Steve’s Supermarket is adminístrated by the Costarrican family Acuña-Jiménez who came to Uvita eight years ago. It was a time when Costa Ballena was reopening for investment, and many new businesses popped up. The family constructed a building with its typical triangular shape, conveniently located on the way to the Marino Ballena National Park, close to Uvita center and only meters away from the Coastal Highway. Opening hours from 6 AM to 9 PM.
The Supermarket & Deli was baptized “Steve’s” in honor of the owners’ youngest sons, who will take over the establishment one day.
The Acuña-Jiménez family wishes you the best for a pleasant holiday with your family. Enjoy your stay in Costa Ballena, and come back soon!

What a beautiful spot. You will now understand why people love this secluded beach, surrounded by lush rainforest and lined with palm trees. It mostly has calm waves. The shallow waters are safe for children (always under their parents’ observation and paying attention to the lifeguards’ alerts.)
Indeed, most of the Costa Ballena region is dependent on tourism. Given that as the background, we hear from our homeowners, clients, and the social media channels: What can we do to help with the local economy?
Most of the construction on the Costa Ballena and Osa Peninsula is done by hotels and second-home builders drawn by the lush rainforest. Native timber feels like an obvious choice: who doesn’t love a handcrafted Cristobal door’s luxury?
It is an exhibition with identity, designed by and for the inhabitants of the Osa Canton. It is a temporary exhibition “In Osa history travels by bicycle,” which you can admire at the Finca 6 Museum site, in Palmar Sur.
