The Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica is one of the country’s best kept secrets with miles of untouched coastlines amd stunning landscapes covered in lush rainforests. Uvita offers peace, tranquility and a relaxed way of life and has been attracting expats and second home buyers that are seeking an authentic Costa Rican tropical lifestyle.
Nestled on the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica, 20 minutes south Dominical, Uvita at one time was a small fishing village but in recent years has grown into a beautiful coastal town with a nice blend of local and foreign flavor. Uvita has its own unique character and has great investment potential for those looking to retire or a second a second.
Until recently the Southern Pacific has remained mostly undeveloped in comparison to the Central Pacific region. Now with the new highway from San Jose to the Central Pacific as well as the reworked Costanera highway from Quepos to Dominical, accessibility to Uvita has allowed rapid development. Not only has Dominical real estate seen good growth but the tourism in the area has flourished as well.
Uvita’s beaches are absolutely magnificent! The white sandy beaches with clear, perfect pacific waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The Marino Ballena National Park is a major attraction in the area with lush tropical flora and fauna where you can enjoy the amazing array of wildlife such as whales, dolphins, toucans, monkeys, parrots and sloths.
Expats and part time foreign residence are attracted to the emerging region of Uvita not only for its pristine beauty but because it has become an active growing community. The town has all the amenities that include three national banks, supermarkets, electrical appliance stores, pharmacies, restaurants, bars, art gallery, dentists, Health Care clinic, a new hospital and indoor recreation center.
Playa Uvita is a wonderful community surrounded by a rich tropical environment with all the amenities of a coastal town and yet has retained its small village feel and authentic Costa Rica flavor. Put Uvita on your list of places to explore and see why it’s called ‘paradise on the South Pacific’.
