Élan means enthusiasm, and Bahia Ballena, Whale Bay. This property honors its name. Every detail demonstrates a true appreciation for the flora and fauna that surround the facilities. The condo blends seamlessly with the setting, inviting to explore the forest and ocean. Here you can practice water sports and admire the vivacity of Costa Rica’s preserved areas. Elan is also located within driving distance of one of the country’s most famous attractions, Bahia Ballena. During low tide a beach appears in the shape of a whale’s tail, hence the name of the bay.

Two Worlds in One: Beach & Jungle

The community was built across a secluded part of the Pacific, named Costa Ballena, or Whale Coast. It’s a quiet oasis, away from some of Costa Rica’s most visited spots, like Manuel Antonio. It’s also far from the rush of bigger towns and crowded resorts. However, it offers a unique way of experiencing the Pacific coastline.

Elan Bahia Ballena is encircled by two main settings: the coastal mountains to the east, with their tropical forests; and the sandy beach at the west, with its soft breeze. Elan sits comfortably between the two, with a natural fence made of jungle and sea water. This exclusivity gives guests safe access to Ballena beach. Just walk 3 minutes from the main facilities, across a shaded path, and you’re there.

Even though it is a Blue Flag beach, Ballena usually has few visitors, so there is plenty of space to enjoy the sun and waves. Lounge at one of the hammocks below a coconut tree, or sunbathe at one of the beach chairs. Elan Bahia Ballena also offers kayaks and paddle/surf boards to explore the waters. Swim across the sea and stop to enjoy the sunsets. Three small rocky islands, called Las Tres Hermanas (the Three Sisters), stand a little away from the beach, making for a beautiful sight. When you get tired and head back, stop quickly at the outdoor shower to get rid of any unwanted sand.

However, the beach is not the only experience here. The coastal mountains stretch behind the property, with green gardens and forests also full of energy. Spot beautiful wildlife among the tall, tropical trees. Birdwatchers especially can enjoy the toucans and hummingbirds that pass by, but there are also howler and white-faced monkeys moving across the branches. Even lizards and butterflies make appearances, as do all types of flowers and colors. Truly, at Elan Bahia Ballena you can enjoy Costa Rica’s beauty.
