Described by many as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, southwestern Costa Rica has a variety of beautiful beaches and fantastic views. Of the many spectacular beaches found here, Playa Uvita is a hidden gem and one of the most stunning beaches on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast. Its year-round pleasant weather perfectly matches its 2-mile white-sand beach that boasts moderate waves and crystal-clear blue waters.
Things to do in Uvita
Since Playa Uvita is part of the Marino Ballena National Park, fishing and hunting are strictly prohibited. However, swimming conditions are ideal here, and a variety of water sports are available. Playa Uvita is home to many inviting coastal landscapes that feature beautiful estuaries and mangroves.
The town of Uvita has a charming local village atmosphere. Horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, and scuba diving are popular activities in the area. For those who prefer a more relaxed pace, the relatively quiet beach has few tourists. It’s conducive for long walks along the coast, sunbathing, and enjoying the fabulous scenic beauty and marine life. After you’ve rested up a bit on the beach, you can take a tour of nearby Isla del Caño, Isla de Los Violines, Isla de Ballena, or hike to the forests and mountains just a few miles away.
Living in Uvita
Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of the sea, chirping birds, and delicious coastal breezes. Look out your window, and you’ll see whales and dolphins dancing and jumping in the distance, putting on a unique performance that seems to be just for you. One of the most fantastic attractions of this beach and the natural park that surrounds it is its world-class whale-watching opportunities. This is the kind of life that awaits you in Uvita.
