Location: Located in Uvita, a district in the region of Osa, 18 km south of the crossroads of Dominical, continuing on the Coastal Route.

Description: At just 700 meters of Uvita Beach, Hotel Canto Ballenas offers a homely and relaxing atmosphere, perfect to enjoy an excellent beach vacation. Located on a 10 hectare property, it completely blends in with the surrounding nature, since it was built with wood from plantations, contributing to the conservation of natural forests. Also, here you will have the opportunity to observe the Humpback Whale (Megaptera Novaengiae). This combination makes it an irresistible destination.

The lodge is managed by the cooperative COOPEUVITA R.L., therefore the community actively participates in kitchen, cleaning, reception and maintenance activities. Canto de Ballenas is set up in three modules of four rooms each, which adds up to a maximum capacity of 40 guests.

How to get there: From the bridge over Uvita River, 750 meters west, first entry to Uvita Beach, Marino Ballena National Park.
