As we all well know Costa Rica is one of the greatest places on earth to do whale watching. Not only because you can get a really closer look of this amazing animals or because in the same trip you can do lots of different activities (one of the perks of coming to this small but beautiful country), but because whales can be seen in the pacific coast almost the whole year around, just May and June are not whales season. In fact, from December to march whales can be seen both in the pacific coast and in the Caribbean coast, and March is a good time to look for the Humpback Whales with their babies and dolphins families specially at the south of Manuel Antonio, Uvita-Dominical and Corcovado National Park. Several boat expeditions are offered by hotels and lodges to look for these beautiful creatures. Or even having a drink at restaurants with a view and spend time watching to the Pacific Ocean waters may enhance the possibilities to have sightings of a humpback whale in the wild! So if you have clients coming in March, a whale watching tour can be a good addition to the planned trip if you haven’t book one already, and it will be a wonderful way to impress your clients. If you need more information about this activity don’t hesitate to call or write us!
