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

My family visited Bosque for the first time in July this year. My son is 11 years old and my daughter is 7 and has a nut allergy. It is always in the back of my mind traveling to foreign places with the kids that our attention to the peanut allergy has to be top of mind at all times.... More

This place is just amazing. There's nothing that I can say to convey the pure Costa Rican rainforest beauty. The lodge is amazing. The food is delicious. We loved eating together as one giant group at dinner. We got to know other families and learn about what they knew and saw. Happy Hour was the most anticipated time of the... More

My two boys, ages 10 and 17, spent 5 days at Bosque in July 2014 and many of our favorite memories in Costa Rica were made here! The food was delicious and plentiful, the bar was fun with a mosaic snake to welcome you and you can order a top shelf mojito or margarita and a phenomenal kid approved smoothie... More

Cannot say enough good things about Bosque del Cabo. This is the real deal Costa Rican resort/hotel. 800 acres of pristine forest at the tip of the Osa Peninsula. The grounds are immaculate, the rain forest pristine, views incredible staff is attentive and friendly, wildlife abundant, breezes abound, trails and activities for everyone and the food was delicious. If you're... More

I am a naturalist guide in Costa Rica with many years on the business. An even though I travel all over Costa Rica leading groups for bird watcher…nature lovers, there isn´t any other place in the l country that compares with what we get to see in Bosque del Cabo (Osa Peninsula). Just from the garden of the property is... More

This really is a natures lovers dream destination and truly is the jewel in the crown of all the nature lodges in the whole of Costa Rica. The location is simply stunning - a clifftop setting that takes your breath away with beautiful tropical gardens and views from the ocean facing cabinas that are just spectacular - but with the...

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon in early September for 4 nights. Our entire experience at Bosque was truly spectacular. We stayed in the "Lapa" cabana. The cabana was very comfortable, including the bed. Every day off the porch we would watch the monkeys in the trees, and scarlet macaws soaring over the forest canopy. We enjoyed... More
