Hotel El Mono Feliz is situated in the middle of nature: in the garden there are big palmtrees, pineapple plants for breakfast and beautiful fragrant flowers. This family hotel has cabañas (apartments) and rooms. The cabañas have a kitchenette. On the terrace you can relax quietly enjoying the shade of the palmtrees. Take a dip in the Mono Feliz swimming pool.

The rooms are cozy, with a door to the porch or the garden. Breakfast is served on the large porch with fresh tropical fruit. Here is also a kitchen where you can cook for youself, but in fact that will not be necessary. In Ojochal are – surprisingly! – very fine restaurants!

In the jungle garden, near the river, are the cabañas: apartments for two or four persons. The cabañas have one or two bedrooms with ceiling fan, bathroom with hot and cold water and a living/kitchenette. On the terrace you can sit nice and quiet in the shade of the beautiful palm trees.

The rooms are simple but cosy, with a door leading to the porch or the garden. All the room’s have a ceiling fan and a bathroom with hot and cold water. There are rooms with a double bed, plus a room with two single beds. The rooms have a private bath.

There is also the Combi-room, with two bedrooms, each with a double bed. These bedrooms share a bathroom, so the Combi-room is especially suitable for families.

On the large porch breakfast is served with fresh tropical fruit. For lunch and dinner our guests can make use of the kitchen on the porch, but there are also a lot of excellent restaurants in Ojochal.

Location: Hotel El Mono Feliz is situated in the small village of Ojochal de Osa (Playa Tortuga). It is 32 kms south of Dominical, in the unspoilt nature of southern Costa Rica. Turn off the coastal highway into Ojochal and then follow the signs.

There is a lot to do in the rather undiscovered southern part of Costa Rica. From Hotel El Mono Feliz you can make a very special tour to the Indian village of Boruca, where you can buy beautiful wood carvings and woven cloth. Hacienda Barú Reserve and Corcovado National Park are also close by. A little bit further out at sea is Caño Island, a fine spot for snorkling and scuba diving. There is the Río Térraba where you can enjoy kayak tours through the mangrove forests. Also there are boat tours through the mangroves of the river Sierpe where you will spot crocodiles, monkeys, birds and many other Costa Rica wildlife. There are several waterfalls if you need a cooling down.

Of course relaxing on the nearby beach is also possible
