This was the 3rd eco-lodge of our 3 week stay in Costa Rica, and by far, our most favorite for hiking and wildlife viewing. Our cabina was in a remote garden, 25 feet from primary rain forest.
The trails were incredibly well maintained and marked. We saw lots of wildlife (any many came through our cabina). The pool was a great refreshment after a long afternoon of hiking along the Pacific coast.
Friendly staff, relaxed atmoshpere, family style dining. Alot more comfortable and inviting than Lapa Rios (where we have stayed 3 times previously).
BDC ranks at the top of our list with Playa Nicuesa Lodge as the 2 places we will revisit on our next trip to Costa Rica.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bosque del Cabo is a romantic getaway and a naturalist’s dream, come true. Crowning a point 500 feet above where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean, nestled in the unspoiled jungles of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula is a paradise found. Located in a unique and fortunate position at the very tip of the Osa Peninsula in the southern Pacific region of Costa Rica, this 750+ acre forest reserve features private, spacious bungalows and gorgeous houses perched atop the cliffs of Cabo Matapalo, each with beautiful ocean views, tropical breezes and the rainforest at your doorstep; or choose beautiful and rustic garden view accommodations surrounded by thriving rainforests. Hiking trails lead you through the forest to deserted beaches on both the Golfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. Bosque del Cabo, which opened its doors as a hotel in 1990, is owner operated and dedicated to forest preservation. ... more less
