Your Ultimate Guide To Costa Ballena, Costa Rica
Where the mountains meet the sea… We’re proud to call Costa Ballena home, a lush area teeming with palm-fringed beaches, cascading waterfalls and diverse wildlife.
Costa Rica might be small in size, but don’t let that fool you. One of the most biodiverse countries in the world, Costa Rica promises an extensive array of activities for all lifestyles and interests. From consistent warm-water surfing off golden sand beaches to misty rainforest hikes where mesmerizing wildlife abounds to world-class deep-sea fishing trips right in your backyard, the Costa Rica lifestyle is teeming with adventure, wonder, and beauty. It’s this incredibly diverse landscape that makes it possible to live here for years, yet still encounter new magical moments each and every day.
Locals call themselves “Ticos”; our warmth and hospitality have earned us the reputation as “the friendliest people in Latin America.” Spanish is the official language, but English is commonly spoken throughout the country. Pura Vida is more than our motto—it’s a way of life that reflects simplicity, happiness, and well-being. Perhaps surprising to many, Costa Rica has no military, instead choosing to focus its attention on education, healthcare, renewable energy, and preserving its natural beauty.

Tropical Investments went way beyond the call of duty. They were professional, respectful, hard-working, and moreover, very passionate about their work. They even returned my call at 9 PM to discuss and answer my questions that I had about a property that I was interested in. I could tell that they cared about me as a client and wanted me to find the best property possible. Their passion toward their work, they made me feel motivated to work harder as a teacher.
