Accessible via 4WD SUV 2 km up a well-maintained road, Balcón Ballena is in the rainforest amongst monkeys, toucans, parrots, and the sights and the sounds of the jungle. A delightful base for exploring / enjoying the area.

With a 4WD vehicle rental, accessibility was a breeze. Privacy was provided simply by the setting, and further enhanced by the sliding gate. We had beautiful views, plenty of utensils and necessities for cooking. The market is only about ten minutes away and provides whatever you…

The house is close to town and we found the hill climb mentioned in other reviews challenging yet fun with our Vitara 4wd that you can rent easily from Enterprise or the like. After the first few times it becomes pretty easy and we were doing it multiple times a day on occasion…

Beautiful property and surrounding area. Owners and manager are very helpful . Have only good things to say - we had a great time. It’s up on a pretty gnarly hill as most ppl might have mentioned but that’s part of the allure!!
