Travel Guide and Magazine #75, South Pacific Costa Rica

Dear Reader of Ballena Tales Magazine:

With only six weeks left to welcome 2021, we are proud to deliver you another magazine with 22 good stories for big and small. These tales express the writers` interest and admiration for our beautiful region, known for conserving its unique natural treasures alongside the coastal areas and the beautiful lush green mountains.

Here in this land of calm and peace, life is sweet, food is delicious, and the colors of nature and the abundant wildlife inspire the visitors to become a painter or take home many impressive shots.
After a quite intensive rainy season (that is what we call our winter), we welcome back our glorious summer with its breathtaking sunrises and radiant evening skies.

Until you can visit us, INNOCEANA is presenting the educational marine protection program INNOTALES for kids (you can download it and enjoy it with your family on the computer).

Ballena Tales Magazine, reading in family

Already down here in the Canton of Osa, why not visit the Onsite Museum at Palmar Sur, which displays a very informative exhibition “In Osa, History travels on Bicycles.” And when you instead prefer to visit one of our amazing beaches, why not spend a day at Playa Ventanas with its gorgeous water steaming caves.

Here in Uvita, we welcome new businesses to the area: The exquisitely designed Moana Bahía Plaza, Steve’s convenient Supermarket & Deli, and Yoga Maya Uvita, embedded in a beautifully landscaped and soothing environment. Our website reflects the enormous interest in our area.

Now in the comfort of your personal space, you can read the Magazine or download it. Ballena Tales has a universal reach and a content of presently 2390 articles in three languages (Spanish, English, and German). We were anticipating the present circumstances when the print is no longer sustainable. Our website is robust, fast loading (in only three seconds), and has very significant traffic.

If your business is not present in our media, ADVERTISE WITH US>>>, very soon you will convince yourself that is worthwhile to belong to the best network of the South Pacific of Costa Rica.

Ballena Tales Magazine and our Marketing company Pointing Market wishes you the very best for the forthcoming holidays; come in a bubble and celebrate with your family.

With much love,
