Pura Vida Love
We are a Florida family of 3 with a fierce passion for Costa Rica!
In 2005, we wander-lusted a bit and chose Costa Rica as our first Latin American travel destination. We stayed 6 nights on our first trip: 1 in San Jose and 5 in Manuel Antonio. It ended up to be much more than a vacation. It was a life-changer for us. We fell in love with the people, the culture, the vibe, the scenery, the adventure, the beaches, the nature, the wildlife...the whole country.
We started planning our second trip the day we got home from our first. We have stayed at the bungalows every year since 2006, exploring every part of the country while keeping the bungalows as our home base. Dustin and I were married in Manuel Antonio in 2008 and brought our daughter Lily on her first trip to the bungalows in 2010 when she was just 14 months old. We've introduced most of our family and friends to Costa Rica, bringing them down and posing as tour guides.
On our 2016 trip, we decided to make our dream come true and purchase bungalow 19. After 11 years of saving and hard work, we're making our dream a reality and are so happy to share it with you.
Welcome to our piece of paradise in the corner of the world that is so very special to us! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
~Vanessa, Dustin, and Lily
