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.

Where to stay in Uvita

When looking for accommodations in Uvita, access to the coastal national park is key. Many of the best places to stay are located on the streets just near the beach, offering views over the water and proximity to the national park's entrance. These bed and breakfasts, resorts, and guesthouses cater mainly to mid-range guests, but you can find more budget-friendly options in the center of town, on the other side of the coastal highway.
