My bf and I came to BdC for the Fodor's get-together at the end of June/early July 2013. This was my second visit, and it was even more amazing than my first time. There's just something very special about the Osa Peninsula and BdC, in particular. And the stay was made even more special because of the other guests and the always attentive but unobtrusive staff.
We stayed in Congo for the first two nights. Our toilet became clogged due to tree roots, and though the lodge was able to fix the problem in less than a couple of hours, they offered us a move to La Palma. We took them up on the offer mostly to try out another cabin. Though I have a very soft spot in my heart for Congo (it was where I stayed my first visit), I ended up loving La Palma even more. The trees in the front of the cabin were full of capuchin monkeys when we moved in, and it seemed to be the perfect welcoming committee.
The wildlife on the grounds and on the trails was exceptional. Highlights included a herd of peccaries on the Titi trail, a sloth moving to another tree on the main grounds, and more monkey sightings than can be counted.
Another highlight was the horseback riding tour offered by local Miguel Sanchez. Really amazing and highly recommended.
All in all the perfect rainforest get away -- thank you!
