This is our second stay at Bosque del Cabo. This time we stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every minute again: the gorgeous grounds, wonderful hiking/walking trails, guided nature and bird walks, extremely friendly staff, and congenial guests. We stayed in the same deluxe casita with a stunning view of the Pacific, as last time. The pool is small but very pleasant with comfortable chaises and umbrellas for shade. There is a nice bar with comfortable seating where munchies were available in the evening. The food is quite good with multiple choices for dinner - many vegetable dishes, as well as meat and fish. You can eat at communal tables if you choose or a separate tables which was our preference. Wildlife is abundant: monkeys of various species, many birds, coatis, agutis, sloths, etc. are omnipresent or, at least, frequently seen. There is a hiking trail to nearby Golfo Dulce beaches to which you can also be driven; they are beautiful - our favorite is Backwash. Unless you enjoy about 400 steep steps each way, we do not recommend the Pacific Trail beach to which you can only go at low tide.
- 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
