“Magical monkeys, Hibiscus lined trail to the beach, warm welcome from knowledgeable owners.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I stayed at Cabinas Ola Mar in February and was well situated to take advantage of the local sights and amazing beaches.

The property itself is beautiful and peaceful. Flowers, fruit trees, coconuts! I loved chilling out in the hammock watching the monkeys jump from tree to tree, the grass cutter ants wind their trails and macaws fly overhead.

I particularly enjoyed having our own private kitchen to supplement our travel budget and enjoy our own home cooked meals in a relatively remote area.

Gorgeous place, warm owners, home in paradise. Yep!

I had such a Beautiful stay at Cabinas Ola Mar, and can not wait to return! Such care that has been put into this place, and their guests! So much wildlife right out the door of the Cabana I stayed in, easy stroll to the beach, or to the local restaurant/ bar, where locals and tourist gather nightly to mingle, and share stories of their adventures in this Paradise! Highly recommend this place! You will not regret staying here!!!

“Cabinas ola mar is Costa Rica's best kept secret! Shhhh!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

There is a simple elegance to these beautiful cabinas, backdropped by a serene vibe. Arriving at cabinas ola mar, I knew I had found my place in paradise! From the wild sounds of the jungle to the heartbeat of the nearby waves, there really is no better place. Meandering from one secluded beach to the next, hiking to nearby waterfalls.. I especially enjoyed our monkey friends that would make a visit almost every evening to say hello! Thank you so much to Jim for his graciousness and hospitality. I am looking forward to my return! Pura vida and epic waves to you down there!
