Can I write an epub ebook in two languages?

Is it possible to write an ebook in .epub format in two languages ?
I mean one page in English and the other in Spanish.

No not really since epubs don't have "pages" per se, the text is designed to be re-flowable where the device or software formats the text to fit on the available screen space based on screen size/font size, the first being device dependent the second being user selectable.

you could kind of get the same effect but it would only work correctly with one screen/font size.

You can add the two texts as separate files ("chapters") and add links between them. See this book for an example.
