Playa Ballena teems with
wildlife, from the hundreds of species of birds to the lone
cow who drops in for a slurp from the fresh water stream
that trickles out to sea.
Many park wardens are staff-quartered along this beach and
the park entrance gate here is always manned. The charge is
600 colones for locals and 6 US dollars for tourists.
There are outdoor showers, picnic tables and recycle trash
The beach has light-beige powdery sand which is especially
enjoyable for strollers during low tides.
