    Beautiful yoga studio in the heart of the jungle in Ojochal. You will be welcomed by the warm, funny and attentive Catherine and her band of regulars. Classes here were a highlight of my trip, and that says a lot!

    Cascada El Pavon is a beautiful waterfall just outside of Ojochal. From the highway turnoff, it is approximately 2kms to the falls. Like most secondary roads in CR it is bumpy but drivable. Parking is on the side of the road. There is no entrance fee. The hike down to the falls is short and easy. The area is shaded and cool, the water warm and the natural pool inviting.
    There is a restaurant and tilapia fish farm across the road from the waterfall called ‘Cabinas y Restaurante Tilapias La Cascada’. We strolled around the fish farm grounds which is quite pretty on its own. Unfortunately, we did not have time to eat at the restaurant. The tilapia dish looks amazing.

    We spent the day on a wonderful adventure with MCEC snorkelling while others were scuba diving around Cano Island. We saw turtles, stingrays, tropical fish starfish. Our young guide had excellent english skills and took us around the coral reefs. The boat is very comfortable, food was excellent and perfect for a vegan such as myself. The team speaking French, English and of course Spanish is most friendly. It was a great learning day! Next time we will bring our Padi cards.

    Had an amazing time! It was really well organized (Axel answered all my questions with tons of info ahead of time) and a lovely trip. The river and mangroves tour was just long enough and the bonus waterfall excursion was a great, refreshing perk! Axel's a super fun (fully bilingual!) guide with tons of knowledge of the mangroves and Costa Rica. And he has a great eye to spot wildlife! ++The individual fruit Tupperware is a really nice touch!

    Stam Cafe was our favorite discovery in Ojochal! Great beer selection and Sendra the owner knows her beer and is so very warm and friendly. We had a fun evening chatting with her.

    Back in 2010, my husband and I booked a day to snorkel with Kumari. It was my first time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So when I had a chance to go out to Isla Cano with Kumari to snorkel a second time last week, I booked a spot. Although the day started with lots of rain, it did not affect visibility, nor our enjoyment of the sea world. I saw more fish and a big turtle this time out. Kumari attends to all the details, brought lots of food and had insulating tops to keep us warm on the boat and while we snorkelled (thank goodness). This business operator works hard while we play! This was a full day and I can assure you, I slept like a baby that night. Next time I am back in Ojochal, I plan to take scuba diving lessons and get certified with Kumari.

    Simon from Atípico Costa Rica helped me with Car Hire and gave us some fantastic advice for our recent trip to Costa Rica. He is very professional, thoughtful, kind, efficient and helpful! Highly recommend this great local company!

    We had a wait for our table at a nearby restuarant, so we stopped in for drinks. The selection was amazing, the atmosphere at the bar was charming, and the owner was so friendly. We had a wonderful experience. I'm glad we had to wait to be seated for dinner at the restaurant, simply so that we could experience this lovely location. Stop by for a drink, you'll be glad you did!

    Rough road in a rental car! Better to enter from main highway. However the Bamboo Room is worth the journey
