South Pacific Costa Rica Magazine and Travel Guide, Issue #66
When the Costa Rican summer ends and the first rains fall, nature comes to full life again. Lush green vegetation, dotted with a blossom of all colors, warm rain showers, and the return of the ocean’s grander waves. The high season has ended. For those of us living here, it is the best time of the year pleasing us with milder temperatures, fruit harvests from all over the land, an end to wildfires, and less traffic on the Costanera Highway. It is an excellent time to take advantage of the green season prices, to get to know the locals better and visit one of the welcoming bars and restaurants along the coast.
It is a cooler “insider” summer with sunny mornings and rain showers in the afternoon, just right for sitting on your terrace to enjoy an interesting book or invite friends over for a BBQ.
The surf season has started with Dominical´s best event: the Semana Santa Classic. This little town has much more to offer than surf. It is the “Happy Feet” headquarters – a dance and ballet school for kids. The Happy Feet company has already performed in San Jose and now, they are getting ready for another very special presentation on June 1st. Our Costa Ballena Lifeguards fill us with pride, they have just achieved the ISLA Certification on a national level in Guanacaste. These young men and women save lives nearly every day and fully depend on the funding of our community (see page 40).
An endearing story about a “goat hotel” high in the mountains waits for you. We are innovating our new Uvita map, please give us your feedback! In the mountains of Biolley, Ballena Tales had an unforgettable experience at the Coffea diversa Garden . Mangos are nearly falling on your head wherever you go, read on page 86. And there is an exciting article about Wild Borders referring to the Corcovado National Park.
We are proud to announce that “esencial COSTA RICA” by ICT (Costa Rican Tourism Board) is now part of the brands present in our magazine.
We hope you will read our magazine on one of those rainy afternoons. Enjoy!
