    About

    When visiting Ballena, Hotel Resort & Spa Cristal Ballena is a great choice to consider. You can visit the spa to indulge in deep-tissue massages, body scrubs, or aromatherapy, and international cuisine is served at Pura Vida, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. An outdoor pool and a poolside bar are other highlights, and rooms at this romantic resort offer up nice touches like Tempur-Pedic beds with premium linens.
