Transcript of "4 beautiful nearby beaches from portasol living"

  1. 1. 4 Beautiful Nearby Beaches from Portasol Living
  2. 2. Matapalo Beach Matapalo Beach is the closer beach to Portasol, only 2,5 miles. A long open beach with a beautiful natural shadow given by the tropical almond trees. Every year Matapalo Beach welcomes the Olive Riddley Turtles and the Black Turtles, which arrive to lay their eggs from June to November. The Leather Backs are rarely seen, since their laying season is from October to March. ASVO (Asociación de Voluntarios para el Servicio de las Areas Protegidas) and ATOMA (Amigos de la tortuga marina de Matapalo), are two groups of volunteers that care for the turtles by guarding the beach at night, reserving the turtle nesting and leading the turtle release program
  3. 3. Dominical Beach Dominical beach completes this lineal coastal section neighbored by bays, islands, and headlands that, eventually arrive at Marino Ballena National Park and Punta Uvita only few minutes away from Portasol. With perhaps the most consistent waves in Costa Rica, Playa Dominical is a haven for surfers. Swimming, however, can be dangerous due to the strong riptides that are found throughout the 2.5 mile (4 km) strip of beach.
  4. 4. Manuel Antonio National Park Between the main town and the national park, there are several world-class beaches in the area. Here, you can enjoy the wide variety of activities such as swimming, hiking the Manuel Antonio National Park, surfing, or simply relaxing while watching a vibrant sunset.
  5. 5. Marino Ballena National Park The water just off shore provides wonderful snorkeling as the park is mostly oceanic, except for the mangrove and wildlife riddled 9.3 miles (15 km) of coastline. Camping is permitted within the park. The entrance fee is $6. At the north end of the park is Uvita, a small community with gorgeous beaches and incredibly clear-blue water. Playa Uvita is a good place to ride horseback, scuba dive, swim or just go for a walk on its clean sandy beach. The beach is inside the protected area of the park, so hunting any of the marine life is strictly prohibited. Snorkeling and scuba diving are favorite activities as are visits to the mangroves where green marine iguanas, Olive Ridley and Hawksbill turtles gather.
