Hands down the best place we have stayed. It is worth the journey to the tip of the osa peninsula to get to this oasis in the rainforest. The staff were friendly and attentive and all learned our names after meeting us on the first day. The food was great and the accommodation (we stayed in a garden cabin) was...

Our family spent another wonderful holiday this year at Bosque del Cabo on the Osa peninsula. My wife and I stayed in Casa Teca in the tropical garden area and we loved it. The howler monkeys woke us every morning to prepare for another great day. Listening to the jungle at night before bedtime was a real treat. The tropical...

We stayed at Casa Miramar. The house was amazing - gorgeous view, beautiful décor, comfortable - everything you'd want in a get-away-from-it-all vacation and more. The plunge pool was the best after a few hours of hiking in the tropical heat. We'd wake up to howler monkeys and macaws outside; agoutis and coatis wandering around on the grounds. You could...

Once we discovered this magical place we have been coming back annually with our family. Kim and Phil and the rest of the team once again blew us away with their incredible service and attention to detail. We can't wait to go again next year!

Over the past 6 years, I have given several places around the world 5 stars and they all deserve their stars... but there is a handful of places that fall into a special category... places that were so special that we would go back, these include places in Madagascar (Anjajavy L'Hotel), Tanzania (Greystoke Mahale), Zambia (Sausage Tree) and we have...

This was our second trip to Bosque del Cabo; our first was 14 years ago. There are not many places you can return and find the magic even more, well, magical. We love to stay out in the garden cabinas; there is nothing better than walking through the rainforest at night with a flashlight, listening to the sounds. Of course,...

My family has never enjoyed a stay of this quality anywhere else. The place is spectacular, the accommodations well designed and comfortable, and the food excellent. But what makes Bosque Del Cabo special is that it is clearly a labor of love, that everyone from owners to staff is committed to providing guests with the best possible experience. Phil and...

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
