Eat, Explore and Experience
Our best picks to make the most of your trip.
The local area around Villas en el Bosque has a wealth of things to see and do. Below are some of our favourites. We look forward to hosting you and recommending even more amazing local attractions on our doorstep.
Visit a Majestic National Park
The Marino Ballena National Park is only a 15 minute drive from our hotel and offers visitors incredible landscapes, magical waterfalls, and the chance to partake in Whale and Dolphin watching tours.
Go Whale & Dolphin Watching
A visit to Ojochal wouldn’t be complete without taking a Pacific boat trip to catch sight of some Humpback whales ( only during the season July until October) , dolphins, beautiful marine birds, sea turtles and more. Snorkelling and cave exploring are also must-do’s.
Take a Surf Lesson
We think we live on the most beautiful ocean in the world and there is no better way to experience it than first hand. There are some excellent local surf schools in the area which offer beginner and intermediate level lessons. They will make sure you learn surfing skills according to your level.
A Breathtaking Waterfall
Cascada Pavon is a hidden gem of a waterfall only 10 minutes from Villas en el Bosque. Enjoy pristine waters, and a wonderful quiet spot for a swim. Just float and enjoy the sights and sounds!
The closest beach to Villas en el Bosque, Playa Tortuga, means “Turtle Beach” in Spanish, is located a short way away from our hotel. It’s main attraction is its abundant wildlife and scenery. Magnificent mountains and lush vegetation surround the sparkling ocean and up to 450 species of birds, marine turtles, whales and dolphins amongst a host of other animals can be found here.
Stunning Backcountry Views
The true definition of being in Ojochal is ‘getting away from it all’ and at Villas en el Bosque we work hard to make sure that you have the space and privacy to explore your surroundings in your own time and your own way. But however you choose to explore, the scenery surrounding you is stunning and there is a new view around every corner here. We know you’ll love it!
Local & International Cuisine
The small village of Ojochal is Villa en el Bosque’s closest village and it is remarkably culturally diverse and the dining options reflect this. Visitors can enjoy many different kinds of food from local cuisine to Asian, Italian, French and other European and Meditteranean-style cooking. There’s something for everyone here!
