Cristal Ballena

The four-star Cristal Ballena sits on the southern Pacific coast, on Playa Ballena. Here you will find the Ballena Marine National Park, just outside of the small village of Uvita. This breathtaking national park is an important breeding ground for the Humpback Whale and is excellent for turtle watching. This coastal region has outstanding beaches, several of which are situated within the national park.

Uvita

Playa Uvita is a two mile white sand beach with crystal waters that is ideal for swimming and water sports. Also a worthwhile place to explore is the nearby Cano Island where you will find a spectacular beach and inshore coral reef. Whether you are seeking adventure, leisure or pure relaxation, this area offers something for everyone. Surfing, horseback riding, scuba diving and kayaking through mangroves are just a few enticing options. For divine tranquility, throw down a blanket, close your eyes and be lulled by the sound of the ocean waves.

The hotel's thirty acres are designed with winding paths through a small park and hotel grounds. Bird watchers will get a kick out of the variety of bird species and families of Toucans that come at close viewing range. During the day, lounge at the huge 400 square meter pool situated in the immense garden area on the hill between the Pacific Ocean and the rainforest covered mountains. Conveniently located next to the pool is the "Pura Vida' Cafe and restaurant offering international fare and delicious beverages. End your day at the Temple of Relaxation with an outstanding massage.

The Cristal Ballena offers 14 spacious, connectable Junior Suites, 3 Master Suites and 2 Family Suites, all with a balcony and outrageous ocean views. The 2 charming Adventure Lodges are situated in colorful gardens 200 meters away from the main hotel's facilities, surrounded by exuberant tropical forest. Each lodge is complete with a terrace, tiled bathroom, king size bed, electricity and ceiling fan and are suitable for birdwatchers and nature lovers.
