We went to Bosque Feb 2007 with 3 kids ages 11,14,15. I agree with all of the reviews I have read. We stayed at Casa Blanca, a 2 bedroom house. It was close to the dining area, so it was a quick walk over for dinner. The house had a great kitchen,a deck that had an amazing view of the ocean below,a nice livingroom area and 2 bedrooms with separate baths.Because everything is in the jungle we did encounter various forms of spiders (really big spiders)and bugs. We also had a small scorpion visit with us for a very brief moment. The second bedroom is off of the deck so the kids couldn't get to the main area without going on the deck. Not a big deal for us because our kids were older. They did join us the first night because they were a little freaked out by the nature in their room.
The food was fabulous, you pick off the menu for breakfast and lunch. The dinner was buffet the nights we were there. Staff was great and there were lots of activities to choose from.We saw macaws in the trees off of our deck!!!
It is quite a journey to get to Bosque. We had rented a car and drove from Manuel Antonio. Some of the roads were in really bad shape. It was about an hour from Puerto Jimenez. If we were to go again we would think strongly of flying down. Since there are no stores anywhere near Bosque if you were to cook you would need to load up with supplies in Puerto Jimenez.
