La Resort Ballena 'The Whale Resort' is a large beachfront resort style home located on the edge of Canaza, a small town just near Puerto Jimenez. The home is in the Osa Peninsula, and backs up to the Golfo Dulce, where one of the natures most interesting phenomenon's occur, and literally right here in our own backyard. The Humpback Whales take a three month journey from Alaska heading to the Golfo Dulce as they seek refuge from their only natural predictor, The Orca, to safely bear their young.
