5 packed days / 4 nights on the beach in eco-tourism nirvana
Pura Vida is the national slogan of Costa Rica. It literally translates into pure life, but it means so much more to the locals. It's all about enjoying nature, living life to the fullest, going on fun experiences, and hanging out with great friends. Pura Vida is the perfect way to describe this Fit Trip.

Our home on this trip will be just steps away from a picturesque silky smooth black sand beach and the powerful Pacific Ocean.
