I will state my bias up front. If you are a serious birder or photographer of birds, this is a perfect spot. We are not – we enjoy seeing the birds and taking casual photographs, but appreciate a modicum of comfort. If you are in our category, one night is sufficient. The setting is lovely, with a mountain stream flowing... More

Stayed here three nights. At first we were the only guests - what peace indeed! All the staff were very nice and very helpful, especially Danny and Mario. Food was mostly very good with only a couple of items that were so so. Room was very nice. Trails were very good. We could have used another day or so to... More

We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful and remote eco lodge. This is a very small lodge. I'm not sure how many rooms, but I would guess 10.This is a true birdwatchers heaven (not really for families with young children). The Eco Lodge is situated in a preserve which has many trails to hike. They have guides available on site... More

For the first 2 nights in Costa Rica we booked to stay at Bosque de Paz, upon arrival we were welcomed by the wonderful Frederico, the warmest of welcomes, it was a little tricky finding this little bit of heaven but totally worth it. This family business is nurturing and every meal was scheduled at the same time so in... More

The atmosphere is just incredible. A very small place. Created by the owner as a refuge for plants and wildlife. All profits go to conservation. The forest is just amazing. Be sure to walk the paths. You will see just amazing stuff. Birds and wildlife are quite good. Particularly if you get up early. I was amazed. One day there... More

Hummingbirds and their cousins wherever you look, plus monkeys or coattis playing outside your room and the jungle on you doorstep. Very helpful staff and spacious rooms made this a relaxing start to our trip. Well marked trails in the gardens lead onto jungle paths that made this urban traveller feel safe but intrepid.

Beautiful setting. Owner's social skills bizarre. The staff were very pleasant. Food home cooked and acceptable. No bar. The Room was cold, dark and damp with a loose sink. We were the only guests so perhaps we could have given a better room. We arrived 'late' for lunch and told we had to have dinner at 18.30 and we 'Negotiated'... More
