Uvita, Costa Rica

whales tale uvita costa rica

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.
