Costa Rica is a laid back country, full of friendly welcoming people that fully embrace the “Pura Vida”. Pura Vida meaning “pure life” is a happy feel-good expression used for everything from saying hello and goodbye, to telling people you’re having an awesome day. Locals embody this Pura Vida mentality and have woven it into their lives in a very real way. You can quickly see how this laid back philosophy has become a pivotal part of people living long, healthy and happy lives down here.
We'll be based at Encantada Ocean Cottages, a laid back boutique hotel located in the quiet beach town of Esterillos Este on the central pacific coast of Costa Rica. Expect a quaint tropical setting with villas and cottages scattered amongst palm trees and lush gardens just steps away from the captivating beaches of the pacific ocean.
Known for having the cleanest, most pristine beaches in the area, surfers flock to Este for its miles of uncrowded beach breaks. The beaches are quiet, picturesque and the perfect tropical setting to post-up and soak in some rays.
