Uvita Real Estate
Uvita, just like the Southern Zone, is a laid back town known for its unspoiled beaches and incredible waterfalls. It is the commercial center of the area known as Costa Ballena or The Whale’s Coast, and the gateway to the Marino Ballena National Park, in Puntarenas. Uvita is a biologically and topographically impressive region. Towering mountains rise 2,000 feet above the sea level within one mile of the coast, which has allowed developers and architects to build some of the most impressive hillside estates with ocean views.
The higher elevations make it feel like you’re a world apart, even though you’re just minutes away from some of the most impressive beaches in the world. The altitude allows for cooler weather, which means less mosquitoes and lots of verdant vegetation. The Marino Ballena National Park is Costa Rica’s second most visited park, with over 300,000 visitors each year. Home to the famous Whale’s Tail reef formation, this conservation area is what has shaped Uvita into the tourist destination it is today. The area is also famous for being home to the tallest waterfalls in the country, and the gateway to Isla del Caño, a nature reserve famous for its incredible marine life.
Among its neighbors, Dominical and Ojochal, Uvita stands out for being one of the greatest launching spots for tourists since it offers amenities and services. This has transformed it into one of the fastest growing areas of the Southern Zone, with a plethora of real estate investment opportunities to fit any size and budget. In spite of its growth, Uvita is still a slow-paced village with a palpable sense of community. Expats, tourists, and retirees keep the area fun, vibrant, and embody the meaning of pura vida.
