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

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

I just returned from our trip to Bosque. My wife and friend were there for 4 days from Sun 9/7 to Thur 9/11/14. We planned this trip back in early April and paid the required $1600 ($400/night for a house) deposit in June for booking Casa Miramar. We arrived and was greeted by guide Philip and Gravely (driver) at Puerta... More

My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at Bosque in the Mariposa cabina. It was the most divine experience and a true adventure. The cabinas, the staff, the grounds, and the activities at Bosque del Cabo are top-notch. We took full advantage of all the hiking trails, rain or shine! We loved dinner at the communal tables with the other... More

We were totally enthralled with our vacation there. The owners and the entire staff were wonderful, the food was excellent and the staff guides were very knowledgeable. The lodge is a mixture of comfort... More

I recently returned from Costa Rica and have been going to Bosque del Cabo for over 21 years. This was perhaps my 30-35 time staying at the lodge. As always, the food is excellent, the cabinas are always clean and comfortable, and the staff is very helpful in all situations. Plus the wild life, vistas, hiking trails & flora are... More
