The keys to unlocking Costa Ballena
Where can I get a sense of the community vibe?

Every Saturday morning, local artisans, bakers and produce growers gather for the weekly Farmer’s Market, held on the grounds of El Rincon de Uvita, a recreational and commercial center located in Uvita. From 8:00am to 1:00pm, local artisans display their wares, including handmade jewelry, clothing, souvenirs and crafts. On the culinary side, the aroma of homemade jams, jellies, salsa and bread fill the air, while local farmers deliver organic vegetables, chickens, fresh eggs and much more.

The community vibe is rife, with both expats and locals being represented on both sides of the negotiations. Local vendors sit side by side with expat residents from Italy, France, Germany the U.S. and Canada, who are equally represented at the tables.
