One of our favorite things about this property is it’s so close to Marino Ballena National Park. There are so many activities to do at the park, but first and foremost, whale watching and paying homage to the infamous Whales Tail. Beyond that, consider snorkeling and observing the colorful reefs. There is so much to explore in beautiful Uvita.
