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.
