If you want to see the interior of the Osa peninsula this place would just what you are looking for. Located at about 2 km from the border of the Corcovado National park it offers a convenient access to the surrounding habitats. The lodge is very comfortable, the owners - Liz and Abraham - very hospitable and knowledgeable, the stuff... More

Perfect place for birdwatching. They have a few superb ird guides around who manage to show you everything without using playback, You have to cross two rivers by car, which is quite an experience on its own. The lodge is eco friendly and self supporting. The bedrooms were "in the open" but the beds were covered by mosquito tents. Brekfast,... More

If you want to feel totally immersed in the rainforest, this is the place. Liz and Abraham are the most congenial and helpful hosts. The atmosphere: hot and sultry, animals and birds surround you. The birding: Abraham and Ulysses will spend extra energy finding the rarest and most intriguing birds. The food: fresh, well presented, and served in a candlelit,... More

I enjoyed my stay at the lodge, lots of hiking, birds and great food. I did not find the limited internet and electricity an issue. I came with fully charged batteries in all my equipment so was able to make it thru 3 nights before needing full charges. Bring extra batteries and a flashlight, the humidity is very high so... More

This is for sure a wonderful place with dedicated, engaged hosts and top-notch birding! Smack in the rain-forest at the end of a long, bumpy gravel road and stream crossing. It is a mixture of luxury with the very few guests and constant attention and acitivity when you have it included, and at the same time fairly rough with shared... More

Thanks so much for your review. Admittedly our special lodge is not for everyone. We designed the lodge for those wanting to experience the rainforest and take a break from the modern world in a special and unusual way. Our aim is to provide high quality of service to our visitors, in a very small, very comfortable, family style lodge... More

We spent 3 nights enjoying the birding at the Lodge. Rising early in the morning to go out on walk with either Abraham or Ulises we added numerous birds to our list. The meals were fantastic with something for everyone including people with food sensitivities. Liz and Abraham go out of their way to find the birds, reptiles and insects... More

My son and I spent three days in the lodge in March 2013. We had a great time: Liz and Abraham are fantastic hosts, the stuff is excellent and the place itself very beautiful and tranquil. This was my second stay in the lodge, and I am looking forward to coming again the next year!

I spent 6 fantastic days at the Bosque del Río Tigre lodge last summer, and have been raving about it to everyone who will listen ever since. What other reviewers have said here are all true - it's a beautiful little lodge with mind-boggling birds, most of which are viewable right on the property or within walking distance of the... More

Upon arriving at Bosque del Rio Tigre on the afternoon of Feb. 7, 2013, so many things happen at once that it’s a bit hard to untease the events. First, we ford the Rio Tigre to our Lodge. Immediately we are in wonder at the two-story building. Then as if some avian god directed the action, lodge owner Abraham informs... More

First of all, this was a very cool place to stay at overall. The open air design of the lodge really connects you with nature, both in feeling and quite literally. Abraham and Liz are great hosts, and this place provides great service, and yummy food. The lodge itself is kept spotless, and cools down to a very comfortable level... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A very small specialty rainforest lodge oriented towards nature observation and birding. We provide very personal attention,excellent meal service and guiding. The lodge is situated outside a small village on the Rio Tigre and is completely surrounded by the forest. We have a maximum capacity for 12 guests. All 4 upstairs rooms and the two cabins are designed for nature viewing and open to the forest on 1 or more sides. Upstairs rooms have shared baths and the cabins have private baths. Cleanliness and guest's comfort are our goals. You will have access to many kilometers of trails both on our 13 hectare forested property and on the properties of our partners. ... more   less
