Pura Vida literally means “pure life”, but the meaning is closer to “full of life”, “purified life”, “this is living!”, “going great”, or “cool!” It can be used both as a greeting and a farewell, to express satisfaction, or to politely express indifference when describing something...many Latinos use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community, perseverance, resilience in overcoming difficulties with good spirits, enjoying life slowly, and celebrating good fortune of magnitudes small and large alike.

Casa Pura Vida is a charming apartment located in the quaintest area in Zihuatanejo, the Playa Madera district, between the famous La Ropa beach & El Centro.

It is located in a gated condominium complex close to the beaches, restaurants and the central shopping & nightlife areas. Top rated restaurants are just around the corner on Calle Adelita - dubbed “gourmet alley” by the locals.

Playa Madera is a short two minute walk away, La Ropa beach is an 8-10 minutes walk. The town center, a short 8-10 minute stroll away, has a bustling, vibrant central food, farmers & artisans market with many local restaurants.

The town beach has a fishermens’ market and is fringed with even more restaurants. There is a central square or “zocalo” which hosts many local activities.

The complex has a unique look with modern Mexican architectural influences utilizing tropical hardwoods, river stone accents and polished concrete. Lush gardens surround two pools. Decorated in a traditional Spanish-Mexican style with all the comforts for an unforgettable vacation. Just two blocks from La Madera beach and downtown. Very close to the stores, restaurants and all the fun!!
