The town of Uvita is a convenient commercial hub for the many popular beach destinations nearby. Its own beach, part of the Marino Ballena National Park, is a great place to watch migrating humpback whales.
It’s also, ironically, shaped like a whale’s tale due to the fact that it’s situated where two neighboring bays meet. It’s great for swimming and snorkeling and spotting the olive Ridley and Hawksbill sea turtles that come onshore to lay their eggs.
The area is growing in popularity, though still a little less widely known as its more happening neighbors. Land activities include hiking to waterfalls that some say are the best in Costa Rica.
You won’t find a lot of condos for sale in Uvita, but there are plenty of single family homes to choose from, as well as vacant land just waiting for you to build your dream home.
Properties in Uvita are a good value based on the level of amenities and the incredible natural beauty the area offers. And with a median home price of only $462,000, single family homes cost generally a little less than in most Costa Rican towns near the beach.
Here you can see that, in most cases, that median home price should get you a minimum of 3 bedrooms, maybe more.
The price for land in Uvita has increased as more and more developers have begun projects in the area. It’s grown significantly in recent years, though more as a commercial and business hub than an expat hotspot.
