This was my first trip to Costa Rica and the Osa Penninula! Can't say enough good things about Bosque Del Cabo and it was a really fine choice for the "Costa Rica photo workshop" which is held each year there and led/hosted by U.S Wildlife photographer, Roy Toft. The food was terrific and the staff seemed friendly and helpful. Wildlife... More

This is the perfect blend of a top notch resort and a fabulous eco lodge. The staff is attentive and accommodating, calling you by name every day. They go out of their way for special touches, like a surprise private dinner for a newly-engaged couple. The onsite research scientist, Philip, is passionate and knowledgeable on the ecology of the entire... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we felt very lucky to have chosen such a great place. We were taking a 6 day bike trip north of San Jose and had heard that going to a rainforest lodge on the Osa Peninsula was a must to see wildlife! We went before our planned riding and our four... More

Simply an amazing time. Our 7 year old kids never stopped for 5 days of jungle adventure. We stayed in Mangillo cabin and the ocean view was breathtaking. Daily visits from toucans monkeys, scarlet mackaws and all sorts of other creatures kept us entertained.The room was amazing, with an outside hot shower that lets you watch for whales why you...

We stayed in Orchidea the second week in November and had an absolutely fabulous time. The abundance of the wildlife was amazing! We saw countless agouti, coati, all four types of monkeys (including some mommas carrying their babies), poison dart frogs, tent making bats and several other bat species, peccaries, an armadillo, toucans, aracari, macaws, parrots, a raccoon, several curassow,...

We have stayed at Bosque Del Cabo several times. Each time has been incredible. This visit we stayed in the Pizote cabin. We had a beautiful full on view of the golfo dulce from our bed. The doors of the cabins can be pulled back and you have an unobstructed ocean view from the comfortable bed. Well, we are laying... More

My wife and I returned to Bosque del Cabo for a two-day getaway, having last been there with our family in June 2012 with our young teens. Once again, we were blown away by the excellent service, the fresh food, the lush surroundings, great views and the presence of unique wild life on the grounds. Plus, the other guests were... More

My wife and I stayed here in November 2014. It was great - the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the room was very nice and clean, and the food was all healthy and delicious. The cabins also have amazing patios which hang over the bluffs looking out to the pacific ocean a couple of hundred meters below - not... More

I've traveled to the Osa Peninsula before but recently my family and I stayed at Bosque del Cabo for the first time. We arrived after sundown and enjoyed a warm welcome with a delicious dinner before being shown to our beautiful and comfortable lodging in Casa Blanca, a two bedroom, fully equiped villa. Nothing had prepared us for the amazing... More
