Recently returned from 5 unforgettable nights at Bosque. From the moment we arrived, we could tell it was a special place. We woke up the first morning to the sound of howler monkeys overhead. A black and green poison dart frog was hopping around our outdoor shower and a pair of macaws was perched in a tree above our deck chairs. That’s the thing about the place – you’re not in a hotel near a rainforest, you’re in a beautiful cabin right in the middle of the rainforest and it’s alive all around you. We did a ton of hiking while we were there, but often the best wildlife sightings were just feet from our cabin. While there, we saw 4 species of monkeys, coatis, agoutis, snakes, frogs, lizards, toucans, and macaws. On a boat trip in the bay and up a river, we saw alligators, dolphins, a sea turtle, and more.
The staff were all warm and welcoming. Guided hikes were informative. The food was uniformly fantastic, as were the cocktails! Bosque attracts a great group of guests – interesting folks, willing to make the trip to this relatively remote location. Getting to know our fellow guests was a highlight.
The owners, Kim and Phil, have created a truly special place. It’s relaxing in a way I have not experienced on other vacations. So many people on Trip Advisor seem to have returned to Bosque for multiple visits. I totally understand why. We’ll be back.
