The very second I set foot in Costa Rican for the first time I fell head over heels in love with the country’s natural beauty and focus on sustainability, the friendly ticos and especially the authentic cuisine.

Ever since, it’s been my mission to introduce the rest of the world to the best of Costa Rica. I started by leading  student tours from the United States to Costa Rica. That led to my spending time with amazing home cooks who took the time to teach me their favorite recipes- step by step. When my children were born, I began to source the best authentic Spanish literature for them.  

Today, I I am constantly working with Costa Rican small businesses to fill my store with the very best of Costa Rica- and your purchases here support Central American small businesses. From Costa Rica to your doorstep- I invite you to shop Pura Vida Moms.
