I am a little late in writing this review. We visited Bosque del Cabo in the beginning of January. We had 6 adults in our group that stayed three nights in Casa Miramar. Casa Miramar is one of the houses at the lodge. It is an open air concept house and when they say open air, it is all totally... More

We visited for 3 nights right after a wonderful but challenging three day hike into Corcovado National Park to stay at La Sirena Ranger Station. We turned up stinky, grubby and covered in bruises and bites but were welcomed with open arms and like old friends, sat down to a delicious plate of food and a personal escort by Paola... More

The four of us were booked into the bungalow called Casa Blanca which we understand was originally built for the owner's mother. Well, she chose her site well - a five minute walk from the dining/bar/pool complex with a magnificent view over the Pacific. It has two enormous en-suite bedrooms and a lovely kitchen/living room area all three of which... More

This place is just wonderful, is the best place to spot wildlife, get into the rainforest and relax while you feel in paradise. You will easily see macaws, 4 different kinds of monkeys, toucans, coatis, and many other animals. It has an awesome ocean view. The food and service are just gorgeous.

My husband and I returned for our second visit to this incredibly wonderful destination. 5 years ago, we took our children and grandchildren, all 15 of us, to celebrate a special birthday. We loved it so much, we promised ourselves we'd return. We just spent a fabulous week there, to celebrate an important anniversary. Not only was it as good... More

Yes, there are other places I'd like to visit... But the Osa and Bosque del Cabo keep calling me back. We just returned from a 7 day stay and it was perfection. As an amateur wildlife photographer I always look forward to seeing what I can get a great shot of. I always come back with amazing shots, but this... More

Back for a second time, two years later and everything remains wonderful. From airport pick-up on arrival, to departure, the service is first class, the lodge is beautiful and the people wonderful. You choose how busy you want to be and how active. Every day you have a variety of activities to choose from, including hiking, birding (with a fabulous... More

The place is just amazing, one of the best hotels I have visited. It has everything from delicious dinners to adventure (hiking, great views, animal seeing) in just some steps away from the accommodations. Literally you can have the opportunity of seeming impressive animals on the protected areas of the hotel, animals that are even difficult to see in Corcovado... More

The grounds are quite manicured with great ocean views and wildlife! I was impressed by the service from the staff, so friendly, helpful and personal. They called us by name every time and always around when you needed anything. Rooms are clean and beautiful.
