Skydive Pura Vida is a small personalized drop zone operated by the most experienced Skydiver in all of Costa Rica. We specialize in giving our customers a safe and highly Intimate first jump experience. Our 39 years of experience gives us the ability to show the best aspects of our sport from the exhilaration of freefall to the flying sensation of the parachute ride in a worry- and stress-free environment. Our experience in Hollywood and the film industry enables us to capture this adventure with high Def video and photos so you can share with your friends and loved ones later.

My 20 years flying for the Air Force has taught me to pay attention to the details, this carries over into my business and it shows. From the Aircraft Maintenance to the parachute rigging you will not find a tighter run operation in this country. We are not some fly by night operation here today and gone tomorrow. Our facility is centrally located near Puntarenas at the Aeroclub De Aranjuez. We operate out of a beautiful and comfortable Airplane hangar on this private airstrip.

Skydiving Aircraft - Cessna 182

We own the Cessna 182 which sets the standard for safety, comfort and performance. You and your friends will enjoy the ride in. And your friends on the ground will enjoy the show from picnic and viewing area.

The Cessna 182 Skylane is an American four seat, single engine light airplane. Aircraft is maintained and inspected to United States Federal Aviation Authority standards.

The Cessna 182 is the most reliable and popular skydiving aircraft used in the world today. Comfortably holding two tandems and their instructors, the 182 ensures your experience will be all about you. We will take off and climb over the ocean, allowing tandem passengers birds-eye view of amazing surf breaks and beautiful beaches. A scenic 20 minute ride to altitude and you are ready to jump. The wide cargo door ensures a smooth exit, and a swift descent ensures no one will have long to wait for the next exciting adventure!

This Airplane is based at Drop Zone on the beautiful Aranjuez Airpark.

  • I had a great time skydiving with the instructor Clem yesterday. I'm a beginner skydiver myself and he gave me lots of great advice to improve my skydiving. He also had rental equipment in good condition for skydivers. I highly recommend this dropzone!

  • Had a blast jumping out of the plane over by the beautiful gulf created by the Nicoya Peninsula! You get a birds eye view of Puntarenas while climbing and David, the man who owns the plane, is the best guy to jump out of a plane with overall! I definitely recommend checking out this team if you are considering jumping out of a plane any time soon!

    Es war der Hammer, wir sind Lizenzspringer und haben Clem (der Betreiber von Skydive Pura Vida) geschrieben ob wir springen kommen können und er war super nett und hat uns sehr viel geholfen und wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt und sicher ! Wir hatte sogar eine Privatsession mit ihm alleine also nur zu 3. sind wir gesprungen und Diego der Pilot hat uns sicher in die Luft gebracht. Clem ist ein sehr Erfahrener und entspannter Springer.. wir können Skydive Pura Vida nur empfehlen! Wir kommen auf jedenfall wieder wenn wir in Costa Rica sind. Wunderschön dort! Der Ort ist zum Springen definitiv was besonderes und nebendran gibt es einen Fluss zur Abkühlung danach und Duschen bei der Picknik Area also vergesst die Badesachen nicht!

  • Magnifica experiencia

  • Impresionante experiencia muy recomendable, no solo por la caída libre sino por las vistas que se pueden disfrutar desde la avioneta mientrás se logra la altura del salto, unos 9.000 pies. Clem el instructor es muy profesional y hace del salto una actividad inolvidable. Es una experiencia que si es algo cara pero compensa hacer el esfuerzo en una ocasión especial. En el aeródromo del Aranjuez de Pithaya también se puede realizar otras actividades como Paratrike -parapente con motor -y vuelos en ultraligero.

    Una zona de salto genial, con instructores muy capacitados y reconocidos a nivel mundial. Recomendado 100% tanto si es su primer salto tandem o si es un salto por diversión las personas ahí lo van a instruir mucho y le van a ayudar para ir aprendiendo más sobre este genial deporte. Tiene amplia zona para parquear, también zona para relajarse en sillones, venden bebidas y hay baños.
