We have chosen the Bosuqe for our 5 day stay on Osa peninsula because of the quality and the large set of trails which they maintain. It even exceeded our high expectations. Staff: fantastic people, very friendly, do their work in the background but are always present if they're needed. Property: the best which I've seen in Costa Rica. Beautiful...

We ended our Costa Rica honeymoon at Bosque del Cabo. The property was beautiful! We often saw wildlife right on the property, including many birds, small animals and wild pigs. The lodge is set high up on a cliff, and I believe most if not all cabins have a lovely ocean view. It is possible to hike to the ocean...

A stay at Bosque del Cabo is one of those things some of us spend months, even a year or more, looking forward to. Once there, our only care in the world is to soak up every bit of pura vida we can-- surrounded by fabulous wildlife sightings, gracious owners and staff, delicious food, lovely grounds, fun casas and cabinas,...

We joined a group of 16 others for a Fodor's Travel Guide GetTogether at Bosque. I can't imagine a more spectacular lodge for us to finally meet face-to-face after posting online for so many years! The wildlife at Bosque is simply outstanding - 4 species of monkeys, agoutis, a tamadua, bands of peccaries, toucans, large groups of coatis, scarlet macaws,...

Bosque Del Cabo was a very unique hotel that will stay in my heart forever. The wildlife is amazing and monkeys and birds can be seen right outside of your cabin. I stayed at casa miramar and got a visit from a black labrador from the town down on the beach, it was trained and u can give it to...

My bf and I came to BdC for the Fodor's get-together at the end of June/early July 2013. This was my second visit, and it was even more amazing than my first time. There's just something very special about the Osa Peninsula and BdC, in particular. And the stay was made even more special because of the other guests and...

My 13th trip to Bosque del Cabo didn't result in a puma sighting - always next time! - but it was lucky. Bosque was gracious enough to welcome our group (18 people) with all the warmth and professionalism that they have always had, whether I was solo or with a group. We stayed a week, with only one day that...

Although my last visit was in January 2012, TripAdvisor will not let me select a date that far back. We will be returning in January 2014... Having visited many eco-resort type places, all that I can say is that Bosque is something special. So special in fact that it is the first spot that my family has ever decided to...

This was one of the most amazing places I have ever been. Luckily, every other room at the resort was taken, so we got a suite type room that was about a half mile away from everything else. You had to hike through the forest to get there. At first we thought it would be bad to be so far...

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
