What is ‘Pura Vida!’ & what does it mean?

Posted by & filed under .

It means “pure life”; “good life”; “all is well”; “all should be well, life here is so good”; “of course life is good; “Good bye from Costa Rica”; “Hello/Hi!”…. lots of meanings. You’ll hear it as an answer to questions like: “How are you?”, “how’s life?”, “how’s work?” …. Costa Ricans are very proud of their country and the blend of being a developing country yet keeping much of the environment from urbanization or overdevelopment. Life here is
considered to be a very good life. This is uniquely a Costa Rican expression for the most part. ….Pura Vida!
