Feb. 2 - Resort Day in Uvita, Costa Rica

“Fill your sand pail with life’s hidden treasures.” –Author Unknown
We're staying a nice boutique hotel above Uvita, called Vista Ballena. It has a wonderful view of the ocean and a spectacular pool. For these reasons and the fact that it's quite warm...we decided to take a resort day. We spent the whole day sitting around the pool...with an occasional dip in the water to cool off. When we planned this trip we thought we'd spend more time at the beach, and there are some great beaches in the area, but walking on the beach isn't very appealing when the daytime temperatures are in the 90s and the sand is dark. Hopefully we'll have more beach time on the next vacation.

The view from our room...you can just make out the whales tail in the distance. Low tide was at 6:15 AM, so we missed getting to walk out there, but we had a peaceful relaxing day by the pool.

We have seen toucans quite a few times this visit to Costa Rica, but this the first time they were actually close enough to photograph.


  1. Uvita, Costa Rica is love. I would like to recommend the pink sand in Bermuda. Whale watching in Bermuda is pretty awesome. You must try it.

    1. We're actually heading to Bermuda in July...no whale watching though.
