Jardín Pura Vida, which translates as the Pure Life Garden, is a beautiful botanical garden set within 45 acres of tropical forest in Costa Rica. A delight to walk through, the garden is a nature lover’s paradise. Offering fantastic bird watching opportunities, you can observe toucans and scarlet macaws here, and many other exotic species.
