We are inn-keepers/owners of a B & B in Albuquerque, NM and as a result tend to be more observant and perhaps more critical than the average guest. We were pleased with the ambiance, courtesy and convenience of Pura Vida. It is a lovely, small hotel with absolutely beautiful grounds. Berni was most helpful with directions, suggestions about day trips and super local knowledge advice. We had planned a two night stay but after arriving decided to spend 6 of our 7 nights in Costa Rica at Pura Vida. Our last night we were treated to a dinner that was truly exceptional; prepared by Nhi and served by Berni. What a wonderful finish! We are awaiting a recipe from Nhi that we would like to serve at our B & B; a delectable banana/cocoanut bread that is a true treat. We are happy to give Pura Vida and the inn-keepers a great review.
