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...

Bosque del Cabo exceeded our expectations for this visit at the end of February. This is a jewel of a lodge located on the Osa Peninsula in the south west of Costa Rica. The lodge has everything you would want on a natural history holiday with a good bit of comfort. It is located on the edge of the Corcovado...

My husband and I found Bosque del Cabo almost 10 years ago on a trip through Costa Rica. We have always remembered it as a special place and we waited until our daughter was old enough to go back with us. This time we decided to spend the entire vacation here as it is unique and magical place. The lodge...

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
