Dennis, Gerardo, and Nelson (the Pure Life Development team) are great people and they go out of their way to make sure that one’s visit to Costa Rica will be fantastic. On our recent six week stay in the country, the Pure Life Development crew was there for us whenever we needed anything – be it directions, dining suggestions, or excursions around to various sites in Costa Rica. They were always either a phone call away or in their office in Atenas, ready and willing to help out.
Dennis is very personable, professional and very well-connected both in Atenas and around Costa Rica, even though he’s not a “native”. He speaks fluent Spanish and is able to handle any and all requests promptly and courteously. If he doesn’t have the answer, he will go the extra mile to find out the information for you. He suggested some wonderful resorts to us around Costa Rica and we had a wonderful time in each place. His recommendations were top notch and spot on!
Gerardo is your personal Costa Rican social director! He has tons of enthusiasm and energy and he is ready and willing to let you know that you are among friends when you are working with the Pure Life Development group. He always greets you with a smiling face and let’s you know that you’ll be well taken care of. As a native Costa Rican, Gerardo has the inside scoop on the best places for fine dining, nightlife or simply pure relaxation. Never fear, with Gerardo involved, you’re sure to have a good time in Costa Rica.
Nelson, a native Costa Rican, is your “go to guy” to get things done. He is friendly, organized and very professional. He keeps the Pure Life Development team running smoothly by orchestrating the behind the scenes daily life of the business. Nelson is always willing to lend a helping hand if you need directions or the inside scoop on how to get things done most efficiently in Costa Rica. He has a real zest for life and a heart-felt laugh and he knows where to send you so that you’ll have a memorable experience!
All said, our trip to Costa Rica was a fabulous experience and Dennis and his team made sure that everything from our lodging to meals and excursions were outstanding. My husband and I are already looking to return to Costa Rica this summer and we plan to use the Pure Life Development group as our one stop shop for all things Costa Rican!

After spending a month in an apartment in Heredia with weather too cool and rent too expensive, we contacted Pure Life Development via their website asking about rentals in Atenas, where we had heard the climate was “the best in the world.” Dennis Easters was a pleasure to deal with by e-mail and on the telephone and was quick to offer us a real estate tour of the area. He and his Tico partner Gerardo picked us up at the bus stop and took us to see a couple of properties, the second of which we loved. It was in our price range, had beautiful views of the ocean and was big enough for our needs. They had obviously listened to what we wanted.
Dennis and his colleagues Gerardo and Nelson were our first contact with Atenas and we immediately felt welcomed to the community by them. Indeed, we now consider them buenos amigos who reflect the friendliness of this lovely town. We’ve had only very positive experiences with them, including upon our return to Atenas in August when we needed another rental. They were patient and diligent in looking for the kind of home we wanted and have been honest and reliable in our dealings. Indeed, the fun, laughter and good spirits of our tours with these guys seem to exemplify all the best of Pura Vida. We have recommended Pure Life Development to several friends interested in living in Costa Rica and we do so here without reservation.

Dennis and Gerardo,
We wanted to write you a letter to express to Pure Life Development our forever gratitude for your help in making our dream come true with the purchase of our retirement home in Atenas. From the first day, we knew we had chosen the right realtors.
Our dream started about 10 years ago with our first visit to Costa Rica and the experience of “pura vida”. We were sold on the beautiful country and the beautiful people. The closer we grew to retirement the more concentrated we became on the locale. Like everyone, we first thought beachfront, surfing and fishing. But when a realtor in the coastal region suggested the Central Valley, and you guys in particular as the “go to guys” in Atenas, we soon forgot the beach and made the smart move to climate, privacy and proximity offered by Atenas to the airport, shopping, healthcare and the beach.
Suggesting to me to search the internet for any properties posted on any website and forwarding them to you and allowing you to check them out as to availability and meeting our criteria, eliminated a lot of wasted time looking at outdated websites with houses that had already been sold or just didn’t have our wants. After several months of research on both our parts, we were able to accumulate a VALID list of about 20 properties to consider. All meeting our criteria and geographically manageable in the week we allotted to look at the possibilities. You guys made it happen it 3 days!!! At the end of our week in Atenas, we had made an offer on a house and it was accepted. Also, you had made contact with a family who was moving and wanted to sell their household items. Before leaving, we had bought a house full of furniture and knew our way around town. We were set. WOW!!!
We closed 20 days later and you guys had our furniture moved and set up in our new home. Ready for our first visit a month later.
This had to have been the most exciting time of our life. We got to enjoy the excitement and you shared that excitement with us. You made it easy.
If anyone is considering Atenas and surrounding areas, they would be making a serious time consuming error in not contacting Pure Life Development. They are the truly the “Go To Guys”.

Pure Life Development, the Real Estate and Property Management Company owned and managed by Dennis Easters and Gerardo Gonzales, managed our property in Atenas, Costa Rica for three years. I can’t say enough about these guys. They are always available when you need them, they have a fantastic staff of workers, they are friendly and proactive and all our clients loved them, and nothing is ever too difficult for them to accomplish. If you are looking for a property in the Atenas area, use them as your realtors. If you need someone to manage the property you just bought, use them as your managers. They’re the best!
