The gardens are beautiful and the day I was there, the scarlet macaws were showing off! While I had no problem walking the paths, they were too difficult (steep) for many of the older people who had been told this was an easy walk. I also enjoyed their gift shop with local crafts and the refreshments that were served. The... 更多
Visited here as part of a cruise ship excursion. Amazing to see plants (that back home need to be grown indoors) growing to full size out in the open. Anything and everything seems to be growing here. As well as the plant life there were many birds to see including hummingbirds, toucans and macaws. The waterfall wasn't particularly spectacular, however... 更多
During a cruise my husband and I booked a tour that included a stop at Pura Vida Gardens. We had a great time, the views were spectacular, the plants georgeous, and the birds were awesome. Our tour included lunch, which was delicious! I highly recommend visiting these gardens if you are traveling to Costa Rica. Beautiful, we'll run and the... 更多

My husband and I visited Puravida in March 2015. The temperature was well over 30 degrees and very humid. This is the dry season. We were met by the owner of this conservation rainforest and gardens, who welcomed us. Our tour guide made our walk very interesting indeed. Recommend suitable walking shoes, light clothing, insect repellant, sun cream, sun hat... 更多

The gardens themselves have a wonderful diversity of plants, all beautifully maintained. In such a climate plants grow do quickly so it is a tribute to the small... 更多
This was an awesome place, off the beaten path, and great for birders. We saw more than 15 Macaw pairs, a Toucan and various other birds while we were there. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was very good. it was well worth the drive up the gravel road, you won't be sorry.
A beautiful paradise located on a mountain-top near Jaco. Tough to find but well worth the trip. I hope the owners read this review - you definitely need better signage to guide people into your attraction. It is located on the top of a mountain up a dirt road. You can't believe what a paradise is hidden at the top... 更多
