Uvita is home to the Bahia Ballena National Park. The famous whales tale makes this beach so special. You can either whale and dolphin watch, snorkel, surf (small waves) or go horseback riding or just enjoy the beautiful scenario. The beach is also great for swimming as there are no dangerous ripe tides and huge waves. Small rivers go into the ocean, where kids love to play. There are some great local restaurants by the beach, and you can also camp there. There is a small fee to be paid to enter.
A friend of ours - Georg - offers great ultra light flights! Its a very unique way of seeing the country. "Jorge" - a native German - is a truely unique character. Visit his airport on the right side of the Costanera going south, right after the last big supermarket and the second entrance to Bahia Ballena. His website is www.ultralighttours.com.
If you do not like bugs, then costa rica is probably not such a great place to visit. There are tones of them, and we actually think that is pretty cool. Especially, during the green season (April - August) and rainy season (September to early December), you will see the most interesting creatures outside but sometimes also inside the house. So, make sure you know this before booking your flight :-)
Our caretaker Gumercindo has been working for us since 2005. He has a great sense of humour and is very open minded. We call him Gumer, and really the property would not be the same without his hard work and great gardening. He will be able to tell you what fruits are ripe right now and when to best plant what. The photo below shows him with his current girlfriend Cecilia, who likes to sing very loudly and not really well :-)
There are 2 or 3 international car rental companies in Uvita (budget, alamo, and I believe hertz). However, if you want long-term cheap rates, than look for Tricolor Car Rental (http://www.tricolorcarrental.com/) and Adobe Rent a Car (http://www.adobecar.com/) out of San Jose. Adobe Car even offers additional discounts if you become one of their friends on their facebook website. A friend has rented from Adobe several times, and she has been very happy with their value and service. For long term rates, the most basic 4WD starts at $20 per day!
