This was our second trip to Bosque del Cabo, and it was just as wonderful the second time as it was two years ago. Bosque has a fantastic location - it is beautiful, remote, peaceful, pristine, and full of wildlife. We had monkeys hanging around the trees right outside our cabina.
The walking trails are extensive, and there is something interesting to see no matter which one you take. Two of the trails lead down to almost deserted beaches where you can cool off in the water.
The staff at Bosque are so kind and attentive. It is hard to say goodbye to them when you leave. The food is excellent - try the banana pancakes for breakfast, the tuna melt sandwich, the curry chicken papaya sandwich, and the avocado sandwich for lunch. The drinks at the bar are always good - plenty strong and reasonably priced.
We love the fact that at Bosque, you spend so much time outdoors. The dining area is open-air, the private showers are outside, and you can sleep with your cabina doors wide open if you like. It is like luxury camping.
I cannot wait to return!
