Rocking J's Art Hostel


Rocking Jay Korchmaros, originally from the border of USA and Mexico, came to Costa Rica over 20 years and had a vision to build an art hostel in front of a favorite local reef swimming pool. Needless to say the property was a swamp and it took Jay a third of his life savings to fill the swamp that is now the most colorful art and mosaic filled hostel in Central America. J's house is a Mayan pyramid made from shipping containers which doubles as the Temple Stage during ManaFest. RJ's is a melting pot of international rockstars, travelers and artists that come together with the right amount of bon fire and spice.
