¡Pura vida! The national motto translates to “pure life” or “simple life” and encapsulates Costa Ricans’ laid-back attitude and appreciation for simple things. Couple this refreshing outlook with pristine beaches, ethereal cloud forests, and rich biodiversity and you’ve landed in an enchanting place! There’s no shortage of outdoor adventures, while San José offers up city fare with museums, restaurants, and nightlife. This is an ideal place to learn Spanish, as Costa Ricans are known for their clear speech.
