pura vida- n. pure life; full of life; real living
vibe – n. the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others.

Swinging in my hammock, I come up with the best ideas for our new blog: narratives on characters in our little Costa Rican village, amazing client stories, my love for Costa Rica–the beauty, the culture, and the pace of life–my absolute passion and love for the sport of surfing, how yoga keeps me centered in times of turmoil, and the list goes on… Stories, upon stories brew in my brain, but I never put them to ink.
I am what you call a “lazy entrepreneur.” I prefer surfing, chatting, laying in the hammock, and hanging out on the beach to writing. I knew these stories needed an outlet, but I needed someone to tell them FOR me.
Enter Josie Green, our new surf camp manager and blog writer. When we hired her, I thought to myself, “she will be the one to get this blog going.” It also dawned on me that one of our surf instructors, Helen Bowditch, used to write for the BBC (we have such great talent at Pura Vida Adventures–it blows me away!). Okay, you can say I’m little daft, but eventually I came around!
So we crafted this blog with you in mind. We’re not just here to tell you all about us, how much fun our retreats are, and why you should come. But rather, we hope our words inspire and lend another perspective, when the daily bump-and-grind gets too hectic. We’d like you to kick back in your hammock too, even if it’s an imaginary one, and take a glimpse into our crazy Pura Vida world.
Please give us your feedback in the comment box below or contact us. What’s your story? What you would like to hear? We’d love to gain inspiration from you.
Now back to hammock time! I’m exhausted.
