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

My husband and I originally booked 2 nights at Bosque del Cabo. We drove from San Jose, staying a few nights in Domenical before driving down to the Osa Peninsula. When we arrived and were shown to our cabina, we sat for a few minutes and watched the monkeys and coatis in the trees and the mccaws flying by and... More

Every review said the truth, there’s no more praise I could give! Loved this paradise on earth. There’s no TV, no hairdryer, no Wifi in the cabinas, all we could hear were birds, monkeys and the ocean waves. We didn’t even need a room key, and the toiletries were of natural ingredients. The food and drinks menu changed every day,... More

I just got back yesterday from visiting Bosque del Cabo. It was nothing short of spectacular. The views were incredible. All the staff was incredibly nice and genuine. The food was SO good. My husband and I hiked every trail on the property and saw so many incredible things. When people ask me how our trip was I have a... More

My husband and I booked 2 nights at this Lodge and it was fantastic. We stayed in the "Gecko" canana which is a perfect location to the dining area, pool and bar but also amazing wildlife seen from this cabana. There were macaws and toucans right in the trees in front of our cabana. There were monkeys swinging in the... More

We had a cabin overlooking the pacific ocean with stunning views and surrounded by all manner of tropical trees and plants - frequently saw capucchin and howler monkeys! Ever present were scarlet macaws, passing brown pelicans, toucans, vultures and a massive cane toad which appeared on the deck of our cabin every night when the outside light went on (as... More

We visited Bosque del Cabo on the Osa Peninsula to better understand tropical rainforest ecology. Of particular interest to us was Philip, El Cabo's resident naturalist, who gives daily tours of the surrounding forest in which no bird, insect or plant species goes unnoticed or unexplained. His vast knowledge of natural history particulars is remarkable, but even better are his... More
