Whale watching in Puerto Jiménez?

How easy is it to see whales in Puerto Jiménez in Feb.? Do you have to go to Cano Island to see them?

Thanks!!

One of the best places to se whales is in Marino Ballena National park (Ballena = whale), they come to the park to reproduce and give birth. Another spot is off the coast of Drake Bay, Cano Island not too good for whales but great for snorkling and scuba.

You can find whales in all seas but Puerto Jimenez is not the best spot for whales in Costa Rica lots of other atractions there but if whales is what you are after your best bet is either of the two locations above.

For better whale watching, head to Drake Bay. Puerto Jimenez is not the best place because of how it is situated on the Golfo Dulce. Uvita, as mentioned by Thomas is also a good choice.
