Dining at La Vida Llena

Come meet with friends over a meal.

La Vida Llena offers four restaurants, three sit-down options with menu service as well as buffet style dining for your convenience. The fourth option is a cafe with quick grab-and-go options throughout the day.

All restaurants offer breakfast, lunch and dinner in flexible blocks of time to allow for independent schedules so you can continue to enjoy an active retirement lifestyle and have dinner ready when you are.

Residents Doing Swimming Exercises

The Pools

There are two pools at La Vida Llena, one on the Main Campus and one at Nueva Vista. Both are indoors, heated, and have hot tubs. There are daily open swim times and fitness classes offered in the pools as well.

Classes such as aquatic exercise are designed to provide maximum benefit while being very gentle on the joints. We offer a choice of coed, women’s or men’s aquatics classes.
