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

We visited in the low season (mid June). The rain, though lighter than usual for the time of year, was rarely a problem. When it rained, it was for an hour at most, or at night. Advantage of low season also was that the lodge was not full, and we enjoyed what is probably a quieter, less crowded group at... More

This was the 5th time my husband and I have stayed at Bosque Del Cabo and it won't be the last. We stayed 4 wonderful nights. We always rent a 4x4 and drive as we stop at other places in Costa Rica. If this is the only place you are visiting, fly into Peurto Jimenez. The days were filled with... More

Bosque maintains the integrity of the forest by careful placement of these lovely casitas among the rich land and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Our stay was five days. We spent time on the deck early mornings and early afternoons watching the wildlife feeding on the fruit trees. The 3+ hour tour with Phil around the forest was a... More

This was the most relaxing place I've been in years. Frankly, not having wi-fi in the rooms is a blessing in disguise for workaholics. I was only able to check my email at the pool, and so was able to really disconnect. With another couple, we stayed in Casa Blanca, which is gorgeous! The hiking is great - we saw... More

Returned here as it is such a wonderful location, miles from everything...so it seems....looking out over the Pacific. Our cabin was Pizote & we had scarlet macaws feeding in the tree next to our deck, coatis & their babies, in the trees above us plus spider monkeys, howlers & toucans, enjoying the fruiting trees above us plus humming birds &...

My husband and I stayed at Bosque del Cabo in the Sol cabina for 5 nights earlier this month and can't say enough good things about it. When we stepped onto the deck of our cabina and saw the lounge chairs and the hammock, and the incredible view of the Pacific below us, I knew I'd died and gone to... More

Here 3 days/2 nights in early May 2015. Unlike rest of our 16 day Costa Rica trip, we picked least expensive room option available here, since this place was a “splurge” on a relatively budget-oriented trip (to be more specific, our rooms at most of the other places were $100/night or less). Granted, this place included food as part of... More

This may be my favorite hotel/lodge/resort that I have visited. My family of six (daughters 6 and 11, sons 14 and 16, at the time) really were exposed to new adventures. We rented Casa Blanca to accommodate our family. We could go half a day while walking the trails without seeing another person. The service is excellent. Because Casa Blanca... More

This place is out of this world beautiful, for those who like nature and want the rainforest experience. No connection, no TV, nothing to do other than walk in e rainforest, enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle and the views. For us it was perfect, as we love the rainforest and our kids are old enough to travel... More
