Stayed at Bosque de Paz with four friends. It was our first experience of Costa Rica & it did not disappoint. We arrived after midnight, following a very long flight. We were greeted by the very friendly Manager, Kenneth, he showed us to our rooms. He then provided us with much needed refreshments. The rooms were large, comfortable & rustic,... More

I saw a sign at Bosque de Paz that read, where there is peace there is God. What a wonderful place and what superb attention and service. A unique, secluded location in a vast private reserve which we learned, is a natural corridor uniting two national Parks. The food was wonderful and their Orchid garden was phenomenal, especially the miniature... More

This is a well designed purpose built lodge. Very attractive buildings in a lovely cloud forest setting. The rooms are simple but attractive and functional. The staff are very welcoming and the food excellent. Hummingbird feeders adorn the buildings and thus you can even watch them while you dine. Other birds and animals are attracted to the immediate garden by... More

Bosque de Paz - the peace wood - is reached along great sweeping switchbacks, occasionally unmade, and over some hair-raising bridges across deep ravines. It's a tiny hotel set in perfectly groomed gardens surrounded by cloud forest. It's a haven for wild animals and humans alike. We were greeted by Kenneth, Bosque de Paz's elfin manager who doubles up as... More

Great food, lovely people, hummingbirds and wildlife. We liked the hikes in the jungle, and the garden has a great variety. It is easy to get around the lodge, photographing was wonderful. Can't go wrong staying here.

Bosque De Paz is a hidden Gem. Frederico the owner is a super nice and attentive host. Beautiful hiking trails and the hummingbirds are truly amazing! Can bit a little chilly at night, so be sure to bring a fleece or sweatshirt.

Only Ten elegant rooms and great food made this one of my favorite stays. The trails are awesome and I was Sad I only stayed two nights. If I return to Costa Rica, I would stay longer. It is one of the few places you can see a Paca. Wish I were there now.
