Costa Rica

Chapter 1

Pura Vida!

In Costa Rica, the most commonly used phrase is “pura vida”, which literally means “pure life.” The saying actually goes beyond its simple translation. It ia a way of life. It symbolizes the idea of simply enjoying life and being happy. As the Urban Dictionary states, it’s a synonym of “hakuna matata” and reflects the relaxed lifestyle of Costa Ricans.

The ticos, as they call themselves are relaxed too! Life in the country is much slower than in the U.S. or Europe, so do not be in a hurry to do anything.
