We have visited Costa Rica at least annually since 1993; we have covered the country and without a doubt Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge is the best of the best. In '93 Bosque del Cabo consisted of 3 cabinas; there was no electricity and no hot water, but it was totally comfortable with wonderful beds, linens, food and a friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make our trip memorable. The wildlife there was like no other place (monkeys in the trees, squawking scarlett macaws in the air and a jaguar in the forest). We have been privaledged to watch this resort "grow up", but in the best of ways, never change. It still has friendly staff and a home like atmosphere in the amazing open air restaurant and bar. The food was outstanding on our last stay and even frozen drinks are now readily available in the bar. More cabins, deluxe cabins & houses are options; all are solar powered and have hot water. The views from all cabins are spectacular (all except the garden have ocean views). A swimming pool provides a great place to cool off after hikes in the forrest. Actually you don't have to venture into the forrest; we saw howler, white face and spider monkeys, a 3 toed sloth, agoutis, pizotes, scarlett macaws and toucans all from our cabin's deck, or on the lawn of the lodge. On the driveway we saw a Puma and a black jaguarundi. Nearby our animal sitings included a collared anteater and squirrel monkeys. If you love nature and want to experience Costa Rica to the fullest, Bosque del Cabo is the place to go! It matters not whether you are the ultimate adventure traveler or a "older" bird watcher. This resort can provide thrilling adventure (such as repeling down an amazing waterfall, tree climbing, zip-line, world class surfing) as well as guided birding and wildlife viewing on relatively level, well maintained trails. If you can only go one place, this should be it!
