Questions & Answers
What is the meaning of "Pura Vida"?
Pura Vida means “pure life” or “simple life", however, it is more than just a saying - it is an emotion…it’s an attitude, it’s a happiness, and it’s a way of life! We were engaged on a trip to Costa Rica, where we learned the meaning of Pura Vida, and started our new life full of happiness. We have always had the dream of owning a beach house, and when we come here, we have a relaxed, simple way of looking at life and being thankful for what we have. We invite you to share Pura Vida with us – and when you come, please…no worries, no fuss, no stress. Relax and enjoy life at OBX! Pura vida!
