We have traveled quite a bit but this was one of our best vacations ever. The house was amazing and it was just like how it was described in the website. The kitchen had all the amenities that we needed. We all loved the infinity pool and of course that amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Seeing Whale's Tail from the house provoked our need to go see it in person. It took us a time or two to find it but when we did it was worth the time. We saw toucan's everyday flying around the area of the house and even a couple very up close by the pool. We did not see any howler monkeys but we did hear them. We had a varying range of ages and interests in our group of seven but we all found many things that we wanted to do and accomplished them. I would strongly suggest the waterfall tour, it was amazing but the water was freezing but definelty worth it. I am recovering from back surgery and did not want to risk the horse ride but they offered a pick up ride instead. That worked out great for all of us, it had padded benches in the bed so it was comfortable. This tour comes with breakfast and lunch, both of the meals were really good. For the price it was a real deal. Of course some of our group did the zip line through the rain forest and they all came back with many stories. Everyone enjoyed that but they did say if you are afraid of heights it may not be for you. We loved all the mom & pop restaurants along the road sides, we never had a bad meal. We did go into Dominical one evening and had tapas at Confusione Tapas Restaurant, it was wonderful. We all agreed when we return to this amazing area and property we need to plan a two week vacation, one week was not enough. Neil was great with arranging all the tours we wanted and helping us navigate the area. He even helped to arrange a wedding for us at the house. We have the most wonderful pictures from the wedding. The ceremony was held under the tiki hut and our bouquets were made by a local woman from flowers and greenery on the property. This definelty will not be a trip any one of us will ever forget. Thanks so much to Jerry, Theresa and Neil for a perfect vacation.

Whales in Costa Rica

Blog

Get your binoculars packed and a boat ticket lined up because it’s whale season!

For those of us lucky enough to visit Costa Rica’s south Pacific coast, the next few months (from August through October) are prime time for spotting Arctic-based humpback whales in local waters.

These graceful mammals, which can weigh as much as 50 tons but are as nimble as a middle-aged cat, migrate from as far as Australia toward Central America during the southern hemisphere winter to mate and calve.

Humpback whales live an average lifespan of 40 years, and adults can grow upwards of 50 feet in length. During mating season – when they’re in southern waters – these adult humpbacks don’t eat, instead living off massive supplies of blubber. The newborns, meanwhile, feed on their mother’s milk during mating season.

The Osa Peninsula and Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita are two of the most popular destinations for whale watching tours in southern Costa Rica. At these locations, female humpbacks use shallow, warm waters to birth and feed their young while males remain in deeper water looking to procreate. Male humpbacks are known for crafting varied and complex songs that combine a mixture of grunts, groans, moans and just about anything else that qualifies as a mating call. These songs can last, on average, 10 to 20 minutes. Females, however, do not sing – at least not when any researcher has ever been listening.

At Bahia Ballena Marine National Park, sea life is incredibly abundant. In addition to dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, sailfish and manta rays, it’s common to spot orcas, pseudo orcas, pilot, beaked, sei or Bryde’s whales during peak season. There are daily whale-watching tours that leave from Uvita, which is located 15 minutes south of Dominical. If you have an upcoming vacation planned at one of our Dominical luxury rentals, we can assist you in booking any of these amazing tours free of charge. Simply email for more information.

And don’t worry, because if you miss out on Costa Rica’s winter season whale-watching tours, you can always catch a glimpse of northern hemisphere humpbacks when they come through town from December until March. As you can probably tell by now, the fun never stops in southwest Costa Rica!
