  • The Parque Nacional Marino Ballena is one of the most unique reserves in Costa Rica. Located just offshore along the Central Pacific coast in South Puntarenas, the Park protects more than 13,000 acres of ocean and 9 miles of coastline. Comprised mangrove forests, coral reefs and untouched beaches, the national park is one for the travelers who want to view fragile wildlife while escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The park is named after the humpback whales that migrate to the region from Antarctica and Alaska each year.

    Whales and dolphins emerge from the water and offer a spectacle that you can witness. A favorite site of humpback whales and several types of dolphins, this park becomes seasonally a natural setting where these animals can be seen. This area was created with the purpose of ensuring the maintenance of critical habitats for the reproduction and spawning of many marine species, as well as preserving the productivity of the biological communities that inhabit the coastal zone. It protects varied environments such as sandy beaches, stony beaches, cliffs, islands, rocky reefs, organic reefs and the tombolo of Punta Uvita. The Parque Nacional Ballena Marina is framed within a region of great scenic beauty, so in addition to the scientific value, it has great value for environmental education and tourism development.
