Bosque was as close to paradise as we've ever come. There was plenty to do, but some of our greatest pleasure came from simply lying in bed with all the doors open, feeling the warm ocean breeze, hearing the rustle of the jungle, and seeing the monkeys, toucans, parrots, and macaws pass by, They have a first rate staff, from...

This is truly a lovely place but was just not the right vacation for us. We went with our son and his girlfriend who wanted an eco-lodge. The first night we arrived there was a 6 inch scorpion next to his bed. He killed it and the hotel was great about calming them down. Scoprions are give a nasty bite...

Stayed in "lapa 'cabin for 3 nights. It has a great view and I think it is more private than some of the others. However if you want to see a sunset this is not the best cabin in march . As many people have already said the food is amazing and so is the service. Wild life is abundant...

I cannot wait to visit Bosque Del Cabo again! Had the best time ever last November when I visited with a couple of friends. I normally don't like to write reviews but I felt the need to share this perfect vacation spot with others. This place is beautiful just like the pictures show but more impressive to me is the...

My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica in May of 2013 and stayed at Bosque del Cabo for 3 nights towards the end of a 10 day trip. It is definitely a bit of a splurge financially, but worth every penny. Neither of us had ever spent so much on a hotel, but it is really incredible what it...

All of the staff were polite and helpful, our regular servers even remembered our names which was nice and made for a comfortable stay. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We stayed 5 nights - 2 in "Lapa" and 3 in "Tucan". The deck of Lapa had trees close all around and one morning we had capuchin monkeys...

I am coming back. Especially because I wanted to cry as we left. Only 4 nights felt like I had moved in with the the white faced, howler and spider monkeys.

It's quite a trip out to this place but that's what you want if you're going for being with nature. The place is beautiful. Plenty of trails and activities to sign up for. I felt absolutely safe. View is amazing as it sits atop the cliff edge looking over the ocean. Wondering wildlife...Although I got stung by a scorpion (non...

Everything about this hotel is excellent. We were met with a 4x4 at their office in Porto Jimenez for the 45 minute transfer to the lodge. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Our cabin was superb - large, private, comfortable and with a stunning view (monkeys, scarlet macaws and toucans just above us, and one day...

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
