Go there every year! Tried many places, but return to this one. Love the very welcoming atmosphere, the owner, Nico, is authentic and real. Helpful, fun and a fabulously creative cook. My partner and I are foodies, and it was a pleasure to relish great food done with passion and care. She uses locally grown herbs and spices, adds twists...

Although the week spent in the junglesque cabana was in an open air and well kept room, and the howlers were abundant, there are many things about this location that you should be aware of prior to booking. 1. The "beach" is horrible- two words that should never appear together! DO NOT go to this location expecting sand and swimming,...

This place has the most beautiful open air villas in a jungle paradise! You are so removed from the world - the only internet access is available for a short time over breakfast when a phone with internet signal can be paired to check a few emails. We absolutely loved sleeping in the villas with only mosquito nets separating us...

I have been to many all inclusive resorts, so I was a little nervous heading to an eco lodge in the jungle when my friend and I first booked our trip. I was worried about creepy crawlies, as well as being off the grid without electricity or wifi for a week. I have to say,I enjoyed my experience at Ojo...

We stayed 4 nights at Ojo del Mar and it is a wonderful place with incredible atmosphere. The EcoLodge is in a brilliant location surrounded by beauty and nature and right on the beach. The lodges are very private and thoughtfully and beautifully designed amongst the trees, they are really spaced out and discretely placed so you feel like you're...

Our visit to Ojo del Mar was perfection beyond anything I could have imagined. Situated on the end of the Osa Peninsula, the eco-lodge provided us with the vacation of a lifetime. Nico and her crew made us feel like we were family, providing us with the most delicious breakfasts and dinners and everything we needed in between. She was...

This was one of the best places I have ever stayed. Nico made us feel as if we friends coming to stay at her home. She helps you at every turn.

Lovely designed cabinas with an open view in the rainforest of Cosa Rica. Sleeping with a unique surrounding and directly at the beach. Monkeys, Toucans and all kind of beautiful birds are passing right above you - no wildlife tours are necessary :) Nico is the most wonderful host and her food is heavenly !

We entered as strangers and left as family. The hospitality of Nico and Mark was inspiring and the beauty of the grounds unmatched. Every meal was unique and delicious. The surrounding area is truly magical. Do yourself a favor and contact Nico now, you can thank yourself later.

If you are looking to experience a few days in paradise then this is the place for you. Unlike anywhere I have ever stayed before, Ojo Del Mar truly connects you with life on the Osa Peninsula.
