Want to live la pura vida?
It’s a saying you won’t get tired of hearing from the Ticos (Costa Rican locals). “How are you?” you ask, and one might respond, “pura vida!” It directly translates to “pure life,” but it means so much more to the Costa Ricans who use it. If you have a soft spot for friendly locals, delicious coffee and Spanish-colonial architecture, teaching English in Costa Rica will be perfect for you. With year-round tropical temperatures, rain forests, waterfalls and wildlife galore, it’s no surprise Costa Rica has long been a vacation destination for the beach bum and the nature lover alike.
