We make every effort to offer delicious, healthy, and creative meals with simple ingredients at Pura Vida. All of our meals are vegetarian by standard, but we offer many vegan and gluten-free options as well.

At this time, meals are only available during retreats and special events. We do NOT offer meals as part of our AirBNB program.  All meals are a set menu that are communicated with retreat guests in advance of their stay.

All meals are served during the time indicated on the agenda. Please be advised that if you miss a meal period you will be required to find your own meal. Due to our small facility and staff we do not have the ability to prepare meals at alternate times. If you will be arriving after the meal period on Friday evening, please make arrangements to grab dinner during your travels.

If you require vegan or gluten-free meal options, please remind us of your requirements upon arrival. We make every effort to keep our meals wholesome and hypoallergenic, but due to the increased number of food allergies present we are not always able to meet all requests. Please discuss with us prior to booking if you have concerns.
