READ OUR LATEST EDITION ONLINE

Ballena Tales,  your Comprehensive Travel Guide, and Magazine South Pacific Costa Rica

Dear Reader, welcome to our issue # 77

By chance, the number 77 has a meaning that describes me so perfectly that I dare to share it with you: it is abundant in spiritual power; reflects a personality that is interested in learning about more abstract things in life. People who have this number are very imaginative and creative and are adventurers and also seekers of wisdom.

They are interested in almost everything and like to interact with people, with many different people – age groups, social and ethnic backgrounds, education levels, or people with varying points of view. Experiencing everything at least once is a natural part of their adventurous approach.

The fundamental essence of numerology number 77 is the full expression of personal freedom. These are the character traits that keep me fascinated by these landscapes, mountains, and the ocean, the people’s kindness, and the tranquility we breathe.

Here we live in nature with its rivers, beaches, forests and have the time to talk with a friend, which is worth more than a visit to a shopping center.

Comprehensive Travel Guide & Magazine #77, South Pacific Costa Rica

The days here begin with meditation and exercises in the open air. Some of us don’t usually eat breakfast (you know, it’s because of the intermittent diet); others are vegans or frugivores.

And at 9 am, our Editorial Team meets for another day of creation: ¿How to support our clients better, develop a new strategy, decide which is the best photo for an article, and answer our readers’ questions? We work with the windows wide open in the middle of nature, and after lunch, we continue until 5 pm if we are not in the middle of the deadline or covering an event.

She replied, “Next week, in Costa Rica.”

SURF SEASON ON THE BALLENA COAST

SURF SEASON ON THE BALLENA COAST

Much like our summer and winter seasons change, the seasons of big surf also changes. The summer months of hot sunny days are gone for now, and a more wet, stormy, and cooler season brings more gifts. Many refer to this wet season as “the green season.” As a surfer, I refer to it as “ the surf season.”
