“The Flutterby House is an amazing little beach hostel in Uvita with great vibes, yummy food, and tasty drinks. We really appreciate the sustainable practices they follow and love supporting them. The Flutterby House is located a 5-minute walk to the famous "Whale Tail" beach ($6 entry to the beach most days), making it a great spot to grab some food and a cold drink after a swim, sunbathe, or surf lesson. *If you're planning on spending any nights in Uvita and want a budget-friendly option near the beach, we highly recommend checking out their website to see the cabins and bunk options that are available - we love the Flutterby!”
“Playa Arco Uvita: Playa Arco is one of five beaches in Marino Ballena National Park. This park is one of the country’s only national marine parks and has gained recognition for its whale-tail-shaped sandbar. The general public must go through the Ballena Sector Ranger Station and pay admission ($6 foreigners or ¢1,000 nationals). The best way to find this ranger station is to look for a restaurant on the side of the highway (Route 34) a few miles south of Uvita called Ballena Bistro. The dirt road on the right immediately after the restaurant leads to the ranger station. ”
