dolphin/whale watching

Hello,

What is the best place to spot dolphins/whales at the end of July: a boat tour at Golfo Dulce or at Marino Ballena national park ?

Thanks !

Marino Ballena Park in Uvita is a great spot expecially as there are about 10 tour operators doing whale & Dolophine tours. July is the start of the season for whales dolphines are around all year long, have a look at this whale and turtle chart: costaricasbeaches.com/beach-wildlife/…

You can find tour operators in Marino Ballena ddoing tours here: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g635755-s4/Uvita:Cost…

It's a toss-up. The same whales cruise that whole region and more and more frequently even farther north to the Nicoya coast. You've got a good chance at either location.
