includes several fabulous beaches and Las Tres Hermanitas islands only 12 km south taking about a 15 minute drive from of Casa Ramon. Ballena means “whale” in Spanish and the park exhibits a very mystical land formation of a “whale’s tail” that is visible at low tide. The park is also a reproduction site for humpback whales during Costa Rica’s winter months from Sept – Nov. At low tide you will spot an unusual green iguana that feeds on marine algae. The cliffs around the park’s coastline are nesting ground for frigate birds and the sea earwig.
If you prefer to drive yourself it's an easy road to the Ballena Reserve. Casa Ramon can prepare you a special picnic lunch for your pleasure (at an additional cost).
