My spouse and I spent last week at Bosque del Cabo in Costa Rica and found it to be a fantastic experience with nature, experiencing the raw beauty of the Osa rain forest. Stayed in their Casa Blanca unit; it was clean, comfortable and relaxing.
We found the staff to be exceptional, consistently helpful and refreshingly friendly. The naturalists were very informative and provided insight that enhanced our stay with a new appreciation for the diversity of the rain forest. Took several side trips off premises and the staff's recommendations were exactly what we found.
The food was equally exceptional and a great deal of care both in preparation and quality was evident. Particularly liked the evening meals that were prepared by their Costa Rican chef, however all of the meals were very good and plentiful.
The 30 minute drive along the "unimproved road" from Puerto Jimenez was the only thing we would improve on.
We focus our travel on nature oriented trips and have been on several excursions in Alaska, Canada and the US, however this was by far the best experience we have ever had, both in accommodation and opportunity to experience the natural world minimally impacted by man.
