Comments The Pura Vida Beach and Dive Resort, combined with their Sea Explorers dive operation is one of the best dive resorts I've visited.

The resort itself is beautiful and the cottage we had (Dolphin Family Room) was spacious, clean, and well designed. We had four family members in a cottage that had a half-wall between one room with a double bed and the other room with two single beds. The bathroom could be accessed by either room. Beds were comfortable, AC and hot water worked great, and there was a mini-fridge and a safe. Our front porch had chairs and a rack for drying clothes.
