Uvita condo description

Makara Suites is a boutique luxury destination located on the lush southern Pacific Coastline. Rolling from the jungle and the dramatic Costeña Mountains to the beautiful Ballena Beach is the home of Makara. You can hear the ocean waves in the morning, see toucans at mid-day and watch a whale jump from the ocean while listening to howler monkeys in the afternoon. Soothe your senses to the gentle flow of the river which runs along the property for a beautiful sunset walk.

Makara is a three minute walk from One of the most breathtaking beaches in Costa Rica, Playa Ballena whose sandy crescent is Makara’s backyard and is also part of The Marina Ballena National Park.The largest coral reef in the central pacific lies just off shore, nestled between the islands of Tres Hermanas and Ballena Island. Here the rainforest extends right to the edge of the beach creating a dramatic contrast, unique to this area of the world.

A five minute drive north or south will bring you to grocery stores, shops, restaurants and any other services you might require.

In Uvita, five minutes north, a sandbar and coral reef in the shape of a Whale’s Tail create the country’s first gateway to the protected marine park for migrating humpback whales.

Each apartment includes 1 or 2 bedrooms, a living area and a large covered terrace. The private bathrooms come with an oversize shower and bathtub. They feature a full kitchen with a refrigerator and dining table, and all rooms have air conditioning.
