Uvita in Costa Ballena, South Pacific Costa Rica, isdeveloping by leaps and bounds. This multicultural community has become an important commercialand business center amid the most beautiful scenery.You will nd unique tours, sophisticated gourmet restaurants and cozy eateries with typical food, hotels with all facilities, cabins, and eco-lodges with stunning views of the Pacic Ocean, as well as banks, supermarkets, hardware stores, pharmacies, car repair shops, information centers, beauty salons, and real estate ofces.Once you settle at your place of choice; what are you planning on doing with so much sunshine and tropical beauty? We suggest you explore!Visit Marino Ballena National Park. The famous Whale’s Tail is located at Punta Uvita, with a length of about 2296 feet and a width of 820 feet; it is the world’s third-largest sandbank. During the low tide, you can walk to its very end.Foreign tourists pay $6 entrance fee to the park, and national visitors pay $2 (no cash accepted). Please save your receipt because you can use it on the same dayto visit the Colonia and Ballena beaches further south.Take a four-hour kayaking tour in the national park, you can paddle, swim, and snorkel along thecoral reef, walk on the whale s tail and enter themysterious world of the mangroves in Bahía. You can experience all the different ecosystems thisunique marine park has to offer in one perfect tour.Excellent surfing beaches are Hermosa, Chamán, and Ventanas. A surfer said: “nce you have surfed Playa Chamán, you will never be able to leave Uvita.” That is what happened to him and so many others. On Wednesday and Saturdaymornings, visit the Farmers’ Market; it is where the locals meet. If you are an avid reader, visit the UCL, Uvitas second-hand bookstore next to the Tracopa bus stop. For ten years, Uvita was the home of the world-famous Envision Festival. UVITACosta Ballena, Costa Rica

In Uvita´s stores, you can buy everything youneed. There are restaurants for all tastes and hotels for any budget. There are also fitness centers, a post office, doctors, pharmacies, a police station, and beauty salons.Adventuring a few kilometers up to the mountains on dirt roads, you will find rivers and waterfalls cascading from the heights into small pools. The rainforest full of squawking, chirping, and buzzing of cicadas merges with the bubbling sound of streaming water. A bright blue morpho butterfly is bouncing with dazzling iridescent wings. Hummingbirds hover over heliconia flowers, rays of sunlight pierce through the forest canopy, and the vines turn upwards to find the light. From afar, you can hear the hoarse screams of Howler monkeys and the late-day chatter of the green parrots making their way home.Back at the town center, there are no traffic jams, just the Pura Vida lifestyle! You have arrived at the biggest town of Costa Ballena: Welcome to Uvita!

Sharing Your Gift with Others The gifts we are born with and those that we workto develop throughout our lives vary in form and function. Some we find a use for every day while others are only useful in specific circumstances. Yet, we often overlook opportunities to share our unique gifts with others. It may be fear of criticism that holds us back or the paralyzing weight of uncertainty. Ultimately, we doubt that our innate talents and practiced skills can add value to others’ lives. But it is the world as a whole that benefits when we willingly share our gifts. Whether you have been blessed with the ability to awaken beautiful emotions in others through art or industry, or your aptitudes transmit more practical advantages, your gifts are a part of who you are. As you use those gifts best, be assured that your contribution to worldly well-being will not be overlooked.Your personal power is defined in part by your gifts. Using your talents demonstrates to the world that you understand yourself and are truly attuned to your capabilities. Your earthly existence provides you with ample opportunity to explore your purpose, utilize your skills in a life-affirming way, and touch the lives of others while doing so. Yet you may feel that your gifts are not as valuable or worthy of attention as those of others and thus hide them away. However, every gift lying dormant in your soul has the potential to fill a void in someone else’s life. AUTHOR: DailyOMJust as your existence is made richer by the love, support, friendship, aid, and compassion of others, so, too, can you add richness to their lives. Your natural ability to soothe hurt, inspire empathy, bake, dance, knit, organize, or think outside the box can be a boon to someone in need. As you embrace your gifts and allow their light to shine, you will discover that more and more opportunities to use them arise. This is because your gifts are a channel through which the universe operates. You make a positive difference by simply doing what you are good at and love to do. The recognition you receive for your efforts will pale compared to the satisfaction you feel when fulfilling your innate potential.BODY, MIND, AND SOUL -UVITA AND SURROUNDINGS

f there is a town along Costa Ballena that genuinelydeserves to be called a tranquil spot, it is Ojochal.

Yoga and Pilates is offered in several retreats for peace seekers. If you love going to the beach, you should visit Playa Tortuga; and as the name says, the beach is named after the turtles that nest here, mostly Lora or English Olive Ridley, although there are reports of green and leatherback turtles. During the turtle season, they come here in large numbers to lay their eggs. Near to Ojochal is another beautiful beach called Playa Ventanas; its name comes from the big openings in the rocks that the ocean shaped like a big “ventana”, the Spanish word for window.OJOCHALAn Immense Park Near to the Ocean
