Along the southern pacific coastline of Costa Rica there is a thirty mile long stretch of mountains covered in lush tropic jungle that rises from the sea, called Costa Ballena.
In the heart of this area is the village of Uvita, home of Ballena Marino National Park. The Ballena (whale) refers to both the parks unique geological anomaly, sand and rock feature shaped like the tail of a whale and the fact that twice a year migrating whales stop and make this bay their home for a few months.
Costa Ballena has only had a paved access since 2010 keeping it remote and rural. The Tico and International population that have made this area home have a deep love and respect for nature. Most of the entertainment in the area is simple, outdoor activities, live music, great food, farmers markets, and yoga. There is little development in the way of shopping, movie theatres, or public institutions.
Uvita is a good place to live a holistic, healthy lifestyle, with abundant fresh, produce, unique tropical fruits and fresh fish. The area offers great hiking, horse back riding, surfing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, scuba and snorkeling along with numerous waterfalls, river rafting, ATV tours, bird and whale watching.
