Costa Rica is known around the world for its abundant biodiversity, it also tops the lists for countries with the happiest people in the world. Ballena Coast is sure to live up to this expectation and continuously surprise you with its wildlife, scenery, cuisine, wonderful year-round weather and kindness of its people.


The Ballena Coast has become recently recognized as the “Culinary Capital of Costa Rica”. An exceptional mix of international cuisine with local dishes offers everyone unique alternatives to tease their palates. You can literally enjoy a different dining experience every occasion you decide to step out and check out the local fare. CENTURY 21 Ballena Properties have included a few of the restaurants here in this section, but there are many more to add. We will be updating our Dining section often and will also offer some first-hand “reviews” to keep you informed. Please come back often to the dining section.


One thing the Ballena Coast has plenty of is “water”. The Great Pacific Ocean, the diverse river systems and connecting waterways unleash unlimited possibilities to enjoy every type of water sport imaginable. CENTURY 21 Ballena Properties will be adding information to this section as we move forward to make sure our clients and friends in the community have the latest news on “Water Sport” activities and events.

Sport fishing has been key to Costa Rica’s healthy tourist industry since the 1970s, as thousands upon thousands of avid anglers have flocked to this country to take advantage of one of the world’s great billfish bites.

Although Quepos has long been the principal sport fishing destination for fishing many of the larger boats based there will often travel 35 miles south from the new Pez Vela Marina toward the incredibly rich fishing grounds off the Furuno Bank when the bite is on.

For those who relish lots of action the rich inshore fishing all along the Ballena Coast will yield several species of tasty Snapper, including Red and Cubera; Grouper; Amberjack; Mackerel; Corvina (Sea Bass); and when the tide and weather are right, Snook. Game fish enthusiasts can also fish inshore for Roosterfish; a 40lb Rooster will usually give you more fight than a 110lb Sailfish!

At CENTURY Ballena Properties we can arrange a Sport fishing adventure with our hand-picked charter company who has more than 20 years’ experience organizing sport fishing charters and complete sport fishing vacations in Costa Rica.
