Meet Magaly



Magaly is a sweet and charismatic girl who was born and raised in Ojochal de Osa. She remembers with great affection and nostalgia the Ojochal about 15 or 20 years ago, where families used to go on weekends to spend time in the surroundings of the community, where the "pozas" (so called to the areas where there was adequate space for swimming in the rivers) were the favorites to invest the day, carrying their food in the traditional Costa Rican way: lunch wrapped in banana leaves.


She has seen the Ojochal community grow in housing and commercial occupation, which has welcomed people of many nationalities and has made this place their home as well.


Magaly is a person full of dreams and aspirations, entrepreneurship is one of them, as well as studying and traveling in and out of Costa Rica. She knows well that in order to achieve this she must work hard for what she has worked and studied since she was a child and, before graduating in the career of Sustainable Tourism Business Management at the National University, she had to wait 2 years to enter, time that she invested in various jobs.


If she had to leave Ojochal for work reasons, she would, however, she is sure that she would return for when it is time to retire since here she has valuable childhood memories, her family that is the most important thing for her and also, the tranquility which represents living in a community that offers unique experiences in the mountains and near the beach.
