The evening was our last-night celebration for my partner's 40th birthday trip with 8 of us. First off, we were supposed to be picked up by... More

The owners, David and Cindy go to great lengths to make your visit memorable. It's best to get there a little early to have time to tour the Pura Vida Gardens. You will not be disappointed. Very beautiful. Then stroll to the restaurant deck, and make your favorite cocktail from the open bar. Then enjoy the view of the tallest... More
