Southern Pacific coast

Nestled between the Osa Peninsula and the northern province of Guanacaste is a quiet little coastal region around Uvita and Dominical, also encompassing Marino Ballena National Park.

Marino Ballena National Park is named after the humpback whales that migrate here each year from December to April to mate before returning to the colder waters of the north – the whale and dolphin-spotting here is simply superb during this season. Deserted stretches of gold sand beaches and clear turquoise waters are backed by lush mangroves, home to marine iguanas, Olive Ridley and hawksbill turtles.

The scuba diving and snorkelling are fantastic in Costa Rica’s newest marine park, as are the hiking and horse-riding ashore on the tranquil beaches here. There are a handful of small boutique hotels and a few remote private villas here for one of Costa Rica’s best kept coastal secrets.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
