04 Dec Costa Rica is Pura Vida!
A common phrase you’ll hear in Costa Rica is “Pura Vida”. It literally translates as “pure life” but can be used in many different situations. It can be used a greeting or a farewell, or the saying can be used to express that “life is good” or “things are going well”. Contrarily it can also be used when things aren’t going so well, as if to say “that’s life” or “c’est la vie”.
