Commonly referred to as part of Uvita, Bahia Ballena is located just 15 minutes south of the popular surf town of Dominical. Bahia Ballena is a breath of fresh air for travelers looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the southern Pacific region, as well as the laid-back charm of a small, authentic Tico town.
Whether you are looking to enjoy the solitude of a pristine beach, take a surfing lesson, snorkel the clear waters of Cano Island, or hike through the jungle, Bahia Ballena is the perfect place to spend inordinate amounts of relax time and / or be used as a jumping base for nearby attractions.
Uvita, Costa Rica is a small town located on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, roughly three to three and half hours from San Jose, the capital. Although the area is still largely undeveloped, it is gaining more and more popularity among tourists who come to see the gorgeous scenery, experience the Pura Vida way of life, and get away from the crowds that typically throng many of the other beach towns and cities in Costa Rica. Bahia Ballena is commonly grouped with Uvita (people will refer to it as Bahia-Uvita) because each is so small and they are literally across the river from one another. Here you can enjoy the beach and slow pace of life in Bahia Ballena and the conveniences of the more populated town of Uvita.
Costa Ballena is the southern Pacific coastal region of Costa Rica that stretches from Dominical to Ojochal. It is a unique stretch of coastline where the jungly green mountains meet the beautiful Pacific coastline and pristine beaches abound. Unlike the northern region of Costa Rica, the Costa Ballena area has been mostly untouched by large-scale development and the region’s natural beauty and prolific wildlife are a testament to that.
Meals provided will be family-style with members of the Bodhi Surf team and frequently, other community members. The aim is to facilitate a sense of sharing and community. Your other meals can either be prepared at the Bodhi lodge (every room has access to the cooking space) or you can support the local economy and learn about its culture by eating at local restaurants.
To arrive by bus, take a bus from San Jose to Dominical (approximately a six-hour bus ride) and then a bus from Dominical to Bahia Ballena. Another option is to take a bus from Quepos to Bahia Ballena, approximately a 90-minute bus ride.
