Congratulations to Costa Rica on its Bicentennial of Independence! From its foundation in 1821, a guideline for conduct determined that Costa Rica “recognizes and respects civil liberties, property, and other legitimate national rights of every person and any state or nation.” The country
has proven that it can live in peace, freely and democratically, even with limited economic resources and facing significant challenges while respecting the environment.

Best wishes to the recently-inaugurated Body Revitalization Institute in Dominical! It has a comprehensive program of healing alternatives to ease your discomfort. The Eco Feria has reopened its doors, inviting people to make conscious decisions about living in the countryside and supporting the local economy.
On our way South, we stop at Playa Hermosa, Osa’s first accessible beach for wheelchair drivers enabling the enjoyment of the warm waters of the South Pacific to people with disabilities.
After 4 km, we arrive at Uvita, considered the capital of Costa Ballena, a town that has it all, right in the middle of the most incredible surroundings of the mountains and the ocean.
