South Pacific Costa Rica Travel Guide #72- birding

Travel Guide and Magazine #72, South Pacific Costa Rica

Dear Reader of Ballena Tales Magazine:
Reading this your favorite magazine, which offers you the most exciting and varied content you have ever come across in a South Pacific business-sponsored media, we know you will find yourself very relaxed and lively. You will feel transported to paradise that those of us who live here appreciate and protect.

In times of adversity, we want to demonstrate that the world does not stop. Crises like the one we are experiencing, force us to get off our pedestal and create sober and friendly alternatives for the planet. Difficulties discipline the mind to focus, thus freeing fertile ground for creativity. Interestingly, historically many of the most iconic companies have forged, molded, and survived tough times.

And please don’t go back to “normal” since normal was the problem. We have to learn to take care of our oceans and nature and to collaborate with each other. We are far more spectacular than normal!

Golden hour at Sout Pacific Costa Rica

In the South Pacific of Costa Rica, we live in paradise. We enjoy a benevolent climate, an exuberant nature, and we live in a community of beautiful people. We are self-sufficient: we produce milk, rice, meat, vegetables, and fruits.

In a matter of weeks, our markets have created digital marketing channels for their products. Such channels in the future will help them optimize sales.

Remember that our brains complement the image we hold in mind and transform it into our reality. Visualize, re-invent and regain the vision of a beautiful, harmonious, and full-color future! If countless people did this, what do you think they can achieve?

In the meantime, try to eat healthy, don’t forget to see the beauty around you and feel the love!
We would like you to know that Ballena Tales has been working for you for the last 12 years.
Our website in three languages is one of the best designed in Costa Rica and receives a high
visitation thanks to the variety of its content.

Share the magazine and its stories with your family, friends, and business partners!
Thus we support our destination, help to reactivate our economy, and therefore, ourselves.
A cordial Greeting

Royal Palm Interiors Design

The seed for Royal Palm Interiors designs was probably planted back in 2006. When we were ready to think about building and furnishing our new home in Costa Rica, we discovered the only place to find any decent selection of furniture was in San Jose. A carpenter could build us some wood furniture – but would it comfortable? They were good at making doors and cabinets – not sofas! My background was interior design, so let’s say I was a bit particular. Shelagh Duncan
