Bosque del Cabo exceeded our expectations for this visit at the end of February. This is a jewel of a lodge located on the Osa Peninsula in the south west of Costa Rica. The lodge has everything you would want on a natural history holiday with a good bit of comfort. It is located on the edge of the Corcovado...

Bosque del Cabo exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived. This is truly a magical piece of property filled to the brim with amazing animals, plants and primary and secondary rainforest. It was everything we wanted Costa Rica to be. We stayed at both Tucan and Congo cabinas and we loved them both! Beautiful, clean, comfortable and integrated with...

As first time visitors to Costa Rica, we were looking for a memorable rainforest experience. Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge is that and much more. We stayed in the La Paz Garden Cabina for four nights and loved every moment. The owners originally built this cabin as a personal getaway, but we are glad they decided to share.

4th time back to Bosque and again the best ever .... this time with grandchildren who were enthralled with the rainforest, wildlife and beach experiences. Staff was, as usual, superior in how they related to guests and the facilities, food and activities were excellent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bosque del Cabo is a romantic getaway and a naturalist’s dream, come true. Crowning a point 500 feet above where the Golfo Dulce meets the Pacific Ocean, nestled in the unspoiled jungles of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula is a paradise found. Located in a unique and fortunate position at the very tip of the Osa Peninsula in the southern Pacific region of Costa Rica, this 750+ acre forest reserve features private, spacious bungalows and gorgeous houses perched atop the cliffs of Cabo Matapalo, each with beautiful ocean views, tropical breezes and the rainforest at your doorstep; or choose beautiful and rustic garden view accommodations surrounded by thriving rainforests. Hiking trails lead you through the forest to deserted beaches on both the Golfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. Bosque del Cabo, which opened its doors as a hotel in 1990, is owner operated and dedicated to forest preservation. ... more   less
