Can You Keep A Secret?
Perched up in the jungle-covered hills, Kurà overlooks the little village of Uvita and the Marino Ballena National Park. Uvita is distinctly low-profile — this closely guarded secret is famous for its iconic Whale’s Tail sandbar and the migrating pods of Humpback Whales that visit seasonally, 35km of tropical coastline, and a growing, international food scene.
Only 60 minutes south but a world away from Manuel Antonio, Uvita is situated on the stunning South Pacific coast of Costa Rica’s wild Osa. Named “one of the most biologically intense regions on earth” by National Geographic, the area is one of raw, untamed beauty – one still largely unexplored.
A village of waterfalls, wildlife and slow, sustainable living, Uvita offers an authentic slice of the real Costa Rica. From chic eateries and farmers markets to whale-watching, there’s plenty to explore and experience for even the most well-travelled.

“The location of Kura is key. It is high up on a mountain which means fresh breezes all day and night – was much hotter down the mountain. Also, it’s away from the crowds, which is what makes it feel so private, secluded and peaceful. You have lush green rainforest on one side of you, and the most amazing view of the Pacific and Whale’s Tail on the other side. This is our new favorite place.”
