We loved our stay at Bosque del Cabo. Great location, trails, guide, facilities, staff, ocean view, wildilife viewing... We would certainly recommend the place to whoever may be going to Osa peninsular. Just two drawbacks: we were given the choice between a luxury cabin and the Aracari cabin with the best view, for the same price. We chose the latter... More

My family visited Bosque del Cabo and absolutely loved it. It was really just amazing beyond words - To be honest, I had been somewhat wary about being out of my comfort zone, with two teens and an 11-year old, but this ended up being one of the best and most memorable vacations we have ever taken. We loved everything... More

I won't be able to say enough about this place. This place is absolutely amazing. It is my own personal definition of heaven on earth. We were there 4 nights and 3 days, and it was not nearly enough for me. I wanted to stay longer and I cried when it was time to leave. The grounds are beautiful and... More

Let me begin by saying that the Osa Peninsula is an absolutely spectacular destination. There is incredibly rich wildlife here, and combined with beaches it is hard to beat if you are interested in the things that attract one to Costa Rica in the first place. This is the one part of Costa Rica I would not miss on a... More

This is the sort of place one hesitates to recommend because he/she is afraid too many visitors will spoil it. The location at the tip of the OSA Peninsula is superb. High above the ocean it offers lovely views and pleasant breezes that moderate the hot climate. The service is impeccable. The thatched-roofed cottages are lovely as are the common... More

Bosque was as close to paradise as we've ever come. There was plenty to do, but some of our greatest pleasure came from simply lying in bed with all the doors open, feeling the warm ocean breeze, hearing the rustle of the jungle, and seeing the monkeys, toucans, parrots, and macaws pass by, They have a first rate staff, from...

This is truly a lovely place but was just not the right vacation for us. We went with our son and his girlfriend who wanted an eco-lodge. The first night we arrived there was a 6 inch scorpion next to his bed. He killed it and the hotel was great about calming them down. Scoprions are give a nasty bite... More

Stayed in "lapa 'cabin for 3 nights. It has a great view and I think it is more private than some of the others. However if you want to see a sunset this is not the best cabin in march . As many people have already said the food is amazing and so is the service. Wild life is abundant... More

I cannot wait to visit Bosque Del Cabo again! Had the best time ever last November when I visited with a couple of friends. I normally don't like to write reviews but I felt the need to share this perfect vacation spot with others. This place is beautiful just like the pictures show but more impressive to me is the...
