Pura Vida peartree

Pura Vida Peartree combines creativity, physical activity, ocean marveling, and human connection - some of workshop leader Liza Lubell’s favorite things. When Liza (owner/founder of Peartree Flowers) tried to figure out how to get all of her friends down to Costa Rica to soak up the intoxicating magic of Nosara with her, she realized her friends had a particular set of uncanny talents. Their specific talents could come together and they could teach a unique workshop. Liza was immediately curious how each person’s craft might play off another. How movement in the morning might influence one’s flower arranging creativity in the afternoon. Or how the sweet smells in Nosara might add calm to a surfing lesson. She started to think more about the relationship of the physical/creative connection and was eager to bring these ideas to life. When the Harmony Hotel stepped in to host the workshop, it all came together. The Harmony's commitment to sustainability, tranquility, and their love affair with this sleepy town has long been admired by Liza.
