Ballena Tales Magazine & Travel Guide, Issue #54
Some me 10 years ago, an isolated strip of coastal land in Costa Rica’s South Pacifc, between Dominical and Ojochal, was named COSTA BALLENA. This area is currently in constant development and the number of visitors has increased thanks to the opening of the Costanera road and the diversity of attractions of this territory. The city of Uvita is the capital of this region and has everything that is necessary to enjoy a pleasant and simple lifestyle.
Fortunately, with a very “Pura Vida” style, there are no big malls or “all inclusive” hotels; here you can be yourself, share time with the friendly locals at the great restaurants and coffee shops, relax, and forget about the world while you stay at any hotel you may like with the budget you need.
Farther south is Sierpe, which has one of the most important wetlands on the planet. Near here is Palmar, where you can admire stone spheres and an indigenous community called Boruca, with a rich culture and art expressions.
Costa Rica’s South Pacific is a destination with plenty of attractions and history. For instance, the city of Golfito exhibits beautiful architecture built by the Banana Company; it’s quite different from the brand-new docks and the modern facilities of the Golfito Marina Village, which opened in late April.
Another city that is worth visiting which is connected to Golfito by a ferry is Puerto Jiménez, in the Osa Peninsula; it used to be home to gold miners. A short distance away is the Corcovado National Park. Enjoy the incomparable beauty of the Golfo Dulce during this trip.
For the past nine years, Ballena Tales Magazine is present in Costa Rica’s South Pacific, and has become a very efficient source of advertisement. The printed magazine is made up of our website and digital marketing to promote this tourist destination and our sponsors’ products.
As part of the effort to offer a better service, there have been some recent advances in the printed version, and now we have improved the design and layout for our website.
Thank you, dear readers and advertisers, for keeping Ballena Tales Magazine at the top.
