We were so happy to find Pura Vida at Las Catalina. The bikes were the real deal and well kept. The trails high above the ocean are a tail single track. Highly recommended for those who are into mtb.

Great selection of merchandise as well. We rented a kayak and mountain bikes. Lots of great beaches to kayak to and islands. The bike trails are amazing! It was my first time... More

Rented mountain bikes (Scott, newish, excellent condition) and explored the surrounding trail network for hours. Swapped the bikes for boogie boards to cool off. Turned in the boards and walked out with Hawaiian ices and a booking for surf lessons at Playa Grande from Suzan. The friendly team at Pura Vida Ride are a fantastic resource for anyone looking to...

Pura Vida ride was an amazing experience, they are very helpful and have large selection of excellent mountain bikes. The trail system is out of this world, with scenery to die for and challenging flowing trail system, I have mountain biked all over the world and this place is one of my favorites will surly be back.

If you are looking for a top notch shop, staff and gear, this is the place! Rented a full suspension Trek Fuel EX 5 from them and then proceeded to ride right from the shop with Estevan on a 17+ mile mtn bike ride on their very fun float singletrack. Sampling some of the best they had. Absolute blast and... More

After a bit of a Costa Rica typical crazy drive, we arrived at a top notch shop to find great bikes and great advise. We headed out into the heat of the day to loop the well maintained and well marked trails. Easy flowy trails took us from one great view to the next. We even saw a monobo (gorgeous... More

We stayed in Casa Brewer in Las Catalinas over Spring Break 2017 (last week of March.) Pura Vida Ride served as our perfect go-to for everything our three-family-stay needed - mountain bikes, paddle boards, boogie boards, canoes, beach chairs, swim gear, sun protection, ice cream, espresso, refreshments, etc. Staff was super attentive and friendly. Prices were super fair. Our stay... More
