Jim and Trisha were absolutely wonderful hosts! The cabina was comfortable, close to the beach, and surrounded by beautiful native plants. I especially liked the front porch hammock where I spent a lot of time. Loved the short walk to the beach down a path covered with hibiscus. The sunrise looking across Golfo Dulce was gorgeous and definitely worth getting...

Very unhappy guest. Driveway is not marked as they claim. No electricity-solar only. Not secluded, the main house is nearby, and another guest house is about 20 feet away and many other homes are within a close proximity. The compost pile is about 10 feet away from the Casa Titi so it smells of garbage. The only internet is at...

I had the privilege of staying at Ola Mar a few nights... and wish I could have stayed longer! It's the perfect rustic yet comfortable spot walking distance to the ocean's edge! It has all the amenities you need -- and is also set in the most beautiful natural surroundings with well-kept flowers, trees and Costa's amazing birds and monkeys....

About the neighborhood
Cabinas Ola Mar is located in the small beachside community of Cabo Matapalo at the southern tip of Costa Rica's Osa peninsula in an area of outstanding natural beauty, where dense tropical rainforest tumbles down through misty hills and valleys onto a rugged coastline of rocky coves, sandy bays and distant headlands to meet the sparkling blue waters of the Golfo Dulce and crashing waves of the pacific ocean. This is the wild side of Costa Rica, one of the last untamed regions in the country, with over 70% of the rainforest still intact. <BR><BR>The peninsula is home to Corcovado National Park, the jewel in the crown of the nation's wildlife and conservation programs. The park encompasses one third of the peninsula and is one of central america's last refuges for th... more

So far the Osa peninsula has escaped the impact of mass tourism, due in part to it's wild and rugged geography. Most of the peninsula is still off the grid and getting here can be an adventure in itself. However, it is getting easier to reach the Osa. Local airlines, Nature Air and Sansa have daily flights from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez and the old access road from Chacarita is being vastly improved, with new bridges and less potholes. Driving time from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez is now down to about six hours, even if you are coming by bus. If you do arrive by public transport you can hire a 4wd right next to the airport or take the collectivo, a covered truck with basic seating in the back. It runs out to Carate twice a...
