A Whales’ Paradise and Surfing

Paraiso de Surf, Whales & Dolphins Watching

by Cheme

Costa Ballena in the South Pacific of Costa Rica has become one of the favorite areas for domestic and foreign tourists, thanks to whales watching and our charming beaches.

Playa Colonia was acknowledged as one of the best beaches to learn surfing.

Thanks to the unconditional support of the Federation of Surf of Costa Rica, the Chambers of Tourism, and the media, we are creating the new "Whales and Surf" paradise. Let's support the local surf and help tourists with information about our beaches.

We have the potential; we have surfing!

In December 2014, the Central American Surfing Games took place in El Salvador. Our friend Diego Chévez represented our country and our beautiful Costa Ballena. Diego gave his best in the water, but his participation got complicated. His paddle broke 500 meters from the starting point; however, he continued the race without worrying about finishing last; unfortunately, his second paddle also broke, nevertheless; his characteristic positive attitude helped him finish the race.

When he arrived at the beach, his teammates applauded and took him to the finish line on their shoulders.

All delegations from neighboring countries also cheered his commitment of not giving up. We are very grateful to Diego for his great contribution to our community and for giving us such a terrific lesson. The Osa Chamber of Tourism acknowledged the young sportsman’s achievement.
