  • It is truly a remarkable natural occurrence to see a rock formation jutting from the beach in the shape of a whale's tale and the whales actually migrate through the area. You need to go at low tide b...  more »

  • Amazing and beautiful beach, and what makes it even better: completely empty! You can enjoy long days there seeing the sunrise and the sunset, surfing and sunbathing and you barely encounter people during the entire day. A must-visit for everyone looking for a peaceful yet breathtaking landscape and beach.
  • Beautiful park! An amazing, huge beach. The whale's tail is a really cool experience, just check the tide schedule to make sure you give yourself time there.
  • Loved this park! Had no idea of all the beaches included in the modestly priced entrance ticket. Very long coastlines, with surreal views. Every angle was an awesome picture waiting to be taken. The water was very warm, and we stretches of time we were the only ones out there at midday. Here are a few tips. Tip 1: Beware of crocodiles in the mouthes of the rivers going into the ocean. Tip 2: If you do a boating tour, keep your ticket because you can use it to visit all of the beaches throughout the day. Tip 3: Come during low tide, or else you will not be able to see the whales tale.
  • Famous whale tail beach, charges $6 per person for tourists. I'd skip it. All beaches are beautiful in Costa Rica, but this one charges for it.
  • Such a beautiful beach!! One of my best days in Costa Rica was here. You can hang out on the beach or come at low tide and walk out on the whales tail.
