Devoted to a mission, Murph becomes consumed by the idea of finding a product that can endure the “pure power” exerted by an alligator’s bite. After countless disappointments, he has finally discovered his perfect match—the KULA Cooler.
The term “pura vida” has been present in Costa Rica’s vocabulary for over 50 years. It translates to ‘pure life’ or ‘simple life’. However, it’s more than just a phrase. It’s a way of life.
