We just returned from our 6th trip to BdC. This is the place to go for the perfect vacation! Where else can you go and find beautiful beaches, amazing jungle, mangroves, fantastic fishing, hiking, surfing, and incredible viewing of wildlife and marine life. It just keeps getting better and better! This year, along with the dolphins, turtles and humpback whales, we were blown away by the sighting of a Whale Shark! What a beautiful sight! The whale shark came right up to our boat and stayed at the surface of the water, so his massive gray body, speckled with white dots was clearly visible. Wow!!! We also witnessed a troop of Capuchin Monkeys in a dispute with a troop of Howler Monkeys over some jungle territory. The Capuchins, the smaller of the species, were actually more aggressive. What a show! The best part is you get to experience all of this with luxurious accommodations, with the exception of air conditioning, ( You get the cool breezes from the ocean, so this really isn't needed. ) in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Bosque del Cabo is run like a 5 star resort. The food is delicious, and there's plenty of it. You will not find a better staff of people anywhere in the world. The staff at BdC is amazing. The warmest, friendliest, most accommodating staff you will ever be fortunate enough to encounter in your travels. We love them all! Carlos and Phil Davidson are the most knowledgeable guides in all of Costa Rica, hands down. We've traveled other parts of this amazing country and know this to be a fact. They are definitely the best! You also have many well maintained trails to explore, with an abundance of wildlife, so there is never a dull moment. Some vacations can be a little boring for children. This place just oozes excitement for the kids. They will love exploring the trails, and seeing the wildlife first hand. They will actually see the animals they have only seen on television or in the zoos in there own native habitats. It doesn't get any better than this. So go! You won't be disappointed. Bosque del Cabo has it all!!!!
