Mani and Sindy, Owners of the Pura Vida House Offering Luxury Costa Rica Vacations

Mani has been traveling to Guanacaste, Costa Rica for the past 7 years. He fell in love with the natural beauty, white sand beaches and wonderful people here. He was born in Washington, DC and has spent all his life in the DC area.

He has played tennis and other sports most of his life and has been running a successful tennis/pickleball business for 10 years in Virginia. Mani is also an avid golfer and has a zest for life and loves meeting and getting to know new people.

Sindy was born in Caracas, Venezuela, living 14 years in Colombia where she graduated as a journalist and worked as a marketing & executive manager in a boutique hotel. Five years ago, she moved to the US where she meet Mani and the rest is history! :-)

Sindy fell in love with Mani’s contagious passion for life (and tennis!). And Mani fell for Sindy’s bubbly positive and energetic personality, and joy of life that embodies the spirit of “pura vida or life is good” that Costa Rica is also known for.

We shared the same dream of living by a tropical beach and Pura Vida House gives us the joy of living our biggest passions–sports, nature, new experiences and meeting wonderful people. Our award-winning and beautiful villa The Pura Vida House is in a great luxury location, steps away from beaches, golf, surfing and more. We’d be honored to host you and show you a great time in Costa Rica. We can give you as much or as little space as you need.

Live life fully, joyfully, gratefully, PURA VIDA! :-)
