The keys to unlocking Costa Ballena
Where can I light my fire in contrast to Costa Ballena’s most tranquil experiences?

Despite Costa Rica’s reputation as a tranquil retreat in the lap of Mother Nature, the annual Best Fest raises the volume just a tad for a few days each February. Best Fest is an international music festival that has made its home along the shores of Marino Ballena National Park, adding inspirational fuel to the musical fire over the course of a fun-filled weekend. Best Fest serves up international and local music at its best, with live performances beginning at 4:00pm and running until 2am. However, for those who are just getting started when the lights of the big stage go down, local after-parties only kick off after midnight and will ensure that you can get your groove on into the wee hours of the morning.

General admission to Best Fest can be purchased as a single or three-day pass, while a VIP option provides access to a private bar, bathrooms and an outdoor lounge. The event’s ambiance also stirs up a kind of Costa Rican Woodstock spirit, marked by an annual procession of campers who flock to a designated camping area next to the venue for a weekend of music and celebration in the embrace of paradise.
