Why "Pura Vida" and what does it mean?

Pura Vida. Pronounced POO-rah VEE-dah, in English means, "Pure Life".

However, these two words have much more meaning...

Pura Vida means that no matter what your current situation is, life for someone else can always be less fortunate than your own. It means living a peaceful, simple, uncluttered life with a deep appreciation for nature, family and friends. 

We are all here together and life is short...so start living a Pura Vida life!.
