Free Digital Magazine in Costa Rica #89
Dear readers, advertisers, and collaborators
We are proudly publishing our number 89 edition. Honoring our founder, this issue is emphasized in initiatives we have in our community.
We had a rough start to the year, but we know that the legacy of Dagmar must continue. She started Ballena Tales Magazine to celebrate the beautiful Costa Ballena initiatives with residents and visitors. She created a kind, cheerful, optimistic, green magazine that also spreads the beauty of our delightful destination.
Dagmar wrote about Amanda Ellis's 2023 World Prediction in the last edition's editorial. She predicted a year full of changes, which already became true for us. Even when it will never be the same again, the team will try to make the magazine as unique as it always was. Dagmar will always remain a part of Ballena Tales in spirit.
With a positive message, Ballena Tales articles talk about helping local poor people, culture environmental protection, lifeguards, local farmer markets, wildlife, healthy life, dogs and cats rescue, local events, and uniquely promoting the beauties that have our destination.
A special thanks to our collaborators; in this edition, dear reader, you´ll enjoy lovely articles about our community's good initiatives.
At the same time, we can speak about our paradise; we celebrate the support received from our advertisers that permits us to follow showing their good services (real estate, medical, beauty esthetical, healthy food, lawyers, accountants, architects, construction, furnishings, photography, lodging, restaurants, adventure, and others).
A special thanks to our advertisers who have responded positively so that Ballena Tales remains part of our community.
Read our featured article about the Pura Vida Bee Amor initiative. Their founders began it four years ago in Playa Hermosa de Osa. They rescue, relocate and care for the bees.
The Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor is one of the most successful initiatives for rescuing our biodiversity.
Of course, you’ll find excellent information about the opportunities you have visiting us; read the article about the Caño Island tour, good restaurants, lodging, and more offers.
Costa Ballena’s paradise attracts more people every day who flee the daily life of the big cities to settle in this beautiful place experiencing significant urban growth. Hundreds of native Costa Rican bird species live with us and others on their journey to warmer fields. We also enjoy exceptional fauna and flora, but this ecosystem is fragile. We must protect it from continuing to enjoy the positive energy from the forest and the ocean.
Dear reader, if you visit us or are already part of the community, contribute your grain of sand to protect our forest, flora, fauna, rivers, and beaches from contamination.

The mangrove forest and its massive maze and the intertwining of trees and roots is considered to be a critical component acting to subdue tidal surge, reduce erosion, provide opportunities for recreation and serve as nurseries for fisheries.
In each magazine edition, writers often relate to a topic relevant to the particular timing of the publication. Unfortunately, we are all writing with heavy hearts about the loss of Dagmar in this issue. Her vibrant personality and dedication to this magazine will surely be missed.
I had the opportunity to take a Caño Island tour. Since I was a little kid, I have loved swimming in the ocean and looking out for all the sea creatures.
In Costa Rica, we have over 50 species of bees. From the Apis melifera (an introduced species), to many others that have co-evolved with native plants.
