A year ago, Kurà inspired me to start writing a blog about the best places to eat and travel in Costa Rica. To celebrate the anniversary of my blog, I headed back to Kurà which stayed in my mind for all this time. Three hours of relatively smooth driving and we arrived: There was Kurà again with all it’s splendor and it’s close to heaven setting! Three other couples came along, so we were ready for a perfect weekend getaway from San José. As it was the case during our first visit, the perfectly designed huge villas are amazing with unparalleled views of Bahia Ballena. The food was delicious and healthy and the staff always helpful. Don’t miss the spa, with its great setting and its beautifull always smiling masseuse, Adriana.
The whale watching tour is a must. The hotel can arrange the tours, you can do a four hour tour or request a private one. The best time of year to go whale watching is from August to October, although the Humpbacks due to their migration patterns can be find all year round. This time we were lucky to have Jose David Palacios, a Marine Biologist from Fundación Keto, in our boat. He not only explained valuable info about whales in Costa Rica, but also shared great pictures with me.
I invite you to read my post from last year for more info on Kurà.
Give yourself a great gift for 2015: simply add Kurà to your travel plans, I promise you won’t regret it!
