Holiday Rental House
From the base of our mountain, Ojochal is just a 20 minute drive north of Osa Mountain Village/Toucan Valley. Rather than suffer through the hot temperatures at sea level, you can stay at 2,000 ft. in elevation up on our mountain, with temps normally 10-15 degrees cooler. We rarely use A/C up here. Our community can be your home base but you can still easily get to the beaches and everything that Ojochal has to offer.

PLEASE READ through this; it includes important directions, various options to get here, and other important information. Prepare yourself for a ‘different’ kind of vacation … Welcome to Toucan Valley at Osa Mountain Village. Our sustainable resort community is tucked away in the jungle at 2,000 ft. in elevation on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, where you’ll sacrifice none of the quality you’d expect in your accommodations. Surround yourself with primary jungle, secondary jungle and wildlife galore. Without question, the wildlife outnumbers the humans here, and you will most certainly feel privileged to be a guest in ‘their’ jungle home. Osa Mountain Village appeals to every spirit. Whether your goal is non-stop adventure or undisturbed, tranquil meditation, we’ve got you covered. Monday and Thursday mornings, you can drop off your basket at our community center to enjoy a bounty of fresh, organic veggies and fruits picked by our gardeners that morning. Did you sleep in and forget? No worries, just go to our gardens and help yourself to what you need. Grab some eggs too. . .a fresh veggie omelet is right for any meal of the day. Now you can sit back, relax, pour a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and enjoy the sounds of nature. With our 750 acres of jungle as your backyard, it doesn’t get any better than this. But consider yourself warned, you will leave a piece of your heart on this mountain. ‘Home’ might not ever be the same. Some folks never go back home, and that’s just fine with us.More

My husband and I had the trip of a lifetime at OMV. We came to celebrate my 60th birthday. The drive up the mountain to the resort was well worth what we experienced at the resort. The views are amazing, from the rain forest to...More
