Holidays to Central & Southern Pacific, Costa Rica

Varied but always beautiful, the Central and Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica is not to be missed. 

Along the Central Pacific Coast, you’ll find gems such as the Manuel Antonio National Park, whose coast is shaped like an anchor. There are over 250 types of wildlife in this region of Costa Rica, not to mention beautiful forest-fringed beaches and one of a kind ocean views.  

Further south, Uvita offers a laidback Costa Rica experience. Over the years, this relatively small resort has retained its old-world charm, with a few shops and cafes to peruse; you’re sure to enjoy taking your time whilst wandering, stopping occasionally to shop the local crafts.  

Uvita has grown in popularity during recent years, owed to its close proximity to the Parque Nacional Marino Ballena, a stunning marine reserve where humpback whales can be seen during their migration.

  • Uvita is home to the wonderful Whale and Dolphin Festival, celebrating the migration of humpback whales

During my extensive travels across Latin America, I not only became fluent in Spanish, I also left fascinated by the vast cultural and landscape differences throughout the region. Latin America always pulls me back wanting to discover more.
