I spent the last days of my winter break from school soaking up the warm vibes of Costa Rica. Pura Vida, a saying often used throughout the country, translates to "simple life" or "pure life," but a mere translation doesn't do the phrase justice. Pura Vida is a way of life. Like the word love—no matter how many great poets and visionaries have tried to describe it in their great works—Pura Vida must be felt. Here are some simple moments from my time on this rich coast that allowed me to experience the essence of these words in hopes that it may help you embrace Pura Vida in your own life.
How do you experience Pura Vida in your life?
