About Pura Vida Spa and Yoga Retreat
Pura Vida, meaning “pure life,” is located on a private, eight-acre mountainside estate in Costa Rica’s Alajuela province, 45 minutes from downtown San Jose. Best known for its comprehensive yoga program, the wellbeing retreat maintains a strict focus on healing and spiritual growth. An on-site spa stays consistent with the property’s peaceful, restorative environment; minimally decorated with white walls, a clean, neutral palette, and warm wood details, the facility features inspiring treatments and organic products crafted with ingredients grown on the retreat’s grounds or in the surrounding region. The collection of holistic therapies is vast, varying from Ayurvedic and Asian to clinical bodywork and bio energetic healing. Meals consist of mainly gourmet vegetarian fare, and mind, body, and spirit harmonization is enhanced by Costa Rica’s spectacular natural surroundings.
