One of the ultimate destinations for those who seek the tropics and all their green, peace, and adventure at the same time.
On the wild Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, the rain forest keeps the treasure save, beautiful wide and quiet beaches to relax, amazing landscapes and the perfect crystal clear water to collect forever memories.
Do you want to witness magic?
Guarded inside the Marino Ballena National Park there is a half mile sand bar shaped by the ocean like a giant whales tail. It emerges twice a day during low tide as a narrow beach with two shores, one right in front of the other, where you can spend your day in a mind-blowing picnic setting, where you can swim, or just relax. But also if you want to go further, this is the perfect place to snorkel and witness the secret living world underneath this Natural Wonder.
Are you in for adventure?
Choose a Stand Up Paddle tour in Ventanas Beach (10 minutes away from Uvita in Ojochal town) – this is the high recommended tour if you can picture yourself cruising the bay at your own speed, being the captain of your own board, with your paddle swaying with the ocean’s rhythm while you enjoy the amazing rock formations and caves in front of you, passing through the caves and get to the other side, wanting to go back and do it all over again. Nobody is going to blame you for taking as many pictures you can, that’s the reward when you sign for adventure.
Feel like a quiet ride into the deep green?
There are three main estuaries in this area full equipped by miles of forest on both sides to ride in a Stand Up Paddle tour, these exotic mangroves are home to hundreds of native species that little by little are getting used to watching the jungle enthusiast being amazed by the beauty they find in every corner.
Can you feel like the jungle is calling your name?
How does “cruising the longest river in Costa Rica, just us and our kayaks” sound as a photo title?
Oh yeah! You can go for a kayak or Stand Up Paddle tour and ride a peaceful section of this giant and let yourself get embraced by the river mangroves with the most exotic scenery in a jungle of water trees, also the biggest mangroves in Central America. The Terraba River awaits you only 10 minutes from Uvita.
If you find that paddling in river waters is your thing, right next to Dominical is the Baru River where you can either learn how to start paddling or improve your technique in sweet flat water.
If you can’t get the green out of your mind, in Uvita, Dominical and the nearby beaches you will find yourself in the right spot to live exciting experiences, guided by the most passionate environmentally and ocean-minded staff, people who love what they do and know exactly how to immerse you in their magical world of wonders.
Just picture yourself surrounded by all this nature, adventure, the crystal clear ocean, which is the best place for the biggest of nature’s travellers to play – the whales. And the luckiest traveller of the map, the one who is just steps away from all the green combo of the most enchanted area in the gorgeous Costa Rica… yourself!
