Pacific humpback whales, who migrate annually passing Costa Rica, are farthest-migrating​ animals on Earth. They cover the distances of 5,000 to 8,000 km twice a year. During December–April, you can see whales from Alaska, and August–November they come from Antarctica.

The best spots to watch whale in Costa Rica are Marino Ballena National Park with the famous Whale Tail Beach, Drake Bay down the Osa Peninsula, and Golfo Dulce off the shores of Puerto Jimenez.
