The Whales Tale, south of Pacific Edge near Uvita, is a rare tombolo, a geologic formation, where sand was deposited at the base of a rocky island over centuries of tides which connected the head to the coast, creating this 'whales tale'. This is the beginning of Ballena Marine National Park, the beaches south of here are all more protected with smaller waves from the reef and rocks offshore.

Several tours are offered, at Hacienda Baru..canopy exploration, with platforms, and ziplines also rainforest experience walks, either with or without guide; there is also the butterfly and orchid gardens; if lucky you may see the turtle egg's hatching, and the turtles being released into the Pacific Ocean there.

or also kayak the mangroves.
