TAKE LIFE DOWN A NOTCH AND SETTLE INTO THE "PURA VIDA" LIFESTYLE OF RURAL COSTA RICA! "Pura Vida", means "pure life" or "life is good" and Costa Ricans use it for everything. With a mantra like this it's no wonder Costa Rica ranks as the happiest country on the planet. Discover a uniquely tropical area, La Fortuna, and focus on wellness and what that means here. Learn about the Costa Rican lifestyle that keeps people mentally positive and physically healthy. Visit the Guanacaste region on the Pacific coast, one of the world's only Blue Zones, where people live exceptionally long and healthy lives. This program is directed by the fabulous Maria Molina, who ran the Spanish immersion programs from 2007 to 2018 in Atenas. Maria and her husband live in La Fortuna and run a cattle ranch and dairy farm. They are very involved in ecotourism, health, and wellness projects. The couple manage the Bogarin Trail, which grew out of land set aside on the ranch 20 years ago and now teems with endemic flora and fauna.
