Whales, Dolphins, Turtles oh my.... Ecotourism and Sunset Cruises


This past weekend had us donning our snorkeling gear and setting sail on a sunset escapade with the marvelous crew from Exclusive Tours Costa Rica. These guys are like the superheroes of excursions in the Hermosa/Coco area. We also are proud to work with the crew at Kuna Vela. Both very high end experiences.


Now, in the playbook of Costa Rica's quirks, one thing is clear: sunsets are the stars of the nature shows here. Seriously, it's like the whole country gets together every evening and shouts, "Lights, camera, action!" But during the rainy season, these sunsets go into overdrive, cranking up the dazzle factor like a Taylor Swift concert. The rainclouds sweep in, throw a little color party in the sky, and suddenly you're questioning if you've accidentally stumbled into Pandora.




Now, picture this: you're not just standing on the shore, watching this visual fiesta. You're on a boat, bobbing gently in the water, and the sky's masterpiece is being reflected right back at you on the waves. It's like being invited to the VIP section of the cosmic art gallery. And you're not just an attendee; you're practically in the painting. This isn't your run-of-the-mill tour; it's more like an immersion into the pages of a dreamy travelogue. Here at Mango Baby Beach, we're like matchmakers, setting you up with the best boat operators (and any other adventure you fancy) all over this spellbinding land. Our motto: your dream adventure, powered by our insider knowledge.



But wait, let's dive into the marine carnival that's unfolding beneath the surface. It's that time of year when whales are migrating from their Alaskan digs to that Pura Vida life in Costa Rica's oceanic hotspots. These gentle giants have basically turned our coastal waters into their vacation spot, occasionally popping baby whales out along the way. And then there are the sea turtles, those underwater Casanovas, swiping right in search of love. The male turtles? They're the ones with the major league claws, using them to serenade and mount the ladies during their aquatic rendezvous. It is the time of year where seeing turtles is normal, and seeing turtles doing the no pants dance is very normal. Two giant creatures with their houses on their backs, rolling around in the middle of the ocean making babies. It's beautiful. And if that's not enough to entertain, enter the dolphins – the life of the aquatic party – are center stage. These underwater acrobats are like the dolphins' version of "America's Got Talent." They'll splash, flip, and charm you out of your snorkeling mask.



Each boat operator has their own groove, their own style of sailing. From catamarans to sailboats, they're like the DJs of the ocean. Costa Rica's coast isn't just rich (wink) in beach variety; it's like a gourmet buffet of beaches – from easy-access sands to hidden gems only reachable by boat or a spirited hike. So, whether you're craving solitude or seeking adventure, the coastal menu's got your name on it. And if I can offer one piece of advice for your Costa Rican adventure, it's this: indulge in the nightly symphony of colors. But for a next-level experience, catch this dazzling show from a boat on the water. It's like upgrading your front-row seats to the celestial concert of sunset magic. Trust me, your Instagram feed will thank you. Pura Vida, my fellow seekers of the extraordinary!
