Lapas Rios or Bosque Del Cabo: Ecotourism and Beds

I am trying to decide between Lapas Rios and Bosque Del Cabo for 4 nights for my honeymoon. I have some specific questions.

1. Lapas Rios advertisies that they are eco-conscious and practice sustainable methods. Does anybody know if Bosque Del Cabo has the same commitment? We are trying very hard to reduce the carbon footprint of our wedding, so it seems we should continue on our honeymoon.

2. Can anybody compare the comfort of the beds? I've got a bad back, so a good bed is important if I'm going to be hiking.

I have stayed in both but have no idea how eco conscious either place REALLY is. Lapa Rios is quite a bit more luxurious and had great beds when I was there. I saw three different types of monkeys without even getting out of bed.

You can read all about Bosque's practices at their website - osapixels.com/boscabo/…index.html Very eco-conscious lodge.

Can't compare the beds, but I know at Bosque they are so comfy and I ended up buying the same brand of sheets they had cause I liked them so much.

I stayed at Bosque and there is all kinds of information in your room about what they're doing to be environmentally conscious. The man who originally bought the land bought it to preserve the rainforest and seems to be doing everything possible to be eco-friendly. I also appreciated that he employs primarily locals who are able to put their money back into the local economy. One night we were there they had a free presentation by a young woman involved with a large cat preservation. Bosque has allowed them to put movement activated cameras on one of their trails to record and study animal activity. My overall impression was one of admiration for what they're doing.

The beds were very comfortable for us. I don't have a bad back, but they were as comfortable as something at a Westin or Hilton resort, INMO.
