Ojochal – Bahía Ballena, Costa Ballena, Costa Rica

Ojochal a Large Park and an Amazing Gastronomic Experience!

Ojochal in Osa is named after the “Ojoche” tree, also known as the tree of life, as you can use it from root to leaf. Just 15 years ago, one would not believe that the land was barren, completely cut down and used as cattle pasture, it was not the lush forest we know it as today. These days, Ojochal is home to various works of living art, as many homeowners take pride in their manicured and fruitful gardens.

It is hands down, the Culinary destination of the South Pacific. With fine dining ranging from Mediterranean to Indonesian, you are sure to find a great meal. Reserve in advance as people travel from as far as Jacó to dine in a jungle atmosphere. Since a man does not live on bread alone, we recommend you sample some food for your dreams, try a horseback tour through the village and the rivers heading to the mountains where Mrs. Elida will welcome you when you arrive at the Ojochal waterfalls. You can spend the night in a cabin near the river, hike during the day through the well-preserved nature, and in the evening, your horse will come to pick you up again and take you to enjoy the beautiful sunset.

SOMOS (We Are): Building Resilient Communities

Initiatives Lack of resources and infrastructure are most noticeable in two ways. One feels quaint, excited and, at times, adventurous. The other is frustrating and causes genuine concern.
