LOOKING FOR SLOTHS
Sloths could be anywhere, but try looking in Hacienda Baru Wildlife Refuge.
SURFING, SWIMMING, BEACH WALKING
Driving 15 - 20 minutes north or south of Pacific Edge, you will encounter
at least a dozen beaches, some very isolated. Some with World Class Surf, such as
Dominical, Dominicalito, Punta Dominical point break, and Playa Hermosa.
The Whales Tale, south of Pacific Edge near Uvita, is a rare tombolo, a geologic
formation, where sand was deposited at the base of a rocky island over centuries
of tides which connected the head to the coast, creating this 'whales tale'.
This is the beginning of Ballena Marine National Park, the beaches south of here are
all more protected with smaller waves from the reef and rocks offshore.
This is where the Humpback Whales migrate to have their babies from both the
north and south hemisphere, twice a year.

several ecosystems, including mangrove swamps to primary rainforest. A safe haven
for Monkeys, Sloths, Ocelots,Jaguarundis, Anteaters, Kinkajous, Tyras,
