If I could rate Bosque del Cabo higher than 5 stars I would. I have been here for three weeks and have enjoyed every minute. And it seems so have all the other visitors I met, ... the Tech entrepreneur having a much need break with his family, the honey moon couples, old friends reuniting , the hedge-fund manager recently...

This hotel is very remote so it offers good birding and wildlife contact. The rooms are nicely furnished however the showers are outside and there is no air conditioning. Normally this would not be a problem for my wife and I however the first week of dry season was anything but dry giving rain most days and 100% humidity the...

Much to our surprise and delight we discovered a beautifully maintained meticulously detailed ecolodge. Waking up in the morning to...

Bosque del Cabo is a treat any time of year, but this year we took a chance on cornering some dry weather in September, typically one of the two rainiest months on the Osa (the other being October). Jackpot! We had 5 days of beautiful, pleasant sunny days and cool, breezy evenings. September is a very low month for this...

If Bosque Del Cabo was the only place we visited in Costa Rica, I would feel that I had experienced the best of everything the country has to offer. This 800-acre private rainforest at the tip of the Osa Peninsula gives way to beautiful gardens with thatched buildings and a dozen individual thatched cottages with private decks overlooking the sea...

Abundant wildlife, gorgeous scenery, fantastic adventures (we loved the Pacific ocean trails, the surfing lessons, the early morning bird hikes, and the rainforest canopy platform), delicious food, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and comfortable cabina.

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
