Uvita in Costa Ballena, South Pacific Costa Rica, is
developing by leaps and bounds. This multicultural
community has become an important commercial
and business center amid the most beautiful scenery.
You will nd unique tours, sophisticated gourmet
restaurants and cozy eateries with typical food,
hotels with all facilities, cabins, and eco-lodges with
stunning views of the Pacic Ocean, as well as banks,
supermarkets, hardware stores, pharmacies, car repair
shops, information centers, beauty salons, and real
estate ofces.
Once you settle at your place of choice; what are you
planning on doing with so much sunshine and tropical
beauty? We suggest you explore!
Visit Marino Ballena National Park. The famous Whales
Tail is located at Punta Uvita, with a length of about
2296 feet and a width of 820 feet; it is the world’s
third-largest sandbank. During the low tide, you can
walk to its very end.
Foreign tourists pay $6 entrance fee to the park, and
national visitors pay $2 (no cash accepted). Please save
your receipt because you can use it on the same day
to visit the Colonia and Ballena beaches further south.
Take a four-hour kayaking tour in the national
park, you can paddle, swim, and snorkel along the
coral reef, walk on the whale s tail and enter the
mysterious world of the mangroves in Bahía. You
can experience all the different ecosystems this
unique marine park has to offer in one perfect tour.
Excellent surfing beaches are Hermosa, Chamán, and
Ventanas. A surfer said: “nce you have surfed
Playa Chamán, you will never be able to leave
Uvita.” That is what happened to him and so
many others. On Wednesday and Saturday
mornings, visit the Farmers’ Market; it is where the
locals meet. If you are an avid reader, visit the UCL,
Uvitas second-hand bookstore next to the Tracopa
bus stop. For ten years, Uvita was the home of
the world-famous Envision Festival.
UVITA
Costa Ballena, Costa Rica
In Uvita´s stores, you can buy everything you
need. There are restaurants for all tastes and hotels for
any budget. There are also fitness centers, a post
office, doctors, pharmacies, a police station, and
beauty salons.
Adventuring a few kilometers up to the mountains on dirt
roads, you will find rivers and waterfalls cascading from
the heights into small pools. The rainforest full of
squawking, chirping, and buzzing of cicadas
merges with the bubbling sound of streaming water. A
bright blue morpho butterfly is bouncing with
dazzling iridescent wings.
Hummingbirds hover over heliconia flowers, rays
of sunlight pierce through the forest canopy, and the
vines turn upwards to find the light. From afar, you
can hear the hoarse screams of Howler monkeys and
the late-day chatter of the green parrots making their
way home.
Back at the town center, there are no traffic jams, just the
Pura Vida lifestyle! You have arrived at the biggest
town of Costa Ballena: Welcome to Uvita!

Sharing Your Gift with Others
The gifts we are born
with and those that we work
to develop throughout our lives vary in form and
function.
Some we find a use for every day while others are only
useful in specific circumstances. Yet, we often overlook
opportunities to share our unique gifts with others. It
may be fear of criticism that holds us back or the
paralyzing weight of uncertainty. Ultimately, we doubt
that our innate talents and practiced skills can add value
to others’ lives.
But it is the world as a whole that benefits when we
willingly share our gifts. Whether you have been blessed
with the ability to awaken beautiful emotions in others
through art or industry, or your aptitudes transmit more
practical advantages, your gifts are a part of who you are.
As you use those gifts best, be assured that your
contribution to worldly well-being will not be overlooked.
Your personal power is defined in part by your gifts.
Using your talents demonstrates to the world that you
understand yourself and are truly attuned to your
capabilities.
Your earthly existence provides you with ample
opportunity to explore your purpose, utilize your skills in
a life-affirming way, and touch the lives of others while
doing so. Yet you may feel that your gifts are not as
valuable or worthy of attention as those of others and
thus hide them away. However, every gift lying dormant
in your soul has the potential to fill a void in someone
else’s life.
AUTHOR: DailyOM
Just as your existence is made richer by the love,
support, friendship, aid, and compassion of others, so,
too, can you add richness to their lives. Your natural
ability to soothe hurt, inspire empathy, bake, dance,
knit, organize, or think outside the box can be a boon
to someone in need.
As you embrace your gifts and allow their light to
shine, you will discover that more and more
opportunities to use them arise. This is because your
gifts are a channel through which the universe
operates.
You make a positive difference by simply doing what
you are good at and love to do. The recognition you
receive for your efforts will pale compared to the
satisfaction you feel when fulfilling your innate
potential.

f there is a town along Costa Ballena that genuinely
deserves to be called a tranquil spot, it is Ojochal. If you

many reasons why so many foreigners, especially French
Canadians and North Americans, made their new home
here in this relaxed town.
That does not mean that there is nothing to do; there
are many places to explore while staying here. Yoga and
Pilates is offered in several retreats for peace seekers.
If you love going to the beach, you should visit Playa
Tortuga; and as the name says, the beach is named
after the turtles that nest here, mostly Lora or English
Olive Ridley, although there are reports of green and
leatherback turtles. During the turtle season, they come
here in large numbers to lay their eggs.
Near to Ojochal is another beautiful beach called Playa
Ventanas; its name comes from the big openings in the
rocks that the ocean shaped like a big “ventana, the
Spanish word for window.
OJOCHAL
An Immense Park Near to the Ocean
f you want to discover more of this beautiful town, you can decide if to
explore your surroundings or go on horseback with a guide to
explore the mountains towering over the area. No matter what
you choose, be sure to bring your camera to take photos of all the
animals that you will detect in the impressive landscapes in the
middle of exuberant nature.
Perhaps you want to combine adventure with hiking while
discovering wildlife, you might end up in a natural pool with pure
mountain water. You could go on a hiking tour to El Pavon, an
outstandingly beautiful waterfall, an example of what nature has
created in this masterpiece called Costa Ballena. You can swim in
the natural pool with fresh and clean mountain water. You will feel
overwhelmed by the beauty of the Costa Rican jungle.
After a day full of adventures, you can choose between tasty
local and international restaurants. Ojochal is a town where many
foreigners settled, creating an attractive “gourmet destination” in

Come fish with us in Drake Bay with one of the best
captains in Costa Rica. We are located on the northern
end of the world famous Corcovado National Park,
literally where the road ends. Captain Willy will take
you to his favorite spots to catch grouper, snapper,
roosterfish, wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi, sailfish and
marlin. Pack your cooler to bring your fresh catch
home. We welcome all fishermen including children.
We have 2 boats to choose from, the Reel Escape- a
35ft Cabo Yacht and the Reel Time- a 26ft walkaround
center console. Check us out on Trip Advisor
we are rated the #1 tour in Drake Bay.
