The Osa Peninsula and the South Pacific Travel Guide

Parque Nacional Marino Ballena

Named for the whales (ballenas, in Spanish) that seasonally migrate here, this park protects marine life in miles of ocean, as well as 10 km (6 miles) of coastline, incorporating four separate beaches, each with its own character. Opportunities abound for fishing, whale- and dolphin-watching tours, kayaking, camping and just combing the beach and swimming. Sunsets here are unbeatable.
