Ballena Tales #85,  South Pacific of Costa Rica Free Magazine 

Dear reader,

Costa Ballena is a land with lush nature, the infinite ocean on one side of the coastal highway (Costanera Sur), and the colorful ara-macaws crossing the skies. The temperature is refreshingly cool now during what we call our winter from May to November. There was no "Veranillo de San Juan" for the second year in a row, which should happen around June 24th, San Juan's day. It used to interrupt the periods of rain for ten days, the sun was shining like on the best days of summer and the temperatures were rising. Now, don't think residents stay at home in "winter." We prefer the sunny mornings to be out and around and, if possible, work from home in the afternoons.
Costa Ballena, the latest treasure discovered in Costa Rica, gives shelter to people from all over the world. Each has a story, falls in love with the area, and wants to give back in puravida vibrations. That's how initiatives are created.

Ballena Tales #82, Free Magazine, Costa Rica

Grettel Castro, on the cover page, found her project Sun Braids, when years ago coming to Uvita, inspired by the resplendent light of the South Pacific. "While I braid their hair, my clients can connect with the glow we all carry inside; it is an empowerment ritual."
In June, Tinamaste celebrated its 6th edition of the Seeds Event. Plant and seed exchange, fresh organic food, great music, and many visitors. More than a social event, it was calling attention to the danger of the seed privatization in Costa Rica. Guest-speaker Henry Picado from the capital spoke. Guadalupe Urbina, Paloma Coronado, Chino Mora, and DJ Cor-a-son lit up the hearts with their evocative music.

Ballena Tales #85, Free Magazine Costa Rica, Le French Cafe,

Le French Café in Uvita initiated in June a series of Four Hand menus, and we had the visit of a nearly real circus. The excellent community ensemble presented the Greatest Showman on Earth in Uvita Bahía.
Multicultural Festival

In July, the Multicultural Festival's appealing program attracted many visitors from nearby and far.

A must when you come to the South Pacific is a visit to the Museum of Finca 6 close to Palmar Sur.
You can book tours to get to know the area's attractions at Enjoy Osa. You can even go on a whale monitoring tour with a hydrophone to listen to the whales songs.
