Just returned from Bosque del Rio Tigre in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. I can't say enough about the comfort, cleanliness, clean smooth linens (washed by hand in pristine mountain water), and of course the food. Three meals a day, one more delicious than the next. Freshest ingredients with wonderful flavorful local spices. And way healthy! The lodge is tucked right into the jungle, with toucans and macaws and rare tropical birds flitting near the rooms. I could bird-watch from my bed, and see and hear the river below. Our hosts, Liz and Abraham, and our guide, Ulysses (and Abraham who serves as host, guide and cook at various times) were part of the special charm of the stay. We stayed 7 full days, and enjoyed each one better than the next. For serious birders, the guides are top-rated and know every single little bitty bird by its call and chip-note. It helped us greatly to add to our life lists. Swimming in the river cooled us down each day and the hot showers got us ready for drinks and dinner by candle-light, with the jungle noises as background. This is a turn-key trip with Liz and Abraham making sure all transportation needs are taken care of and on time. Truly, I would go back tomorrow. I miss them all already.
