Pura Vida Lifestyle

One of the best parts about Costa Rica is the free and easy-going lifestyle. When you arrive in Costa Rica one of the first things you will hear from locals is the phrase “Pura Vida”! This translates to “Pure Life” in English but is a mantra and way of life for the people of Costa Rica. What tone of voice one uses when saying this phrase will determine what is being said, however the understanding that life is good is always understood! During your time here at Surf Synergy in Costa Rica leave your worries behind you, relax, and enjoy the beauty around you!

Animal Life

Costa Rica is home to hundreds of thousands of unique wildlife species. Some of the more common animals to keep an eye out for on your trip are iguanas, sloths, parrots, toucans, crocodiles, and monkeys. Howler Monkeys, Squirrel Monkeys, and White-Faced Capuchins are some of the most common monkey species to see hanging in the trees. If you go exploring, be on the lookout for bright colored poisonous snakes and frogs roaming around the forest floors. On the coasts, seeing dolphins and sea turtles is also quite common so keep your eyes peeled while you're in the water for ocean friends!
