Reviews

We stayed at Casa Pura Vida in Dominical and the property was just fantastic! It's nestled in the rainforest with perfect view of the Pacific Ocean out front! More than that, the manager, Neil, was amazing at making our stay most enjoyable. He had the best suggestions on where to go, where to eat, and even sent us to beaches and waterfalls that were totally private and exclusive. He also made it easy to find the property (a rare treat when traveling in a country with limited signage) and was even prepared with driving directions back to the airport. He did a great job in helping us pick the type of adventures we wanted to go on while we were there. We truly enjoyed our week-long stay (it wasn't long enough!) and saw more wildlife in the backyard than we did anywhere else. It was a truly magical experience that was managed expertly.

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!
