Beautiful & very private 'eco-luxury' retreat near South Pacific Coast. Our unique & stunning location offers guests panoramic sea views & hangs dramatically over the jungle canopy. Romantic getaway, nature lovers and adrenalin junkies paradise!
The main 'House Rules' are to really adopt the 'Pura Vida' philosophy & concept we have worked so hard to create. That means respecting nature, the animals and the magical surroundings of the Jungle Villa and it's reserve. Our main goal is that you are able to leave the 'urban madness' behind and fully enjoy & embrace a unique life at Pura Vida Ecolodge throughout your stay, whether it be just two days or two weeks, always conscious that our Jungle Villa really is 'A Retreat - A Lifestyle & An Experience.'
- No smoking inside of the house
- Don't feed the pizotes, monkeys or other visiting animals
- Enjoy wildlife, don't be afraid of insects, it's a Jungle Villa!
- Use the Safe for your valuables and electronics
- Don't throw paper or other products in the toilets but use the bins provided
- Lock the windows & doors and turn off AC, lights & fans when you leave the ecolodge.
Both double bedrooms can be set up as either Kings or indeed separate twins, according to your particular needs and group size. In the Ocean view Suite (upstairs) there is also a pull-out single bed. Both suites offer guests maximum comfort as all our COCO-MAT mattresses are made of 100% organic materials and are of very high quality. We also offer guests the COCO-MAT pillow menu. There is also a sofa bed that can sleep a further two people comfortably - with a maximum for the entire Jungle Villa being limited to 7 adults.
We appreciate that life on the Pacific coast can start early so ask guests to try and checkout by 10am. Check-in starts from 2pm and guests are strongly advised to arrive by daylight on the first day so as to familarize themselves with the route up to the lodge.
Our lifetime friend and housekeeper Gersan (and his wife Iliana) offer guests the Pura Vida Boat Adventure tour themselves and where possible, we are happy to help and advise other tours & excursions in the area. Gersan & Iliana also offer a laundry service and can pick up (and drop off) various food parcels as well as even preparing home-cooked local dishes for your arrival day if arranged plenty in advance.

After many years dreaming and many months conceptualizing this little retreat, my wife and I moved from Europe to Costa Rica for the best part of a year to make this dream a reality. During this time we met some very special people and made a lot of wonderful memories as we embarked on what soon became an experience of a lifetime. The end result is that we opened the doors of our little 'piece of paradise' back in November 2012 and we welcome you to experience a really special vacation and adventure up at Pura Vida Ecolodge. We have created a unique 'eco-luxury' retreat nestled amongst virgin rain forest just 5 km from the volcanic sands of the Pacific Ocean in Central America's Costa Rica. Our beautiful and breezy location, at an altitude of just over 300 meters, boasts stunning panoramic views over the lush valleys towards the meandering 'Rio Terraba' and directly faces the Pacific Ocean and Costa Rica's spectacular sunsets. Pura Vida Ecolodge is a peaceful sanctuary to experience and embrace 'Pura Vida' (Pure Life), a destination where guests can enjoy not only a memorable holiday, but tranquility, adventure and equilibrium in a utopia second to none. Our 'Eco-Chic' retreat is your chance to relax and truly let go, to welcome an organic, integral experience for contemplation, rejuvenation and nurturing among friends, family and loved ones.
