Dominical, Uvita and the Osa Peninsula
If there was one place in Costa Rica that was truly postcard-worthy and indicative of the true essence of Costa Rica, it would be the Southern Pacific zone, notably called Costa Bellena, or Whale Coast. Renowned for its ravishing beauty, lush rainforests, abundant wildlife, picturesque beaches, stunning waterfalls and believe or not, sensational culinary diversity, Costa Bellena is very high on our list of best destinations in Costa Rica.
Comparable to the dramatic landscape of Hawaii where towering mountains and verdant forests tumble right down to the Pacific Ocean, little towns like Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal are truly paradisiacal. Costa Bellena is famous for more than just its wild side though, it is also host to some of the best luxury boutique hotels and vacation rentals to accommodate your taste for the finer things in life.
Whale watching season on Costa Bellena is between December and April, which is also an ideal time to visit the Osa Peninsula just to the south. Jacques Cousteau described this part of Costa Rica as one of the most pristine places on the earth. We think that’s a pretty good endorsement!
The Osa Peninsula, often called the Amazon of Costa Rica, is home to the Corcovado National Park, which is one of the most biologically dense places on the planet. A guided hike through the Corcovado National Park is an incredible opportunity to witness rare wildlife and unparalleled natural beauty. If you are looking to get off the beaten path, this is where you need to go.
Costa Bellena is also home to several world-class surf breaks, countless hiking trails, multiple waterfalls and natural swimming pools, hundreds of species of exotic birds and several nature preserves and national parks. Some of the best snorkeling and diving spots are also down here and easily accessible. We only work with the crème de la crème of tour guides and companies, so you can rest assure that your experiences will be nothing short of phenomenal.
As with all of Pure Luxury Costa Rica destinations, we will help you customize your grand Costa Bellena getaway, whether it’s for a few days or the entirety of your vacation. From the best luxury boutique hotels and villas to the finest restaurants and culinary experiences to our exclusive tours and guides, we guarantee you a vacation that you will never forget.
