The return of the Sirens

After their cousins in the South Pacific, it is the turn of the North Pacific whales to visit us in the Golfo Dulce.
Until the end of April, the sirens of the ocean will spawn, put down or raise their calves in the calm and serene waters facing Punta Preciosa.

At the same time, you can watch the whale sharks (the largest fish in the world) and bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops Flipper or for fans of the TV series). And if you’re lucky, a moonless night, take a bath in the middle of bioluminescent plankton, it’s magic.

That water, water everywhere !!!!

October can hardly with a lot of showers and tropical storms, we are in “Temporada Verde” and every evening after a sunny day, we face a deluge of rain …

In recent days, there is conjunction of these storms with a full moon “red” which unleashed the tides. As a result, our little paradise is under water … and Puntarenitas became an island …

???????????????????????????????

Surrounded by water, past the house, the ocean licks the way, behind the mangrove overflows into the garden, and deliver us from heaven when its waterspouts, we keep our fingers crossed that it stays dry.

???????????????????????????????

Small inconvenience when we choose to live in the tropics …

But in a few weeks summer will be back, and soon the month of November everything will be in order: sun, heat, warm sea, calm, and hammock under the palm trees …

???????????????????????????????

Perfect to welcome our future visitors,

And “little wink ‘to our friends who would come to visit, the booking schedule for the season (December to March) fills up fast.

PUNTA PRECIOSA welcomes its first passengers

Last week, we had the great pleasure to welcome our first guest …

We received our first review Airbnb. Thank you to Nicole and her partner, our first guest Airbnb.

We had the pleasure to be the first guests of Pascale and Gilles. They were really great. It is true that this place is a little corner of paradise. The house is very clan and the rooms are luxurious. And the breakfast and the dinner were awesome. Pascale and Gilles did everything to make us feel comfortable. They told us interesting facts about the surrounding, the nature and the animals. In the surrounding are many things to see. The beach is beautiful, the water is calm and there are lots of animals (aras, tukans, whales, dolphins, reys, iguanas, crocodiles, monkeys etc). The house is a bit outside of Puerto Jimenez and the road there is uncomfortable but to live in paradise it is really worth the way. It is possible to go to town by bike (which we got from Pascale and Gilles). All things considered it was an amazing stay, everything was perfect. Nicole

The siren song

The weeks pass quickly and everything speeds up, our little B & B takes shape (and also takes the water. It leaks from the shower on the first floor, into the kitchen … Good to tweak a few settings and everything should return in order). Punta Preciosa be earned …

Waiting to start the decor for several days, we clean, clean, clean, and also récurons …. It left for a ballet buckets, sponges, mops, brooms, all in a very hubbub household.

And then suddenly, like a call away … it comes from the beach, both a mixture of high sounds and sounds of water!

They are there, well … Right there … outside the house.

Here everyone tells his story about his first meeting with them, and every time we have the mouth water. But when our turn come? For months, we expect their visit.

Would not this a myth? The sirens of the Golfo Dulce!

But yes, they are there. It’s magic, I again 5 years, I can not believe my eyes! I even have to wipe a few tears!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for so much emotion

They have multiple names: humpback whales, humpback whales and humpback whales, they are 15 to 17 meters long and weigh around 40 tonnes, but for us, it was the sirens of the Golfo Dulce, and ballet is a real moment of dream .

Thank you to our favorite guide, Tico Haroutiounian for his great pictures.

Wealth to enhance

Puerto Jimenez in Costa Rica, our new home port for several months, is a small community of 5,000 inhabitants. It is surrounded by exceptional natural features. The Golfo Dulce is a haven for whales and dolphins. The Osa Peninsula presented by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense spot on earth”. The peninsula is home to 2.5% of global biodiversity. The Gulf is surrounded by three national parks … Men and women try, with their means, enhance a sustainable way all these treasures. This issue of the Costa Rican national television presents some of these players. (We see very furtively, Gilles at 1.52 minute).
