Pura Vida Help Desk


The Pura Vida Help Desk assists foreign nationals and legal entities in resolving situations or challenges in Costa Rica that fall outside their usual areas of expertise. Living and working in a foreign country with a different language and culture can be exhausting and difficult even in the best of times. It can become downright frustrating and costly when things do not go as hoped or planned. We are not specialists, but generalists, meaning we know something about many areas of expertise rather than a lot about one specific area or as my father would have said, "jack of all trades, master of none'. Of course, we interact with specialists (lawyers, accountants, bankers, architects, engineers, builders, artists, technicians, managers, etc.) as required. However, we are often the first to identify the real issues due to our varied experiences over the past 40 years, during which we have lived and worked in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and Argentina.
