The Place and The People
The tranquil town of Uvita is an ideal place to experience the Bahia Ballena Marine Reserve. This small community promotes sustainable development while also protecting its natural heritage. Its marine conservation efforts will be stimulating subjects of exchange between you, environmentalists, ecologists, and local community members.
This off-the-beaten path corner of Costa Rica still maintains its traditional way of life. Visit a farmer who will welcome you into his home and share how concepts like “organic” are simply how he’s always done things. Meet artisanal fishermen who have become allies in the struggle to preserve the ocean, as well as scientists, activists and other “Ticos” eager to share their way of life with you.
