Maria Hawkins & Mohinder Randhawa


Our love for life, each other, and traveling the world brought us together!   As our relationship grew, we talked seriously about having a business of our own – something we could brand and build together that would combine our interests, experience, and love for life. Our dream became a reality early in 2018 when we made the decision to form Pura Vida Global Travel, LLC.  

To us, the name PURA VIDA (Pure Life) is exactly the way we feel when we are with each other.

Between the two of us we have over 55 years of combined travel – visiting over 65 countries and seeing some of the most spectacular sights in the world including the finest hotels, cruise lines, fine dining, cultural tours, spas, and adventure excursions you can imagine! Our travel portfolio includes countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America.  We specialize in giving our clients a very unique and tailored experience and this will keep you, your family and friends coming back to us over and over again, year after year, for all your travel needs.  

Prior to Pura Vida, Paul has practiced over 25 years as a surgeon specializing in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, and Maria spent over 30 years in retail leadership (fashion merchandising) and business development fields.  Our work experience also gives us the special ability to build relationships based on the trust and connection that not only our clients hold in very high regard, but also the suppliers we work with.
