'Pura Vida' means 'pure life'- but in Costa Rica it's more than just a greeting, it's a way of life, which evokes a spirit that is carefree, laid back and optimistic, embracing life, living in harmony with nature and with each other.

With our new 'Pura-Vida Spice! range of organic spices, we invite you to experience the pure taste of the caribbean way of life. We will take you on an exciting journey into the tropical rainforest, through vibrant colourful fishing villages, onto vibrating dancefloors of calypso-infused dancers – and straight into the hearts of the happiest people in the world.

These specially selected recipes stem from local kitchens, Bars and restaurants of Costa Rica. They tell a story of the origins of these happy people, of their deep roots and the source of their happiness.
