
On our first stay, we were able to book the dinner. Without a doubt it was one of the best gourmet dinner I have had in a long time. Not only delicious but also a beautiful presentation (as they do with the included breakfast). Our last night was Sunday and dinner wasn't served that night but Bernie recommended Jalapeno Central which proved to be a delicious choice (TexMex by a Columbian American from NYC!)
I enjoyed a tour of Bernie's Burnka mask collection. It is only a $4 - 5 minute taxi ride to the airport so it is perfect for a first day, last night stay in Costa Rica,
