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

Is the best place in Costa Rica for nature lovers, you will spot lots of wildlife, the ocean view is awesome, the trails are very cool.The service is excellent, everyone is very kind and friendly. There are lots of cool activities to do: zipline, tree climbing, hiking, rappelling, surfing lessons, birdwatching, horseback... 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

Came for just one night to Bosque del Cabo last month to check it out for a women's retreat and were blown away by the setting, the ownership, everything. As such, we booked it for a large group that will take up the entire resort in early September. My friend and I shared a room with a King downstairs and... More

Bosque del Cabo provides gracious service in an incredible setting. Simple, aesthetically pleasing, romantic and luxurious, cabinas are located on a cliff six hundred feet above the ocean, with outstanding views and wildlife visits. Decks with well made furniture invite lounging. Beautiful canopied beds provide an amazing night's sleep. A well lighted bathroom is true luxury in the jungle, but... More

This was my family's second trip to the Osa Peninsula in 15 years (stayed at Lapa Rios in 2000); both were 10 days of magic. The trails at Bosque del Cabo are fantastic: well laid out and maintained, with frequent sightings of all 4 monkey species, beautiful birds, poison dart frogs, wild peccaries, coati mundi and agouti but with a...

I've traveled to CR a couple times and have been lucky enough to stay at a beautiful home on the sand, and now more recently, at Bosque Del Cabo. Though the experience, being a surfer, of being on the sand in a house was great, it also came with a little more "jungle" than myself, wife and daughters were probably... More

A true treasure in Peninsula de Osa! Absolutely LOVED Bosque! I took a flight form San José, the view was great the whole way there, just amazing! Entering Bosque del Cabo, beautiful tropical forest and wildlife everywhere you look. The lodge has everything you need. All the cabins are separated enough to give you privacy, absolutely awesome ocean views as... More

We had an outstanding time and enjoyed the lodge and the staff to the utmost. Our introduction was with Greben – the driver from Puerto Jimenez Airport. What a nice man he is and he was so kind to treat us as though he had known us forever. Haran David was our server and you couldn’t have asked for more... More

My family - daughter 10, son 8 - stayed here for 5 nights in February 2015 and it was a dream trip. It was our kids' first real foray into more adventurous travel and with a kid who gets car sick, I didn't want to spend most of our time in the car, driving from site to site. Searched for... More
