Nature. Adventure. Relaxation.
You'll find it all here in Uvita, Costa Rica, where wild rivers and waterfalls tumble down the lush slopes of the Talamanca Mountains into the turquoise waters of the Pacific. It was here that pre-Columbian people left behind hundreds of mysterious stone spheres in the rainforests and deltas of the Costa Ballena region. Uvita has been a well-kept secret for many years. Now, due to the new highway that runs down the Pacific coast, the area is beginning to be discovered. We think it is one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica and we think you will too.
Located on the southern Pacific coast just 40 minutes south of Quepos / Manuel Antonio and 15 minutes south of Dominical, the Uvita area is well known for its incredible biodiversity, profound natural beauty and idyllic, pristine beaches. Humpback whales and dolphins can be seen in our clear ocean waters throughout most of the year. Monkeys, parrots and toucans play in the tree canopy above as you relax in a hammock on your own private balcony with a cool drink in your hand. Watch the brilliant colors of the sun setting over the Pacific as the hypnotic sounds of nature surround you. Our deluxe accommodations are set amongst waterfalls and beautiful jungle gardens overflowing with fragrant flowers and hundreds of exotic, tropical fruit trees for your enjoyment.
For adventure lovers, PurUvita is a dream come true. Whitewater rafting, surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling, biking tours, horseback riding on the beach or through the mountains, kayaking, zip lining, canopy tours, waterfall tours, hiking, birdwatching, boat tours of the mysterious Sierpe mangroves and Cano Island, windsurfing and kitesurfing, tours of the nearby Finca 6 Stone Spheres and museum (a World Heritage site), standup paddleboarding, ATV off-road tours, canyoning (rappelling down waterfalls), tours of the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge, tours of Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, day trips to Corcovado and Manuel Antonio National Parks, sport fishing, golfing, whale watching tours and so much more will keep your adrenaline pumping and your senses exhilarated.
