Day 9. Parrita – Uvita, Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast. +/- 2.5 hours.

Morning self drive to Dominical. For a less crowded beach vacation, Uvita may be the ideal location. Sitting 11 miles (17 km) south of Dominical along Coastal Highway 34 (Costanera Sur), this tropical hamlet possesses great charm in an unspoiled, serene atmosphere. With palm trees swaying in the wind, providing shady relief from the intense Pacific sun, it may seem surreal that this environment is as uncorrupted as it is. It won’t stay like this forever though, conditions will one day change and the secret of the Bahia Ballena will be out. November / December is the perfect season for whale watching. 

4 nights accommodation on B&B basis in an ocean view villa at Oxygen Jungle Villas.

Days 10/11/12. Relax and explore Marino National Park.

We have included a boat tour for Whales & dolphin watching. Date and time will be coordinated according to ocean tides and weather conditions. You will be informed locally about the best date. Search for Humpback whales, listen to their love songs and feel the great sensation of watching a mammal that weighs more than 40 tons jump out of the water and splash its gigantic tail. Snorkel and observe dolphins, turtles, bi-color parrot fish and more! 

We highly recommend visiting Marino Ballena National Park (Cost not included). The park covers an extension of 110 land hectares and 5,375 sea hectares and is named after the humpback whales that migrate from mid July and October, and again in November through March from feeding and mating grounds in the north and south hemispheres to the warm tropical waters of Costa Rica. Also you can drive just 45 minutes to Manuel Antonio National Park for the day and enjoy not only the beautiful beaches but also see and explore the variety of wildlife including monkeys, sloths.
