WHAT TO SEE

The stretch of South Pacific Costa Rica coastline from Dominical to Ojochal, known as the Costa Ballena, is swiftly becoming one of the hottest destinations in Costa Rica. The South Pacific Coast is a remote area with pristine beaches, diverse wildlife, and untouched rainforest. If you want an unspoiled beach experience without all the stress of a busy tourist destination, the South Pacific might be just what you’re looking for.

WHERE TO EAT

Restaurants define this part of the Costa Ballena as the culinary destination of the South Pacific. With fine dining ranging from Mediterranean to Indonesian, you are sure to find a great meal. Reserve in advance because people travel from as far as Jacó to dine in a jungle atmosphere.

SURF THE MANY BEACHES

If you are coming to Costa Ballena, you should definitely learn to surf and if you are an advanced surfer, well you're in for a treat. Surfing is an experience like no other, and one of the reasons why Costa Ballena is a very special place.

Playa Chaman

Stunning Beaches

Costa Ballena offers a variety of stunning beaches to visit. Five of our favourites are Playa Ventenas, Playa Dominical, Playa Uvita, Playa Matapalo and Playa Chaman. All within 15-40 minutes from "Casa Oasis del Sol".

Whales Tail

Costa Rica’s famous whale's tail is located in the small town of Uvita, about 25 minutes north of "Oasis Del Sol" and is part of Parque Nacional Marino Ballena. This national park, one of only two national marine parks in the country, consists of 270 protected land acres (110 hectares) and 13,200 acres (5,375 hectares) of preserved ocean. The delicate ecosystems that the park protects include things like mangroves, coral reefs, beaches, and whale-breeding grounds. The whale's tail itself is a result of converging currents. These currents deposit sand on top of the rock formations to create the unique, tail-shaped pattern.

Cascada Nauyaca

Waterfalls

When Mountains meet the Beaches the earth creates magnificent waterfalls. There is no shortage of Waterfalls in the Southern zone. Some nearby Falls are Santa Lucia Falls, Uvita waterfalls, Nauyaca Waterfalls. All are worth a visit.
