While venturing to the local restaurants during the week was fun and almost as delicious; we are so glad we had Pura Vida catering to provide us with our first and last meals in Costa Rica! July 3, Garrett and Marcela made us an amazing Costa Rican gourmet dinner during our stay in our lovely villa. We enjoyed the evening and being able to learn more about Costa Rica from Garrett and Marcela. Each course was explained and using the freshest local ingredients.
It was a true treat to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy such an amazing meal. I would highly recommend them for your catering needs! June 21, I contacted Garrett to cook for our family group, 13 adults and 3 children. We went back and forth on email several times and Garrett was always responsive with great options. The meal was simply marvelous. Garrett and Marcela really out did themselves. The Patacones melted in your mouth. The Mahi-mahi was tender and juicy. And the Chocolate Volcano Cake with Vanilla ice cream was to die for. Garrett and Marcela were fun and answered questions regarding the preparation and cooking of the meal.
Finally, considering the ease and joy of eating in a beautiful vacation home and not having to cook or clean up, Pura Vida Catering is The way to go. Thanks Garrett and Marcela! June 12, Garrett prepared 3 separate dinners for our group of 7 during our stay in Costa Rica. Every meal was outstanding! Although we chose our meals in advance, he surprised and delighted us with his originality and delicious flavors for all 3 meals. Having him and Marcela prepare our meals was one of the highlights of our trip. They brought everything, cooked everything, set the table beautifully, and cleaned up so there was nothing for us to do except enjoy our fabulous view and relax.

Garrett and Marcela kept out of our way during the meal prep process, but if we went to talk to them, they were a delight to have around, interesting to talk to about culinary options in Costa Rica, and also offered advise on local restaurants and attractions. When planning our trip, we split the various dinners amongst a couple different chefs, but Garrett was by far the best. When we go back, we will only use Garrett for all nights.
It was like eating in a 5 Star restaurant but in the comfort of your home. April 18, Garrett and Marcela made us a wonderful Pacific Rim Feast that was delicious, healthy, and locally sourced.

And served in the best location ever, our own home. Treat you and your guests right and hire them to cater your next evening in or event! March 31, Garrett and Marcela have fine tuned their catering service to make the most enjoyable meals you will experience in Costa Rica. We group of 4 adults and 2 teenagers used Pura Vida Catering for 2 dinners prepared at our rental house.
Being lovers of all foods, we chose the Hawaiian and French menus. Garrett is super friendly and passionate about cooking, and his wife Marcela assists the cooking, sets the table and even cleans up afterwards. Loved that Garrett sources out local fish, and produce etc. All courses were explained to us and wow were they fabulous. Fine details such as presentation were never overlooked. Even a vase of flowers from our garden adorned our dining table thanks to Marcela.
We will be sure to use Pura Vida again and highly recommend their service to all. March 20, Garrett is a true genius — from food preparation to presentation to clean up — everything was artfully and divinely done.
Exploring Costa Rica Paradise – The Very Complete Guide Of Pura Vida
Kudos to you Garrett — I wish we could clone you and Marcella and bring you home. We really enjoyed both outstanding dinners you prepared for us and would highly recommend Pura Vida Catering over a sit down restaurant hands down. March 11, My experience with Garrett and his crew was outstanding. His seamless production of an amazing dinner for what was supposed to be far fewer people! He handled the overflow with the best attitude and made me feel totally at ease with my party. The food was delicious and artfully presented.
My Costa Rica Story:
The staff was diligent, professional and all smiles. I wish I could have brought Garrett and Marcella and Amy back to the states with me!! February 26, Right off the bat our experience was totally seamless. Clean up- as if a party never happened in the house. February 10, It was such a treat to have Garrett and Marcela of Pura Vida Catering prepare an outstanding dinner for us upon our arrival to Costa Rica. We were delayed arriving and Garrett was very accommodating with our schedule. We chose the Costa Rican dinner and loved every bite, along with excellent wine paring choices!
The Patacones with Guacamole and Tuna Poke were awesome. The seafood was very fresh and abundant in the Arroz Con Mariscos. Garrett and Marcela were so warm and friendly throughout the evening, sharing their knowledge of the area. They both were very professional serving and cleaning up. It was truly one of our best meals during our stay in the Guanacaste area in Costa Rica. It was a pleasure working with them and would highly recommend using Pura Vida. January 25, Last week we had some friends for dinner and asked Garrett and Marcella to cater for us.
They came completely equipped and settled in while we enjoyed the sunset. He was efficient and unobtrusive, announcing the menu at each course. Afterwards he quietly cleaned up and exited without causing a stir. The food? Give him a try. It is part of the pura vida experience. I recommend the volcano chocolate cake gluten-free , a specialty of Garrett. January 7, It was an absolute highlight of our family vacation in Costa Rica to have Garrett cater several dinners for us.
Everything about our experience with Pura Vida Catering from planning to dessert was awesome. Garrett is a truly professional trained chef and also an incredibly nice guy loves what he does.
He was very responsive to my emails setting up menus for our dinners. He arrived on-time with everything he needed to prepare fabulous meals. The night we arrived we had Garrett leave us a Costa Rican dinner that could be eaten room temp or reheated, because we knew we would be exhausted after a long day of travel. Two other nights we enjoyed the Taste of France and Taste of Italy menus. Marcela accompanied Garrett both nights. She is absolutely lovely and made serving and cleanup look like a breeze. Garrett and Marcela are fun and engaging and we all really enjoyed our time with them.
We could not recommend them more highly, and we hope to get back to the Tamarindo area and have the pleasure of working with them again. Pure Vida! January 5, If your birthday is two days after Christmas like mine is when everyone is usually so tired…. So, up until now, my birthdays have been more or less uneventful and often not celebrated at all.
I told them what we all wanted from their dreamy menu choices and they completely took over and created a birthday party for me that I will remember always..!! We started off with a lovely Mimosa toast to ME ;D and then Garrett and Marcella began to work their magic in the kitchen…!! They showed up completely prepared, organized and maintained their professionalism throughout the night. Their menu choices are very diverse and varied and all our food was prepared exquisitely…!! My lobster literally melted in my mouth and my steak was cooked to perfection…!!
The food was not only prepared perfectly but served so lovingly as well and Garrett educated us about our food choices and the specific way everything was prepared…!!
Your audiobook is waiting…
As an educator and a foodie, I really appreciated this part of the night..!! We were all SO contented and satisfied with the entire evening and will definitely be treating ourselves on other occasions in the future….!! December 13, Rented a house near Tamarindo in March of this year with another family. Garrett was recommended by the property manager and he did not disappoint! We booked Garrett and Roger for two meals during our stay. The food was awesome and the company even better.
Real delight in chatting with Garrett and Roger during the evening. Would highly recommend Pura Vida. Thanks Garrett for some great meals and company. November 4, Garrett made us a four-course dinner that was easily the best meal we have eaten since moving to Costa Rica nine years ago. He is an extraordinary chef and his creations are always a perfect combination of great flavor, impeccable preparation and creativity.

October 27, We had a chef that cooked food that was out of this world. October 13, We had 3 families and 5 little kiddos in a home in Playa Negra. None of us wanted to cook so we pre-planned and booked Garrett out in advance. They fit right into our crazy crew and the food was WOW, phenomenal, over the top! We loved the experience so much we were lucky to find out he could possibly accommodate us again the following day and we booked him on the spot.
Day one was surf and turf with filet mignons and mahi and day 2 was Mongolian glazed ribs and so much more we were in culinary heaven! We highly recommend Garrett for your in-home fine dining and we definitely look forward to booking Garrett for his services when we go back to Costa Rica every year! September 24, His professionalism and cuisine is exceptional, great personable person who I highly respect. He decided to go out on his own and opened up Amigos Restaurant which was a great success and I visited often with my Real Estate clients and Family.
So happy to see the catering business is underway and very excited to have him in my home to treat me and my family to another wonderful meal. Sincerely Jeffrey Allen. September 13, Each of the dishes from appetizer to desert was 5 star. He was on time, prepared, and very professional. I highly recommend his services! August 12, Recently contracted Garrett and Marcella for a group of 18 staying in Guanacaste area. The menu and head count fluctuated daily but Garrett rolled right through every hurdle quickly and professionally.
