It's A Way of Life.
Pura Vida is a way of life in Costa Rica, and JacoPops wants to show you how to live it.
The literal translation is “pure life,” or “simple life,” but it’s much more than that — it’s a culture. It’s about being laidback, carefree, and optimistic. It means being full of life, living for the moment, having gratitude. It’s about being thankful for what you have.
In Costa Rica, you can also use Pura Vida as a greeting and a farewell, which means that even hellos and goodbyes are all about “real living.”
