My son and I stayed for 8 days at Ojo Del Mar during green season , and all I can say to everyone that asks that we had the most wonderful time. We loved sleeping in the open air cabins with just moskito nets separating us from the jungle. The animal life is unbelievable, just sitting at the pool we saw scarlet macaws, toucans, 3 types of monkeys, an anteater and a sloth ... It's a intimate affordable ecolodge in the truest sense. The place is put together and run with a lot of care and attention. Jordan, the manager, was extremely welcoming and always had an interesting story to tell about wildlife and the area. He and the staff organized excursions, yoga classes, massages (excellent!), gave directions, dispensed advice and served us great food and drinks! The grounds are beautiful with great bamboo architecture, only a few steps from the beach. All of us absolutely loved the breakfast , which is healthy and plenty. There are not many places that I can say that every minute we spend was magical! If you are thinking of going to the Osa Peninsula - Ojo Del Mar is the place!
