en el mente de un tico, que significa "Pura Vida"?

So, pura vida is used instead of hola or cómo estás? How would one translate pura vida in a casual conversation? As "hello", "how are you" or as "awesome" or something else?

Hola Garry

Yes, it seems to be like a very Costa Rican phrase that one can use as a hello, also as a "I'm good!", as a general "How are you?" - and I understand it's a phrase that is said to express something positive, whatever that might be. 

Here is a bit more information about this nice expression if you want to read a bit more though. 

Saludos
