PURA VIDA! Follow us on our offroad journey through Costa Rica - the land of volcanoes, jungles, and beaches. We explored the country for four weeks, driving a total of three thousand kilometers. We climbed Costa Rica's highest mountain Cerro Chirripó and explored the jungle of Corcovado. We enjoyed both sunshine and tropical rain on the Caribbean beaches and watched turtle hatchlings crawl towards the Pacific Ocean in Ostional. It was a memorable journey, and we cannot wait to explore again.

We traveled for 4 weeks in total.

When did you travel?
We visited Costa Rica in November, at the end of the rainy season.

By far one of the most amazing and complete traveling ride in Costa Rica I've seen lately. You guys did a great collection here with amazing footage of almost every corner of our little but warm and friendly Country, Happy to see you guys smiling and laughing while enjoy each site, that's the meaning of our Pura Vida style of living and collect unforgettable memories!!!

I almost never watch complete videos but his voice and quality of the videos made me stay from beginning to end, it's funny how he sounds like a National Geographic narrator saying that they got stuck and instead of going backwards he was driving forward jajajaja, I loved your adventure, Ana you are super lucky

Wow, been here 2 years and decently I'm glad you've seen more of my land that I know of it since moving back after 40 years. As good as this video is, You should come back and return.and work with me how to describe this horrendous economy.and way of life.

The Pura Vida does not exist for the citizen, the pura Vida saying is a tool of excuse to be Ignorant of many difficult issues in this gorgeous land that can't be Control the right way by this body Gov. Is why you don't see many of us enjoying life - like.most foreigners that come with a stronger healthier currency than our own 'colon' which we can't even afford 'many of us' 2 or 3 plates of food or buy food at an inflation rate nor visit the sites that you both were bless to visit.

Thanks I Will use this material in.My FB for exposure. Love the video!

What an amazing journey I'm from Costa Rica and you guys made know about places I had never gone before, I'd definitely try to visit them thanks to you, and I'd also like tell you from my perspective what "Pura vida" means to me, well basically means; feeling good, hello, bye bye, thank you, it can be used as a sarcasm to say "thank you for that" but basically "Pura vida" means the kind, blessed, thankful and friendly way to answer to a person, situation and most importantly to life, means joy, peace and happiness; so when you hear that word from a "tico" he's trying to welcome you the friendliest way possible, he's trying to make feel good and forget sad thing you know makes feel pura vida!

This was exceptionally well done! Really enjoyed your time lapse clips and the drone work. Just watched this from my rental cabina in the jungle above Dominical, in the Southern Pacific zone. I winter here (from BC Canada) for the past few years, but have been coming there since 1993. Love the Country, People and of course the beaches. Though it is not cheap these days. Your segments on beach clean up and going naked in the rain were my favorite. I routinely wash my 4 runner in the rain naked. Might have to try beach clean up naked too... Thank you for sharing your adventures! Pura Vida.
