South Pacífic Costa Rica Magazine and Travel Guide, Issue #60
Dear Ballena Tales Family
This is a special occasion to express my gratitude to everyone for 10 years of interest in our magazine, to our advertisers for their trust and our collaborators for their professionalism and ongoing optimism.
Growing with our area has been the most fascinating voyage I have ever engaged in, knowing our outstandingly beautiful community thoroughly as it encourages us to build together.
We have traveled from the mountains of Chirripó to the Osa Peninsula to cover surf competitions, interview hotel owners, meet with tour operators and airlines representatives, promoting the area with tales about nature and wildlife, and updated information about businesses through our sponsored articles. This allowed us to accompany the progress of growth and development of the South Pacific area.
In our present edition, we are pleased to tell you our story, how it all started and what occurred before we arrived at our 10th anniversary.
Recently we accompanied the G-String Cowboys to their first concert in the Chirripó Valley at the Batsú GastroPub in Canaan de Rivas. We found it definitely worthwhile, spending a weekend in the fresh air of this cute little mountain village.
Las Velas at TikiVillas Hotel in Playa Hermosa, a very romantic restaurant, presents Chef German who will be pleased to prepare specialties even if they are not on the menu.
In Uvita, Jungle Arts & Dance and Pied Piper Productions will be presenting a great theatre show The Mago of Oz. Make sure you don’t miss it!
Tickets are for sale at our Ballena Tales office.
Have a look at the news from the Kabe school, in Uvita as well, and the new Eden leisure center in Bahía.
From Ojochal we have news that Chef Pablo from Castillo´s Kitchen has participated in the international Culinary Championship in Lima, Peru. He will surprise you with some very innovative recipes!
Pura Vida – with all my appreciation for you!
