We have just returned from a 14 night trip to Costa Rica. Bosque del Cabo was our last stop and it was certainly the best. From arrival when we were greeted by the owner then offered lunch and a welcome drink before having to deal with formalities it was a delight. The cabins are lovely,spacious and well equipped.the staff are... More

This is the second time that my family has visited this amazing Lodge. We travel often but this is the first time that we have wanted to "repeat" a vacation. From the time you arrive until the moment you leave you are always well taken care of. The accommodations are all great and this time around we chose to stay... More

This hotel is in the Osa Peninsula, in Costa Rica. We traveled to 6 destinations, And we all loved this one the best. Everyone had so much fun watching, hearing and photographing the animals here. The sounds of the jungle really added to it as well! The rooms were clean & nice with beautiful views of the ocean, food was... More

This is a beautiful property offering a lot to do and explore. We saw many animals right on from our lawn! Howler monkeys, coati, lots of birds and enjoyed the sunset animal tour. The staff were terrific. We stayed in one of the larger houses and so paid separately for the meals.

Bosque del Cabo is a place everyone needs to visit at least once in their lifetime. Once you do, you'll keep going back! This is a really special place because of it's nature and wildlife. On the beautiful, large property where the cabins, restaurant, restaurant bar area and pool are, you'll be surrounded by nature: rainforest on one side, and... More

Bosque del Cabo is an unforgettable place. The lodge sits on top of Cabo Matapalo in the Osa Peninsula which means it has amazing ocean views from the cabins and it's a natural biological corridor. I am professional architecture photographer with a parallel interest in wildlife and Osa is the place to be. Regarding the lodge, the food is spectacular,... More

The best part of my whole Costa Rican trip was going to Bosque del Cabo Lodge. It is in a very remote place in Costa Rica, still rather untouched by huge tourism. The lodge cabinas are extremely clean, and so cute! Ours was facing the ocean, what a view! The food was fantastic, each evening a buffet of delicious vegetables,... More

Bosque's remoteness is one of its best assets. Far from the noise and clamour of the city and not at all like most busy all-inclusive resorts, Bosque is surrounded by nature and is the epitome of tranquility, relaxation and exploration. Once you're there, it's well worth staying a while. My wife and I have been to Bosque many times and... More

This was the fifth of six places at which we stayed during a memorable holiday in Costa Rica and, although most of them were superb, I believe this was just about the most pleasurable experience. The experience started even before we arrived at the property when the driver who picked us up from the airport at Puerto Jimenez took us... More

WE stayed at Bosque a year ago for 4 nights. It was an unforgettable experience which begged for a repeat. So we returned this year for a 6 night stay. Great service, great cabina high on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific, great food (especially considering the remote location). But the star of the show is the forest, acres and acres... More
