VIVAFlorblanca | A New Look


Welcome to the new home and new look of VIVAFlorblanca! We’re so excited to bring you stories from Florblanca, from our people, and from our guests.

For so many of our guests, Florblanca is a beacon of rustic luxury where the Pura Vida life is ever-present. Artists, surfers, designers, chefs, couples, families, and adventurous, creative people from around the globe visit us to connect with the life we live here, so tied to nature, to our environment, and to our people.

The Florblanca lifestyle is strongly rooted in nature and in our community. We live among the playful howler monkeys, nosy iguanas, colorful birds and wild ocean creatures that populate our jungles and beaches. We live among family and people whom we make our family. We work hands-on, physical jobs with a strong sense of purpose for contributing to the greater community.

It is no surprise to us why our home in the Nicoya Peninsula has been identified as one of a handful of Blue Zones around the world where people are known to live longer lives. We live an unplugged, unhurried life where a great deal of our time is spent outdoors. We eat fresh, local food and we dine with our family and neighbors. We soak up the sun and we welcome the green season.

People visit Florblanca from all over the world to reconnect with these values. 

With VIVAFlorblanca, we want to reach you at home to inspire this lifestyle everyday. We want you to meet our guests and find out what inspires them. Meet our staff and hear their stories. Try our recipes for healthy and nourishing food.  And see how our global community comes together to connect, share, explore, and discover.

We are thrilled to share VIVAFlorblanca with you wherever you are in your travels, at home, or at work. Let us know what interests you and what topics you want to see here. Stay connected, stay enlightened, stay inspired.
