Had a wonderful time here in a beautiful cabin overlooking the sea called gecko which was very nice but fell short on the storage area for clothes and the bathroom was a bit tired. Hot water was a bit hit and miss but it didn't matter too much as it was so hot. Wildlife was amazing and we saw a...

We have stayed at Bosque several times. There is a large system of trails so you can go on your own, or use a guide. Plenty of wildlife to be seen on the trails, sitting on your patio, or wandering the grounds. Basque added an adult swimming pool so, if you want quiet time at the pool, you can have...

We visited the Osa Peninsula at the beginning of February to celebrate our honeymoon and lucked out getting a reservation at Bosque del Cabo for six nights. We were met at the Puerto Jiménez air strip by two gentleman in a Land Rover with an engine snorkel and knew in an instant that we were off to seclusion. The drive...

We spent three nights at Bosque del Cabo and wished we had planned for a longer trip. Would love to go back. The lodgings are super clean, beautifully furnished, very private, and include the delight of an outdoor shower supplied by solar heated water. The deck to our Cabina Sol overlooks the ocean and places one up above part of...

Seeing such excellent Trip Advisor reviews made us curious about Bosque del Cabo. Could it really be as good as all the reviews seemed to suggest??! Within a few minutes of our arrival we knew without doubt that it was absolutely going to live up to the reviews and exceed them. Casa Coco was our home for the (dismayingly short)three...

Beautiful large property in a remote area, lots of great hiking (don't miss Philip's Primary Forest walk!), enjoyed greatly the Pacific coast day (best done in the morning because it gets hot). Staff gives you a laminated map with excellent details for each trail, no getting lost. Went up to the east side platform where they do yoga one morning,...

After a rather tiring bus tour of Costa Rica we flew down to Puerto Jimenez and were brought by car to Bosque del Cabo. The moment we arrived it was being plunged into tranquility, with quiet, pampering, friendly, and a supremely welcoming and sweet staff. The abundance of wildlife here, whether you walk the trails, take guided walks, or simply...

Just left Bosque yesterday! Couldn't wait to post a review of this amazing resort. Every day of our 7 day stay was full of new experiences. After a late afternoon arrival and dinner, my wife and I settled in to a private and secluded cabina, and the next morning, we awoke to a host of sights and sounds that blew...

My two girlfriends and I just returned from our first trip to Bosque del Cabo. We had a wonderful experience and knew from the first night why so many of the people we met there have been coming every year for 5, 10, even 20 years to Bosque and to the Osa Peninsula. We stayed in Aracari, which is priced...

Bosque took my breath away from the moment we arrived until the sad moment we left three days later. The property - on a cliff overlooking the ocean - is stunning and in and of itself worth the price. Our cottage had a gorgeous view and hammock and we could hear the ocean all night. You can keep your doors...

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
