Ballena Tales #81, your Comprehensive Magazine
Has it ever happened to you that at one point, you are so absorbed by a pleasant occupation such as taking photos of the beauties in the environment or writing about a subject that resonates with you?
With our eyes open and the camera at hand, we can detect many curious and beautiful things that we had not previously noticed. There is beauty in a vast field where the grass moves in the wind, delimited in the background by the Brunqueña row. At every moment of the day, the ocean and the beaches show a different face; the tides move the shores, and the sun and moon tint the environment in endless nuances.
Going for a walk or cycling through nature, mountains, or being near the sea is one of the greatest gifts that Costa Ballena offers us. Be captivated by a stream of fresh crystalline waters, a morpho butterfly that opens its royal blue wings just when you are passing, or the most attractive bird reborn in recent years in Costa Ballena, the elegant scarlet macaw with its ordinary scandal.
If you are looking for more challenging activities, check out ENJOY OSA, our newest creation, a page that offers a lot. Review and book what appeals to you the most!
Other activities are soccer for children, the new Center for Education and Marine Conservation invites you to participate in its activities and Osa Sensorial promotes inclusive tourism.
To be even more attractive for the Holidays, Bahía Ballena Doctors ensures that a liquid Facelift will enhance your beauty. And the Herbalist Miguel, who gathers his herbs and roots in the forests of the high mountains, recommends his products to stay in perfect health.
Christmas and New Year are just around the corner; all restaurants have a special menu for these days. Two exceptional suggestions are the 100% gluten-free La Palapa Restaurant at the Hotel Cuna del Ángel. The chef has created delicious menus that will please the gourmet, celiac or not. At Le French Café (near the Marino Ballena National Park), there is a menu of 17 cocktails to celebrate at any time of the day. Three dates to enjoy an authentic French Christmas dinner and New Year’s champagne brunch sounds very tentative.
Best wishes for the New Year 2022. Pura Vida!
