Our Philosophy

Travelin the Now

The "Pura Vida" Philosophy is in our heart!

Costa Rica's "Pura Vida" is a phrase which is used for everything, hi, bye, thank you, enjoy and much more. It's a philosophy deeply ingrained in the country's culture.Translated as "pure life," it's a way of approaching life with an unshakeable optimism, even in the face of challenges.

It embodies a spirit of gratitude for the natural beauty that envelops the land, from misty rainforests to pristine beaches. It's a nod to the warm-heartedness of the Costa Rican people, who extend their hospitality to visitors with open arms.

The essence of "Pura Vida" is woven into daily life, reminding everyone to appreciate the present moment and find joy in even the simplest of pleasures. It's a reminder to live authentically, to embrace life's ups and downs with a positive outlook.

On this journey, our goal is to fully embrace the Costa Rican vibe by "Travelin the now" and welcoming all its beauty with open arms and love.

About Elise, Your Tour Guide!

I'm Elise, a 29-year-old enthusiast from The Netherlands, and Costa Rica has stolen my heart. It's not just a destination for me; it's a magic place with beautiful souls, the pulsating beat of Pura Vida culture, the whispers of the jungle, and the untamed beauty of wildlife.

With a heart wide open and a spirit warmed by the tropical sun, I'm here to curate more than just a journey; it's an experience where every traveler becomes free and happy.

Relaxed and positive, that's how friends often describe me. Ensuring everyone feels at ease is my priority because, besides the thrill of adventure and the laughter that follows, I believe in forging genuine connections. It's about delving into the soul of the places we visit, immersing ourselves in the richness of local culture, learning profound lessons from the wonderful people we meet, and finding beauty in every corner of our breathtaking surroundings.

So, join me at Travelin the Now. Let's not just travel; let's create a symphony of memories that will play in our hearts for a lifetime."
