We thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful stay at this very special Eco lodge. Our hosts, Liz and Abraham made us feel entirely at home, feeding us delicious and elegant meals 4 times a day, guiding our very informative and exciting bird walks and sharing their knowledge of the Osa Peninsula's flora and fauna. The lodge is beautiful with richly polished wood... More

1. bring a head lamp for reading at night 2. flashlight to get to the shower room and getting around at night. 3. laundry takes 3 days to dry bring extra clothes 4. really important: bring knee high socks for the rubber boats, other wise you will have wounds from rubbing at the top of the boots. 5. walking sticks...

We spent two nights, in the cabina with a private bath, and loved our time. The birding is spectacular; we were guided by Ulysses, who is terrific, and have been guided before by Abraham who is amazing. The meals were really good -- creative and delicious. When you stay here, you feel welcomed by people who are passionate about preserving... More

We did not stay at Bosque del Río Tigre but drove up from the Agua Dulce Beach Resort in Puerto Jiménez, which took about 45 minutes in total before dawn, to go on a morning bird walk with excellent guide Ulises after arranging the walk with Liz a couple of days before (following some earlier correspondence). Our experience was of... More

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...

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
