With the arrival of August, Quepos is ready for the sighting of whales and dolphins that travel great distances to the national Pacific, striking activity for the tourism industry since it causes the arrival of a large number of visitors.
In August, whales start migrating. This is a method of survival for many species and the geographical position of Costa Rica allows us to witness the phenomenon.
The watching season is a great opportunity for the entire tourism sector in Costa Rica, as thousands of visitors are coming to appreciate the grandeur to these animals who visit us in a natural pilgrimage every year,”
said Jeff Duchesneau, manager of Marina Pez Vela.
In Costa Rica, humpback whales are the most outstanding, and according to representatives of the tourism sector, they come here because they can mate or give birth in peace, without threats of predators.
The period of whale and dolphin watching in Costa Rica will extend until October.
