"La Pura Vida!" this is the holiday experience we want you to have, a pure life! The resort is spacious and stunning. It is located in Dauin, 15 kms south of Dumaguete City on Negros Island. Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort is built from divers for divers and is under Swiss management. Real tropical atmosphere with lots of coconut palm trees and other plants. Situated along the picturesque golden sandy beach and with its large swimming pool. It is as well an ideal place for families and perfect for divers. Our dive center “Sea Explorers” has more than 28 years of experience in dive operation and it is a PADI 5 star Career Development Center (CDC). It offers fun dives, all diving courses from beginner to professional level and snorkeling activities. The “dive with a smile” motto is very much alive in every dive you make.

Had a really great time in Pura Vida for 5 days, wish I could give more than five stars! The resort was beautiful, well-kept, the rooms clean and cozy, and the resort staff very friendly, helpful, and always smiling. The Dive Center was the best I've had so far in my 2 years

It is still a bit far from the airport as it is located in another town. There are vans for rent at the airport that can bring you directly to the resort.Good luck!

"Sea-view rooms/ bungalows sind sehr empfehlenswert, da die Aussicht nicht nur wunderschön sondern auch äußerst beruhigend wirkt."
"the more quieter rooms are more in the back as well as the suits"
"Stay and scuba dive at another location."
"ghost pipe is wonderful but book early"
"Beach front rooms (such as the one I stayed - Seahorse room) are excellent."
