Our Family in Costa Rica
Hola & Welcome to our beautiful home in the Tropics!
We are so excited you are considering Pura Vida Casas for your next vacation!
Since our very first Surf Trip trip to Costa Rica in 2005, we fell in love with not only the waves but the scenic beauty and tranquility of Costa Rica. We loved our vacation so much, we decided to build our own vacation home there. One home was just not enough, so we built three more! Now all of our family and friends can enjoy the beauties of all of our Costa Rica Vacation Homes. We extend that welcome to you, our new Costa Rica friends!
The homes were built and designed by George and Katrina Murdoch. They are managed by their son Daniel and his wife Chloe.
The Murdoch Family has spent the past 10 years investing both time and love into the local community which has allowed them to get to know the local area, activities, people and culture very well. They use that compiled knowledge to provide you the best Costa Rica Vacation Possible!
