About Dominical

Dominical is one of the most beautiful locations of Puntarenas, the capital and also the biggest city of Costa Rica. Dominical is a pioneer in terms of adventure tourism; here you can go zip lining, riding, climbing, rafting, paragliding, surfing, diving, take tours to underground caves and take part in many other adrenaline filled activities. Dominical draws thousands of tourists every year with its waterfalls, caves, mountains, and hiking tracks, and is much more economic compared with Puntarenas when it comes to dining and accommodation.  

Close to Dominical town centre, Marino Ballena National Park is one of the most visited places in this area. You can go for daily excursions here, where there are also special tours to see whales from the coast 9 months out of the year.  You can witness the magical moment where whales from the North and South Hemispheres meet by joining one of the whale watching tours organised by the park.
