I have been fortunate enough to travel to 25 countries in my life. Without a doubt, Bosque del Cabo wins the BEST single place I have ever stayed (in January 2015). The combination of comfort, food, wildlife, and views are simply unbeatable. BdC is expensive yet good value, and I highly recommend staying here to all adventurous travelers looking to... More

My husband and I have spent two big anniversaries here, 5 years apart. The first visit left us wanting to spend more time there, and I'm sure the next visit will be even longer! The first thing I noticed when we returned was that so many of the same people still work there. They were all so happy to welcome... More

A magical place! Surrounded by nature, peace and breathtaking views. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable about what the location has to offer. You can go and completely relax and unplug while enjoying great food and atmosphere. If you are feeling more adventurous, there are plenty of attractions from horse back riding to waterfall rappelling, guided or solo hikes and... More

Our room had the best view of the Pacific Ocean. It was very clean and had everything we needed on hand. The staff was very friendly and polite. The food was awesome! The hotel grounds are very well maintained and the bio diversity was abundant. If you are into nature, this is defiantly the place for you!

Our family of 6 started staying at Bosque when our youngest of 4 was 7 and oldest was 13. I don't even know exactly how many times we've been there since then, but it has probably been 12-15x. Why do we keep going back? We return 1-3x yearly because we are guaranteed a PERFECT vacation, without fail, EVERY time! The... More

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to write this review, but my husband and I experienced our second trip to Bosque del Cabo in August of 2014, on a nearly three-week long trip to the Osa. We spent six nights at BdC. As wonderful as our first trip had been, our 2014 adventure was even more... More

Bosque is a hidden gem on the tip of OSA peninsula in Costa Rica. The beautiful and lush grounds are filled with a wide range of biodiversity. The owners Phil and Kim Spier, as well as the bilingual staff, make you feel welcome and comfortable in the nature lodge. The hiking trails allow you to see all kinds of monkeys,... More

Bosque del Cabo is everything that you hoped for and expected after reading all the reviews of it ! We stayed in Casa Blanca. Its about 250m from the main lodge and therefore felt very secluded. Its big- it has a large sitting room/kitchen leading into the master bedroom with its own open air bathroom. The second bedroom is accessed... More
