Tourist & Business Center

By Lani Colucci

Leon and Lani Rome were looking for the perfect tropical place to semi retire and open a business. They explored many countries in Central America but could not agree on one. Costa Rica made their list, and when in 2009 the Coastal Highway opened up, they finally found the perfect compromise.


Their experience was that moving here and building a home required lots of mail, paper work and faxing. The closest place to do all this used to be in Uvita. On a previous trip to Ojochal, Lani found the ideal offices, and in an instant her plan became clear.

THE OJOCHAL TOURISM & BUSINESS CENTER was born. Now they offers first class tourism service in English. Lodgings, car rentals, and tours; it is a full service Business Center, with internet station, office supplies, stationary, electronics, copy and faxing services plus Postal Services from Correos and UPS. Twice a week a computer technician is there to repair your equipment.

As well, they carry a unique line of products from local artisans: handmade jewellery, indigenous masks, paintings, t-shirts, hats, even hot sauces, and organic bug spray and sunscreen.

Today they are very much involved with the Community and are part of initiatives such as the Ojochal Food Bank.

Whether you’re a tourist or local, we have something for everyone, stop in and check us out.
