Terrazas de Ballena is a boutique hotel nestled in the jungle hills overlooking Uvita and the “Whale’s Tail”, in Marino Ballena National Marine Park. The luxuriously-natural eco-hotel has just 3 suites, with amenities like a swimming pool, high speed internet, daily housekeeping, complimentary breakfast, kitchenette, in room massage service, driver-for-hire service, and grocery delivery.

The Uvita area is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, and blessed with a low number of annual tourists, making it an ideal getaway. The community consists mostly of luxurious hotels and resorts, with many options for sophisticated adventures like sunset cruises, scuba diving, snorkeling, dolphin and whale watching, kayaking, rain forest zip lining, beach horseback rides, and jungle hikes. Since wildlife by far out numbers the humans here, bird watching and nature hikes are sure to be very rewarding.
