About our home

Our modern, spacious, open concept home is located walking distance to the Ballena National Park in a complex of three homes. The house is surrounded by a tropical garden and is steps away to a pool shared by the three homes. Numerous species of birds abound, and we are a short drive away from waterfalls and wildlife-rich rain forest reserves.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

A 10-15 minute walk brings you to Ballena National Park, home of the famous Whale’s Tail, good for swimming and the jumping off point for whale and dolphin watching boat tours as well as sea kayaking excursions. Simple beachfront cafes line the road at the park entrance. In the other direction a supermarket is a 10-15 minute walk, along with a small shopping strip with a great local restaurant, a pharmacy and medical clinic. The center of Uvita is a five minute drive, and has restaurants, bank, supermarket, a handicrafts shop, and bus terminal. Two farmers markets operate weekly.

Buzzy restaurants
Mostly simple beach-style places but varied cuisines including Costa Rican, Mexican, Texan barbecue and pizza. Nearby towns about 15 minutes’ drive have French, Asian and Continental restaurants.
Cozy cafés
Simple Costa Rican “sodas” serving strong coffee and fresh fruit drinks are all over. Uvita claims a good coffee shop for espresso drinks and good pastries.
Spot of exercise
Sea kayaks and paddle boards are rented at the park entrance. Hikes to beautiful waterfalls are a short drive away. Zip lining and tree climbing activities, as well as guided hikes, are offered at a private reserve 15 minutes’ drive away.
Day tripping
Manuel Antonio National Park, and guided trips to Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula.
