The Magic House in Ojochal as seen on House Hunters International
This bungalow is located in an area of luxurious vegetation and benefits from a comfortable climate year round. Nature is truly plentiful. Birds of innumerable species, enchanting sound of crickets or cicadas, beautiful butterflies enhance the murmur of the river. Flowers blossom and change their colors in harmony with the movement of the sun.
The wonderful fragrence emanating from a wide variety of fruit trees accompanies every one of your moves. The beaches, where the turtles lay their eggs, are less than 10 minutes away. The waters of the central Pacific Ocean are warm and gentle, dying peacefully on miles of soft sand.
Whether you are retired or retiring, seeking new business challenges, or simply searching out the pura vida lifestyle, living in or near the village of Ojochal, you will experience restaurants featuring “jungle cuisine” at it´s finest … all with a Traditional, European or North American flair. A few kilometers further north is the emerging new commercial center of Uvita. Uvita combines services such as banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, business centers, hair salons, service stations and a medical center, while retaining a sleepy “beach and jungle” atmosphere. In between Ojochal and Uvita, you will find Marino Ballena National Park, which boasts some of Costa Rica´s most beautiful, unspoiled and pristine beaches and protected natural areas.
Plus in Ojochal, Ventanas Beach and Tortuga Beach are in your own back yard. No private beaches here … the beaches are the property of the people.
Farther south on the Costanera Sur Highway, you´ll find the site of an 18 hole golf course (9 holes are currently completed and open for operation) in San Buenas, and two more traditional commercial centers in the towns of Cortes and Palmar. The brand new hospital is located in Cortes (a 10 minute drive) and a regional airport is located in Palmar (a 20 minute drive). A new international airport has been approved and sanctioned by the Costa Rican government and construction will begin in the near future at a determined location south of Palmar. It will service the entire Southern Zone including Corcovado, Golfito and Drake Bay.
