Recent Uvita guest reviews

This home was a perfect fit for our family. Beautiful location with a stunning view off the back terrace. The kitchen had everything you could possibly ever need, and there were plenty of board games to enjoy. The pool was great when the day got hot! There was really nothing we needed that was not already provided. be sure to get up early in the morning and enjoy the birds and howler monkeys!

The home was really clean and beautiful. The beds were comfortable. There were a lot of amenities for cooking which was really helpful. The road up to the house is not for the faint of heart and can be kind of confusing to get to going about 12 minutes up steep dirt roads, but once you do it the road gets easier. The views and property are gorgeous and worth it. Would recommend for adults and families with older kids, but maybe not toddlers.

The house was amazing and perfect for our family of 4. It was very clean. The pool was great and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook when we were home for meals. It was a little hard to find at first but it was dark when we arrived. I recommend using waze as google maps took us the wrong way but it was really close. The host was very responsive and helpful. Wifi was better than expected. Very happy overall. Would stay here again!

Where is Uvita, Costa Rica?

Nestled along Costa Rica's west coast in the Costa Ballena region, the small village of Uvita is easily accessible with Costanera Sur - the country's coastal Highway 34 - running right through its center. Situated only 77 miles from the stunning, oceanside town of Jacó, 140 miles from Costa Rica's capital, San Jose, and 155 miles from Pavones, this idyllic little village is perfectly positioned for access to all of Costa Rica's must-see attractions.

Things to do in Uvita

If you're all about communing with nature, supporting sustainability and art, and you love yoga and live music, Envision Fest is for you. Come get your dance on and party with other like-minded individuals at this four-day event at Rancho La Merced. Surrounded by rainforest and just a short walk from the splendid beach at Playa Hermosa, this is the perfect setting to find spiritual bliss!

Another popular attraction in Uvita is the Cola de Ballena, or "Whale's Tail," in Marino Ballena National Park. This sand plume is the third largest in the world, and is located in Marino Ballena National Park. Aside from this, the park offers visitors a look at the rich and diverse ecosystems both on water and on land. Come visit this protected coral reef, and you'll likely see dolphins, whales, fish, sea turtles, starfish, and more.

Other fun ways to spend your day may involve a tour: trek to a waterfall, go rafting, or dolphin watching, then try your hand at kayaking, surfing, and canyoning. Our Uvita vacation rentals put you in a great place to create lasting memories of your Costa Rica trip!

Day Trips from Uvita

With so many amazing places nearby, you may have a hard time staying close to home. In that case, set out for a day trip to explore the entire province of Puntaneras, which happens to be Costa Rica's largest. Make Dominical your first stop, a mere 11 miles north where you can witness some of the tallest waves in the country on a beautiful, sun-warmed beach. Do some windsurfing, kitesurfing, snorkeling, or scuba dive to your heart's content. Or visit Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary and experience the lush, green rainforest with a waterfall hike.

Or head south about 96 miles for a somewhat rugged trip to Pavones, another choice surfing location in Costa Rica. It's a small coastal town featuring Playa Pavones, a lovely palm tree-lined beach where swimming is so tempting, it's nearly mandatory at low tide. 

Where to eat in Uvita

Stop in at Los Laureles Restaurant Bar and try their ceviche, patacones, and tacos, and see why many consider this unassuming family-run venue to be one of the best in Uvita. Another family-run favorite is Sibu Coffee House and Restaurant. Here, you'll find delicious coffee and juices, filling breakfast items - like their flavorful breakfast burrito - salads, and shakes.

If you're in the mood for a burger and a beer, Roadshack Deli is your place. The atmosphere is laid back, and the menu options are plentiful and substantial. When you want to treat yourself to a nice dinner out, head to Sabor Español. From tapas and paella to wine and sangria, this local favorite will leave you satiated and glad you came. 

When you come to beautiful, diverse Costa Rica you'll have more than enough to fill your days. And when you stay at one of our vacation rentals, you'll not only benefit from their convenient locations, you'll be able to revel in the comfort and privacy that come with having your very own home away from home.
