This was our second trip to Costa Rica, Guanacaste area being our first trip. This was an amazing area to live in for a week. Being woken up in the morning by the Tucans and monkeys was absolutely amazing. The staff at the lodge were extremely nice and dedicated to making your stay relaxing. The pleasure was having the same people on a daily basis and within the first day everyone new your name and by the second they new what you liked and didn't like. We were told that the lodge can host about 50 or so guests but what was amazing was you only saw them at maybe lunch but eveyone comes together at dinner. I would see people at dinner that I had not seen before, but they had been there the same time. The only thing that kept this place from being a true paradise to me was the distance to the beach. If I could have walked from my Cabina right out to the surf it would have been a true paradise. I am not sure if a place exists but this was sure close to it. After reading about the ants and bugs I was a little concerned. We did not have any problems with either while we were there. We stayed in the Gecko Cabina and it was great for us. Thank you Kim and Philip for making our stay wonderful and to all the staff at Bosque we miss you guys and gals.

Room Tip: Prepare yourself for the ride from Port Jimenez to the resort.

This was our third visit to Bosque del Cabo, and as usual, we had and amazing time!!!! This is the GRAND DAME OF THE RAINFOREST LODGES. Bosque del Cabo has it all! Here, you will see the most incrediable wildlife...... Monkeys, Peccaries, Anteaters, Coatis, Agoutis, Frogs, Geckos, Lizards, Snakes, Butterflies, Dophins, Whales, Sea Turtles, and much much more. The abundance of wildlife is astounding. Puma sitings are a daily occurence! One of the members of our family sited this magnificent animal on his arrival, this year. Amazing! The landscape of the lodge is breathtaking, sitting high on a peninsula over looking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Most Cabinas sit on the edge with the most amazing views. The waves will lull you to sleep at night. The grounds are covered with red ginger, birds of paradise, orchids, helliconias, coconut palms, almond trees, and every other tropical plant you can think of, and they are all growing wild in their natural habitat. You can hike to 3 pristine beaches, with black sand and striking turquoise water on the Gulfo Dulce Trail. You can also walk on the wild Pacific, with it's warm tidal pools on the Pacific Trail. Although the lodge is set in a primal rainforest, the place is run like a 5 star resort. You may think a lodge in such a remote area would not offer great service. Quite the contrary! The staff at Bosque del Cabo are fantastic and offer 5 star service! The same staff is there year after year. That alone speaks volumes about how well this lodge is run. The people of BDC make everyone feel special. To revisit, is like coming back to old friends and family. They also have the most knowledgable guides, including an on site biologist, who writes his own blog on the animals, reptiles, and insects of the rainforest. If good food is one of your vacation requirements, you are in for a culinary treat. Three amazing meals are served daily, with dinners being nothing less than magical. Entrees are served on banana leaves adorned with tropical flowers, and candles. All of these things make up the most incredible, amazing, trip you will ever take, and never forget. This one is definitely on the Bucket List! It just doesn't get any better than this!

Room Tip: All room choices are great!

We were married at the Casa Miramar - just the 2 of us with one other couple in December '11. Kim (owner) helped us arrange everything from a private yoga session on our deck in the morning, massages, the lawyer, the flowers and a private chef to cook our celebration dinner. We had photo's taken around the gorgeous property by a local photographer, again arranged by Kim. Everything was perfect, peaceful and fun. The staff were on top of everything and bent over backwards to make sure every detail was taken care of. This was our second visit to the rainforest lodge - we'll certainly be back!

Room Tip: Casa Miramar for more than 2 people, Congo if its just one couple

We were not staying at this lodge but had our wedding ceremony here. We planned to have an private outdoor ceremony and when we arrived (all dressed in our wedding attire) we were all blown away at the beauty of the place. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. It was a dream come true!

Ride is about 1 hour to lodge on bumpy road, which went through river/creeks 3 times. Part of the adventure. The lodge has excellent Staff and is very attentive to requests. Grounds and trails are wonderful with wild life aplenty. View is stunning from Cabinas out to Pacific. The beds are comfortable and I loved the outdoor shower even though it doesn’t have hot water for my spoiled butt :0) It was warm and good enough. If you are a birder, do go out with Carlos in the morning. If you are interested in their masks in gift shop, get one here. Better quality, selection and actually less expensive than I found elsewhere.
