About Us

our pura vida lifestyle

livin' for the present moment

From the creator

Created En Costa was established in 2016 in Mal País, Costa Rica. The first ideas for this brand were born many years earlier and were later influenced by traveling to places like Hawaii and California. Knowing these three beautiful places helped me to get inspired to design something different than what people were used to seeing in stores here — something modern and unique but also simple and infused with the Pura Vida meaning and lifestyle.

I want to thank everyone who has supported this brand and helped it become what it is today. To those who were around when this was only an idea, everyone who has ever bought a t-shirt or a hat, the ones who put our stickers on their vehicles, surfboards and laptops, those who help behind the scenes with photos and designs, and the ones who just follow along on social media, thank you for being part of the Created En Costa family. ¡Pura Vida!
