Uvita is famous for its beach forming a distinctive whale’s tail at low tide and disappearing at high tide. However, this is not its only association with whales.
Uvita and the Marino Ballena National Park represent a unique place in the world where you can observe humpback whales from both hemispheres. The northern humpbacks typically start to arrive in Costa Rica in December and can be seen until around April. Southern ones don’t show up until later in July and stay until the beginning of November. This means that there is a chance of seeing humpback whales in this area for nine months out of the year.
Those fascinating marine mammals pick this protective area to breed and give birth. So, be ready to spot them with their calves and enjoy a one-of-a-kind encounter! And a lot of whale breaching too!
During this whale watching tour, you may also spot dolphins, turtles, visit natural caves, swim by the beautiful Ballena Island, or enjoy some snorkeling. Finally, you will get access to the National Park which is a great opportunity to walk and explore one of the most pristine sandy beaches of the Southern Pacific coast.
