Welcome to our 4th Edition of Costa Ballena Living
As our beloved coast grows and changes, we welcome more visitors to the area, year after year. This “Green Season”, we greet yet again the majestic Humpback Whales that return to the warm waters of the ‘Parque Nacional Marino Ballena’ for mating and gestation, and whom are featured centre stage during the Whale’s Festival held in September. We are also blessed with more marine visitors, the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle, that begin nesting July through to December. Nothing can quite describe the experience of helping a newly born baby turtle make it’s way to the ocean bottom. With much to explore and discover, you will find Costa Ballena has something to offer for everyone, from adventure to fine dining, to relaxation and wildlife observation, our coast is blessed with epic sunset views and a community that is as diverse, as it is welcoming.
In this edition we share stories from individuals about their Costa Rican experiences that have empowered them to live better, more wholesome and fulfilling lives. Empowerment comes in many different forms and can come via various life experiences as our contributing writers share. Arguably, empowerment could be defined as that feeling that you get when you feel you can accomplish anything. That whatever you set your mind to, is what will be. Whether that means irradiating disease from your body, as Zahara’s story demonstrates or being able to reconnect with your true self, as Jeannine recounts, every experience that contributes to growth is one that enables an individual to feel empowered. In the end, empowerment is whatever allows a person to become more independent, self reliant, confident, healthy, and balanced. Many people have had such experiences in Costa Ballena, and so it is our wish that you too can feel first hand what many before and after you have felt, empowered!
A rich experience awaits, enjoy your moments in Costa Rica.
“Your life is your story, make it a good one.”
