This is a full scale eco resort set on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean in large forested area. Although it is not on the beach, it is possible to hike both to the Pacific Ocean and to a bay area. The facility itself has many trails within the confines of the property and an abundance of wild life and...

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 4 nights over the Christmas holiday at this delightful eco-lodge. Most of the accomodations are individual cabanas perched on a cliff high above the Pacific Ocean where constant breezes keep the rooms cool most of the time, even at night (with no a/c). Our cabana was the deluxe Congo Cabin, which...

This is our second stay at Bosque del Cabo. This time we stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every minute again: the gorgeous grounds, wonderful hiking/walking trails, guided nature and bird walks, extremely friendly staff, and congenial guests. We stayed in the same deluxe casita with a stunning view of the Pacific, as last time. The pool is small but...

While choosing Costa Rica for the vacation destination we didn't know that our transportation inside of the country would rely not on a car but the internal airlines like Sansa and Nature Air. On our way from the Peninsula de Nicoya to Peninsula de Osa we saved lots of time and nerves by taking a domestic flight from Liberia airport...

We had the pleasure of staying at Bosque del Cabo in late January. Four of us got to experience the tranquility of Casa Blanca. We had beautiful sunsets and Howler serenades each sunrise. Seeing to many things to name, we left a day too early, as the puma was sighted the day after our departure. We will just have to...

It just doesn't get any better than this. The property, the accomdations, the food and the staff make for a perfect stay. We were in a house - 2 full bedrooms and baths, living and kitchen area. Great for 2 couples. Saw a cabina and it was great also. All meals are in the dining room - the food is...

This was my second trip to Bosque del Cabo and this time I was smart enough to go in the dry season! Everything was exactly as I had hoped and it all exceeded my boyfriend's expectations. The naturalist Philip, and awesome bird guide Carlos were helpful, patient and entertaining as always. Philip's knowledge of the Osa ecosystem is overwhelming and...

Generally, we don't like all-inclusive resorts located miles from anywhere without any options. Yet based on the recommendation of someone who shares many of our non-negotiable requirements, we selected the Bosque Del Cabo for our winter escape. On the remote Osa Peninsula, it's surrounded by rich rain forests on three sides and the Pacific Ocean on the fourth. Basically, the...

When I arrived at Bosque, I was handed a raincoat and umbrella and the greeting, "we're saving your dinner, but you must go on the bat, snake and spider tour...we have a professor here from England who is an expert who will be your guide."

I had never been to an Eco-Lodge before and I have to admit was a little skeptical about the whole concept -- i am used to having TVs, air conditioning and bars at the beach with jet skis and hang gliding. Nothing prepared me for how enjoyable the experience was. The grounds were lovely, the cabins well appointed and comfortable...

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
