I've been going to Bosque del Cabo for 24 years now! I guess when you fall in love with a place...it's worth going back to over and over and over again!!!! For anyone wanting rustic elegance in a Eco-lodge, amazing food, miles upon miles of manicured forest trails, unsurpassed wildlife viewing, warm friendly people, views to die for....well, Bosque del...

If you are looking for a quiet night's sleep at your hotel this is not the place to stay! But if you want the full experience of howler monkeys screaming in the mornings, coatis and agoutis outside your door, ants walking through your bath, spiders weaving their webs nearby....this is the place for you. If you respect them, they will... More

We visited Bosque from 11/23/2014 to 12/7/2014. Rather than go through a narrative about all our activities at Bosque, I want to mention some of the lasting impressions we formed of this place. First, of course, there was the animal life--in addition to the humans, of course. We saw all four species of monkeys indigenous to Costa Rica nearly every... More

We just returned from staying at this rainforest lodge and it could not have been any better! The wildlife sightings are plentiful, the food excellent and ample, service and staff very attentive and friendly, and the birding and naturalist guides extremely informative and worthwhile! The rooms and beds are comfortable and clean and awakening to the dawn chorus of birds... More

What a beautiful place. This was an unforgettable family vacation, Bosque is beautifully located at Osa Peninsula, high above the ocean it offers exquisite views and lovely breezes. The cabins are beautiful and spacious, very nicely decorated with an amazing ocean view and an outdoor shower (which was very nice)! You sleep to the sounds of nature, and it’s great.... More

Bosque is gorgeous! It sits on a cliff over the see. Within minutes of arriving we saw coati, howler monkeys, spider monkeys and toucans. The rooms are private, beautiful and comfortable. The grounds and gardens are lovely and play host to many birds and other creatures. The food is beyond delicious! The property hosts incredibly well-maintained hiking trails that wind... More

I had never been to Costa Rica and found this lodge on line.This was special trip for my 12 year old grandson. What we found was even better than I had hoped for. The rainforest was fabulous with it's flora and fauna, the the lodge was first rate in every category: the accommodations, food, staff, and offered adventures and hikes.... More

Bosque is a remarkable experience. The property is a wonderfully pristine tropical rainforest with beautiful trails set in around 800 acres. The flora and fauna is very comparable to what we experienced in Corcovado. And the truly incredible thing is how they pull it off in such a remote setting. There's a wonderful staff - friendly, helpful and fun. Daniel... More
