Pura Vida Fully Embodied

Destiny. Luck. A mystical intervention. Any way you choose to define that initial moment of recognition, one thing remains unaltered: a chord was struck deep within us when we discovered Costa Rica.

We planted our roots here and fully embodied the spirit of Pura Vida. It was a time of inspiration, the moment to breathe life into our hospitality vision and unveil Casa Chameleon Hotels – an intimate vacation as it should be.
