Monkeys, birds, butterflies, lizards, and hummingbirds are just some of the delights from the many terrace/patios.

This can be as relaxing or energetic an experience as you yourselves wish. Swimming in our saline pool, or swimming in the ocean. Relaxing with a book on one of our 4 covered terraces or sitting in the open courtyard surrounded by pots of tropical flowers with your morning coffee enjoying the mountain view. Or just a stroll through the Tropical gardens with its numerous palms, exotic fruit trees, there is even an Ylang-Ylang tree right besides the pool.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Ojochal is an International village with many restaurants, grocery stores, bakers, bistros & cafes. The locals are very friendly and helpful, the ex-pat community though wide spread due to homes being on acreage are from England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Canada, and the USA.

We are located in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica and we are within 15 mins of Uvita which has become the commercial area with banks, doctors, dentist, pharmacy, large supermarket and many restaurants. This is where you book for the many tours available.. Just some of the activities nearby include: horseback rides to waterfalls, scuba diving, snorkeling, mangrove boat tours, kayaking, whale and dolphin watching in season, national parks, canopy zip lines, hiking and bird watching.

We are a half hour drive to Dominical, famous for surfing. One hour drive to Manual Antonio Nacional Park. One hour south to Sierpe for the best boat tour into the Mangroves to see wildlife.

Secluded beaches lined only with coconut palms abound closeby. We are positioned on Tortuga Ridge with views of Tortuga (Turtle) Beach 1 km. A long stretch of beach at low tide for delightful walks with caves at one end. 3 km takes you to our favourite swimming spot, Ventana Beach. Every 2 kms there is another beach along the Coastal road which is well paved.

We recomend renting a 4 X 4 vehicle if you wish to explore off road. In the Village the main road is now paved.
We are 3.1/4 hours drive along the beautiful Coastal Road from the San Jose International airport, or should you be interested in taking a small plane we are 20 mins. drive from Palmar Sur's tiny airport which is just a 40 min fabulous flight along the coast from the main International airport in San Jose.

This is truly Paradise.
