Green Season Experiences at Costa Rica’s Kura
Who’s afraid of a little rain? When you hear about all the reasons to visit Costa Rica and Kura during Green Season, you’ll be packing your poncho and booking your stay in no time.
The Return of the Whales
Visiting Costa Rica’s aptly named Whale Coast in Green Season is the best time to witness the humpbacks with their young enjoying the warm tropical waters of the southern Pacific. On a global scale Costa Rica is a hotspot for whale-watching as it represents the northern-most limit for the southern hemisphere whale populations, and the southern-most limit for the whales of the northern hemisphere. What this means is that both groups migrate toward the tropics in their respective winters to mate, breed and bring up their young before making their way back to frigid waters.
Green Season in Costa Rica is the best time for whale-watching in Uvita
If you’re keen to get out to sea for a glimpse of these gentle giants, it’s best to visit from July through October. What’s best is that you won’t have to break the bank to enjoy their spectacular show. To compensate for a little afternoon rain, hotels will be offering complimentary nights and some very tempting promotions.
Kura is lucky enough to have Uvita – Costa Rica’s prime whale-watching destination – as its backyard. Just a 40-minute boat ride out from the shore, the chances of seeing a whale during the season is 95%, and it’s a remarkable experience. Given the size of these mammals, they can easily be spotted from the heights of Kurà too. Guests get very excited to see fin-flapping and jumps from the infinity pool! The hotel provides binoculars in each room and keeps a telescope at the restaurant so guests can explore the surroundings without having to leave paradise.

For more active travelers who prefer an immersive experience, Kurà can organize whale-watching boat tours. Seeing the giant flippers of a mammal that weighs more than 40 tonnes as it jumps out of the water and splashes around by your boats before diving back into the depths is an unforgettable experience worth traveling for.
