I stayed here for a yoga retreat over the Christmas holiday season. It is such a calm, peaceful and relaxing place to stay with great quiet open concept facilities. There is nothing like waking up each day to both the sound of the ocean and the jungle. It is conveniently located half way between Puerto Jimenez and Corcovado National Park... More

Two of my friends and I decided to travel here based on our research of eco-tourism spots in Costa Rica. We had such a great time staying with our lovely hosts, Nico and Mark. Their friendliness and hospitality truly made us feel right at home in the tropical rain forest. There were so many activities to choose from, but we... More

Good thing we reserved well in advance as we came over the Christmas holiday and it was fully booked. Costa Rica is not known for it's cuisine and this was a wonderful exception. Nico is a terrific chef and dinner (an extra charge of 19.00USD per person) was fresh, local and delicious. They know all the local guides and adventures... More

This place is awesome. I am a backpacker/budget traveler, so this was my one splurge for December, and so glad I did it. The bamboo cabins are fantastic. You are at the tip of the Osa Peninsula, in an area called Matapalo, which is really special place. There are other eco lodges here, but most cost double or triple. There... More

What a fantastic vacation! This place sends you right back to your childhood fantasies of what it would be like to live on a really civilized Gilligans Island! The food is delicious and healthy, the cabins are handmade, and comfy, and Amazing, and I loved listening to all the jungle sounds at night! The surfing is great there, best massage... More

Wow - the perfect spot for the ultimate pura vida experience! What a magical oasis Nico and Mark have created in the pristine wilderness that is Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. My husband and I spent 8 wonderful days at Ojo del Mar with a group of friends and had a truly magical, one-of-a-kind experience. Mark is a very talented and... More

My friend and I spent four amazing days soaking up Ojo del Mar's soothing ambience. We loved sleeping in an open-air cabin with the sound of the ocean. The property is beautifully constructed with bamboo, thatch huts and other natural materials. The breakfasts are delicious. I spent most of my stay there in a hammock, listening to the waves, reading... More

On our tour through the south of Costa Rica my boyfriend (23) and I (21) "accidentally" found this beautiful place. When I first walked through the property to check out the tent that was offered to us to spend the night in I was fascinated by the beauty, the peace and the "silence" of nature which directly touched my soul....

My husband and I and our daughters (ages 19 and 22) stayed at Ojo del Mar five nights over the Christmas holiday. We were intrigued with the place via the website, and the reality far exceeded our expectations! From morning monkey serenades and yoga, to tropical birds at every turn, to basking on the beach, to organic, made-from-scratch dinners, we... More
