Puerta a la Vida is a 65-acre community & retreat center situated on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast near the quiet seaside town of Miramar.
Our one-of-a-kind, ecologically friendly community is thoughtfully designed to provide a new paradigm in Living. Every detail—from extended services and eco-conscious building practice to an onsite spa, wellness center and organic restaurant—will be meticulously addressed to create a completely worry-free and healthy lifestyle. Social experiences, filled with workshops, lectures, musical performances, special events and adventures, will be among the offerings designed to provide an active lifestyle. The synergy of so many important elements under one roof, combined with a breathtaking setting, is a concept we call “Intelligent Living.”
Rising 300 meters above sea level on the famous Gran Mirador plateau, the development is one hour from San Jose via the newly built highway. The high altitude affords some of the nicest ocean views in the area, cool breezes and low humidity. Located in the country’s Montes de Oro Central Pacific region, the development is situated on the rolling mountains overlooking the Gulf of Nicoya. It is located in close proximity to a wide array of popular destinations and eco-adventure attractions, including some of the top beaches in the country. Just a 10-minute drive from the yacht club – allows for easy access to the secluded white sand islands of the Gulf of Nicoya where our beach club will be nestled.

We developed a very specific set of criteria for finding the best location and property to support our vision of Intelligent Living. After traveling the world, Costa Rica stood out as the optimal choice...
We began to canvass the country by helicopter, boat, car, and even horseback in our search for a prime location for our project. It was while flying over the Gulf of Nicoya that we uncovered an area near known as the Montes de Oro and the picturesque town of Miramar
This tranquil and pristine seaside town is just minutes from the Pan-American Highway and one hour from the capitol of San Jose.
Long admired for its natural beauty and ideal location, Miramar has all of the key requirements for great living: good schools, safety, a medical clinic and national hospital in close proximity, a vibrant local community, and well developed infrastructure, including access to water, electricity and internet.
