Pura vida in Spanish means pure life. It became our mantra and our intention. Aligning our way of living with what we see is true, so the conscious spirit can thrive and live it’s full potential. Pura Vida is a non-denominational, spiritual, health-focused eco-retreat center in a tropical paradise in Mexico. Our beautiful accommodations are right by the ocean, for those seeking connection with nature and themselves.

Our peaceful, secluded ocean front resort is located in Yelapa, Mexico, a small bay within Puerto Vallarta Bay, accessible only by boat. It’s only 2 hour direct flight from Los Angeles or 3 hour flight from San Francisco. We have been successfully supporting thousands of people over last 15 years by integrating many modalities in our Holistic Healing and Personal Transformation programs.
