Uvita is the center of The Ballena Coast and the home to Ballena National Park. Playa Colonia, the closest beach (only 500 meters away) to Bienestar is a national park. It is a long shallow beach in a big bay, where you can see all of the Osa peninsula and Isla de Cano, which is 16 miles out to sea. It is still an undeveloped area with no buildings within 200 meters for the beach. Most days there are only a handful of people visiting the beach. Uvita is very relaxed and has an easygoing vibe.
