Three of us stayed here and it was special. It is truly Eco-friendly and just warm and hospitable. Service is great. Walks on the trails are great...they're on the grounds with lots of wildlife and plant life. The owners were on-site and are wonderful people, very hospitable and service oriented. We were in Acacari rooms - great choice. This place...

We spent 8 nights at Bosque del Cabo last week and could not have been happier with our stay. For us it was the perfect balance of relaxation in luxury accommodations and education/discovery of a new place. We hiked every trail on the 800 acre grounds and were inspired by the level of stewardship we observed everywhere we went. The...

We recently stayed at Bosque del Cabo and really enjoyed ourselves. Rooms: We got the Manglilo Cabina and it was great. The view is fantastic and the extra beds in the loft perfect for the family. The room is spacious, extremely clean and the outdoor shower wonderful. The staff were wonderful in cleaning the room and making the beds everyday....

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in late November as part of our honeymoon trip to Costa Rica. This place far exceeded all my expectations, even after reading all the great reviews.

My husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary this weekend, and it made me reflect on the Bosque del Cabo where we became engaged. I still remember this hotel like it was yesterday. The rooms have majestic panoramic ocean views, and outdoor showers that are still completely private. The rainforest hikes are fun, without being too strenuous. And,...

I have just completed a week at BDC. I have completely enjoyed the ocean view, wonderful food, access to incredible animals and really a nice staff. I listened to others that recommended staying here & I am really glad that I did. The best part of staying here is the 750 acres with trails that you can roam on as...

We stayed at Bosque in August and I would concur with the majority of other great reviews. I find it slightly difficult to know whether this review should be under the hotel section or in an 'adventure' section as Bosque is so much more than a hotel. We found our trip a genuine eco-friendly experience and we learnt a lot....

Absolutely stunning lodge. Highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed in "Congo" which had fantastic views over the ocean. You don't need to leave the garden to view wildlife, its all right there. Special treat was seeing a baby Armadillo near the pool one afternoon. Staff were great and made our stay even more memorable. Such attention to...

I've been visiting Bosque del cabo for over 20 years! I'm a wildlife photographer and fell in love with the Osa peninsula . Such a great destination for wildlife, rainforest, and a great spot to replenish the soul. Bosque del Cabo has always been my favorite lodging while in the Osa. Phil and Kim (owners) have always made their guests...

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
