The meaning "Pura vida"
Pura vida, a characteristic Costa Rican phrase,
literally means pure life, with connotations that suggest translations such as "full of life", "this is living!",
"going great", or "real living".
In modern-day usage, the saying goes beyond its simple translation: it's a way of life.
It is a perspective to life that evokes a spirit that is carefree, laid back and optimistic.
