One cool place to check out is the Bamboo Room in Ojochal. About 7 hours down the road, past Dominical and Uvita, you hit Ojochal, a cozy little pueblo fast becoming known for its music and food scene. The Bamboo Room is a perfect fusion of both.


Owners John and Janet Chandry landed here via New Zealand, Canada and the US, looking for a B&B-type place to settle down and create their own personal version of paradise living. In Ojochal, they knew they were home the minute they saw the 3-acre property in the hills overlooking Tortuga Beach with an amazing sunset view. They converted the main house into the Bamboo Room, and have 5 cozy boutique rooms as well.
Janet and John told me their dream was to create a music venue first and then have a simple quality restaurant with a simple set menu highlighted by daily specials in a casual dining atmosphere. John’s mission was to have live local music daily highlighted by seasonal bands that draw many locals from all the surrounding towns.
He has certainly done that and more. The Bamboo Room fulfills John´s vision to build a cozy high-quality music venue that includes a cool stage with a full lighting complement, the finest surround sound system and a recording system that has already produced several live albums from the local groups The G String Cowboys and the Canadian Blues duo Chuck and Bo. Plus the bar and food deserve their own props as you’re guaranteed a great meal and cocktail delivered by a super amiable staff.
So if you’re looking for a great place to take a vacation or a vacation from your vacation, head south and make a pit stop at the Bamboo Room. You’ll find live music, great food, and good vibes, and the Chandrys will make sure you’ll feel the Pura Vida that resonates all around Ojochal.
