Uvita

4.5
Waterfalls · Dolphin & Whale Watching · Beaches
Ideal for visitors looking to escape Costa Rica's busy beaches, Uvita offers a serene atmosphere and plenty of uncrowded sand for a leisurely vacation. Swimming and surfing may be the most popular things to do in Uvita, yet the town treats tourists to more than just the typical sun-and-sand experience. The nearby marine reserve provides a chance to spot humpback whales, while the area's waterfalls serve as alternative swimming destinations. A short drive out of this little village you can find other settlements, inhabited by ex-pats from around the world and locals selling organic fruit, vegetables, and honey. Put Uvita at the heart of your travel plans by using our Costa Rica online sightseeing planner.
