Vista Ballena & The Hart Center - More than a place to stay!



More than a location, a place to enjoy



Vista Ballena hotel, perched in the hills of Costa Rica’s wild southern coast, is more than a tropical resort. Here, in the world’s most ecologically diverse setting, you will discover nature’s hidden treasures and sustenance for the soul.

Our 20 room hotel is set high among the mountainous jungles of Costa Ballena. Enjoy exquisite views of the “Whale’s Tail” sandbar as it extends into the warm ocean waters and witness humpback whales cresting as they pass.

Surrounded by lush rainforest and pristine coral-lined beaches, Vista Ballena is a place of solace and discovery in an otherwise untouched land.

Paradise after all, is not just a destination, it is what stirs inside us when we set our eyes on the sublime wonders and wisdom of the natural world.
