First of all, this was a very cool place to stay at overall. The open air design of the lodge really connects you with nature, both in feeling and quite literally. Abraham and Liz are great hosts, and this place provides great service, and yummy food. The lodge itself is kept spotless, and cools down to a very comfortable level...

We spent 3 days and nights in the Osa penninsula, largely inspired by Barret Lawson's A Bird-Finding Guide to Costa Rica. This was the beginning of week 2 of our 15-day customized tour that was set up by Costa Rica Gateway,whom we also highly recommend. We had driven in a one-way rental car from Rancho Naturalista and the Savegre Mountain...

I wrote this for UK birding magazine "Birding World" Costa Rica is one of the best-known neotropical destinations with its well-maintained roads and network of protected areas, and a two-week trip can get you a haul of up to 540 species. However many groups fail to visit the Osa Peninsula located in the south-west in the Puntarenas Province on the...

Not much I can add to previous reviews, except to say it's all true. The place is amazing, and the owners take the time to make sure every guest has a great stay. The accommodations are comfortable, if somewhat spartan. I found it very pleasant, but others might not like the open air feeling.The food is outstanding, and the staff...

Just returned from a week in Costa Rica's Osa penisula staying at the Bosque del Rio Tigre. I went for the birding and the true rain forest experience and I was not disappointed. The lodge was magical with the rooms open to the forest but private for reading or relaxing. The birding was terrific - I saw 180 species, many...

Just returned from Bosque del Rio Tigre in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. I can't say enough about the comfort, cleanliness, clean smooth linens (washed by hand in pristine mountain water), and of course the food. Three meals a day, one more delicious than the next. Freshest ingredients with wonderful flavorful local spices. And way healthy! The lodge is tucked right...

This is a very rustic place, in the jungle, and the reason to go there is to enjoy the birds. This is a very rustic place, share bathroom, and no privacy, but the birds you will see and the food they will cook will make it up if you really really like nature. My husband and I didn't really know...

Bosque del Rio Tigre is a truly special place that will appeal to birders or anyone with an interest in nature. The lodge is set amidst the rainforest and and feels a part of it, yet is comfortable, clean, and has excellent food. Liz and Abraham are wonderful hosts, and the place has a relaxed, intimate feel. Feeders draw in...

Bosque del rio Tigre is the most extraordinary place I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. We arrived in heavy rain. The 4WD taxi that ordinarily fords the river couldn't -- the river was too high. So, we were ferried across in yellow inflatable kayaks by host Abraham. We were soon settled in our room: the outside walls are half...

As a 'city-girl' traveling alone on my first visit to Costa Rica and first time birding in the tropics I made Bosque del Rio Tigre the center of my trip - staying there for 5 nights in February 2011 - and it was the perfect choice for me. Hosts Liz & Abraham made me feel right at home in their...

A very small specialty rainforest lodge oriented towards nature observation and birding. We provide very personal attention,excellent meal service and guiding. The lodge is situated outside a small village on the Rio Tigre and is completely surrounded by the forest. We have a maximum capacity for 12 guests. All 4 upstairs rooms and the two cabins are designed for nature viewing and open to the forest on 1 or more sides. Upstairs rooms have shared baths and the cabins have private baths. Cleanliness and guest's comfort are our goals. You will have access to many kilometers of trails both on our 13 hectare forested property and on the properties of our partners. ... more   less
