Pura Vida = Good Life


What can be better than endless food, drink and relaxation? Experience an "all inclusive" resort and you will find out how to be pampered with the best! We traveled to beautiful Costa Rica to relax and kick back at the regal Riu Palace Resort. Eight nights and nine days of sunshine, relaxation and fun times was the result. We love the Costa Rica "Pura Vida" slogan for sure. Life in Costa Rica is a such a "good life" that we didn't want to come home!
