Bienvenidos a Ojochal

The south Pacific region of Costa Rica is an absolutely ideal place to live or travel, connect, learn, and transform. The Pura Vida peace and simplicity, authenticity,  holistic lifestyles, and abundance of life, create an optimal backdrop for reconnection, education, and adventure.

Offering a breathtaking fusion of jungle biodiversity and pristine beaches, tropical sunshine and rain forest showers, along with family-friendly, adventure-filled communities, Ojochal is ideal for Worldschooling families, teachers,  and retreat guests.

A comfortable 2.5 hour drive or 20-minute domestic flight from the San Jose airport, you will find the southern zone teeming with wildlife! Species spotted at school include titi monkeys, howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, toucan, scarlet macaw, paca, iguana, butterflies, geckos, owl, mot-mot, and even an occasional sloth!

Scuba diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, hiking, and visiting the National Park are all  additional opportunities to experience the tropical wildlife that enriches Manuel Antonio.

As our community is committed to honoring all laws and ethics regarding wildlife, please remember to be mindful visitors, enjoy all animals from a distance.

Our Learning Space

Inspired by Reggio Emilia and Waldorf-Steiner instructional environments, our intimate home space nurtures peace, comfort, and exploration. We honor the incredible importance that sound, physical space, and geography has on our energy. Our space includes child-inspired centers that both activate curiosity and movement, as well as promote tranquility and connection.

We are securely located on a private road with secured access in central Manuel Antonio. Sharing a facility with an internationally recognized health and wellness facility and retreat operator, our neighbors are supportive partners in the holistic education movements.

Our primary instructional and play areas are outdoors amidst natural light and the jungle backdrop of tropical fruit trees, hibiscus, ylang yang, and our student-designed sustainable school garden and compost system. Students enjoy gratitude circles and Mindfulness workshops on our sacred Sun Deck and eat family-style lunches and snacks outdoors daily, in the shade of our rancho-style front terrace. While the majority of our space is contained in thoughtfully-designed covered and uncovered outdoor spaces, we additionally have air-conditioned indoor instructional spaces,a full kitchen, bathroom, and office.
