Life’s a beach! We’ve all heard that famous saying. Well in Uvita Costa Rica it couldn’t be more true.
You’ll find Uvita on any map of Costa Rica nestled in the southern zone along the Pacific Ocean side, Uvita is a quaint, seaside village that is growing in popularity.
It was only a few short years ago when Uvita consisted of a small soda/diner, a local grocery store, mechanic and a hand full of homes throughout Uvita central.
These days Uvita has got to be one of the fast developing communities in the entire Southern Zone of Costa Rica. These days when you drive through Uvita you will find two major supermarkets, a brand new recreation centre, two banks, about half a dozen different places to eat and of course Costa Rica hotels and…residential developments scattered about the hills overlooking the Whale’s Tail.
It’s easy to see why anyone would want to live by the ocean. Beachside living is relaxing and a great escape from the daily metropolitan grind most of us have come accustom to. Some people even find a strong spiritual attraction to large bodies of water so it is not uncommon to find that locals throughout the areas around Uvita, have a strong spiritual side to them and are very open and good natured individuals. Not to mention level headed!
What makes Uvita beach stand out from the rest of the amazing beaches of Costa Rica? From the air it’s obvious…
Uvita beach is very unique indeed. The natural formation of the two bays/beaches meeting together, forms a perfect natural formation of a Whale’s Tail.
This is rather ironic considering Uvita is smack dab in the middle of a humpback migratory route making for an excellent locale to go whale watching.
Although not overly popular for it’s surf, Uvita is still a great place for beginners looking to get their feet wet per se, in to the surfing experience.
As you can see from the photos, Uvita beach is home to beautiful turquoise waters of the Pacific and being a part of the Costa Ballena National Park, the area is filled with wildlife and sea life of all species and it only sits a short 30 minute drive from any number of popular Manuel Antonio hotels.
