See Costa Rica’s Unique Wildlife

Part of the magic of Pura Vida House is the immersive biodiversity that will surround you throughout your stay. Don’t be surprised at the sound of howler monkeys lounging in canopies, iguanas and anteaters trekking our grounds, or the dozens of colorful birds flying overhead.

And that’s just on our private estate! If you’re a true adventurer, we can guide you to some of our favorite wildlife lookouts where you can sightsee Costa Rica’s most unique animals. Imagine American crocodiles as large as 25-30 feet basking in the sun, sea turtles sunning on the beach, humpback whales surfacing just off the coast, and colorful toucans and parrots in the trees above. If you’re really lucky, you may even catch a rare sighting of a puma or margay!

World-Famous Beaches in Walking Distance of our Luxury Retreats

One of the best aspects of staying at Pura Vida House is that we are located in the heart of Hacienda Pinilla Resort, a 4,600-acre paradise on Earth!

Two of our favorite Tamarindo beaches (and a must-see for any traveler) are just minutes away from your estate.

Langosta Beach

Known for its beautiful white sand and long stretches of uninterrupted coastline. It’s perfect for sunset walks and sea-shelling. But perhaps the most beautiful thing to enjoy is the crystal clear waters. You can literally walk 100 feet into the surf and still see your feet!

Avellanas Beach

Not only is this beach just as naturally stunning as Langosta Beach, but it’s also a hot spot for watersports. Relax at the famous Lola’s Beach Bar & Restaurant while watching surfers ride incredible breaks. And at sunset, join some of the impromptu pick-up soccer games with the locals.

Luxury Amenities at the Pura Vida House

When staying at Pura Vida House, you’ll also have access to:

We’re also the only resort to provide free, unlimited access to the Beach Club at Hacienda Pinilla, which is valued at $280 per person.
