Ojochal, Province of Puntarenas
With its nearby beach, gorgeous ocean views, upscale amenities, and secluded location, it's no wonder that Villa Mariposa is once again TripAdvisor's Top Vacation Rental for Ojochal. Again and again, our guests rave about our jungle paradise in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica, and we're sure you'll fall in love with it too.

The spacious poolside terrace is one of the villa's best features. French doors open onto a shaded living area, a separate sun-drenched deck and stunning views of the ocean. With plenty of lounge chairs and natural cooling breezes, it's a restful place to savor your morning coffee, sunbathe, or get caught up in a good book. All the while, you'll be awed by the hummingbirds, Scarlet Macaws, and incredible blue butterflies—just a few of the species that populate the tropical garden and surrou...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Even months after our week at Villa Mariposa, photos of our stay there bring back the tingle of heightened senses. That can’t be said for an all-inclusive. When we turned off the costal highway up the steep road that led to our villa, the changing evening light added to our excitement. The higher we climbed the more I knew our...

Management response:

Thanks so much, Sylvia, for your lovely review and expressing so vividly what it feels like to arrive at the villa for the first time. It captures so well what Ben has told me about guests being so mesmerized by the villa and the view, they don't or can't really hear what he has to share with them, they just...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We wanted to introduce my elderly parents and aunt to this beautiful area of Costa Rica. We stayed in this lovely villa the last week of February 2015. The villa was beautifully laid out with the master suite on one side and the guest bedrooms and jack and jill bath on the opposite side. Two bedrooms open out onto the...

Management response:

Thanks for your review Kathi, so good to hear you enjoyed your multi-generational family vacation and you could share the wonderful experience of Costa Rica with your elderly parents. We are so thankful we decided to build the villa all on one level with no stairs. That was not the original plan. This way it makes it so easy to...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 24 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

My wife and I stayed for a week during Dec 2014. This villa has all of the amenities (internet, kitchen (well stocked with kitchenware), comfortable bathrooms, beautiful swimming pool, artistic obelisk shower, terrace with fans, and gated property). Lots of birds and Blue Morpho butterflies visit the various flowers and trees. Howler monkeys were heard in the distance. Make sure...

Management response:

Thank you for your review of Villa Mariposa. I am so glad you enjoyed all the amenities and your time at the villa. Just to clarify, while you may sometimes see clouds on the mountain above the villa in early December, we are surrounded by a rainforest, not a cloud forest which is actually different ecosystem in Costa Rica at...

How to get there
The south Pacific coast is renowned for its dramatic landscapes where the mountains meet the ocean. This is the real Costa Rica with the gorgeous and secluded Ventanas Beach only 10 minutes from the Villa Mariposa and the village of Ojochal with international restaurants and all the amenities all within 15 minutes. Located 30 minutes south of Dominical and 25 minutes north of the Palmar Sur airstrip on the picturesque and well paved Costanera highway. You can fly into the international airport in San Jose and take the scenic 3 hour drive or take a 30 minute scenic flight over the mountains and along the coast to Palmar Sur airstrip. From there we can arrange to have a 4x4 rental waiting for you and then drive the 25 minutes to Villa Mariposa. There are additional daily flights to Quepos... more
