This was our third visit to Costa Rica and our second visit to Bosque del Cabo. As we only had a week, we decided to spend all of it here, as we had such a fabulous experience before. It surpassed our already high expectations! This place is just beautiful..and unforgettable. Views of the ocean, gorgeous garden, private cabinas surrounded by...

Bosque del Cabo is probably one of the most amazing and memorable places I've ever stayed in. A haven of nature, off the grid sustainability, delicious food, attentive service and fantastic bungalows. Our first few nights were in the coveted Congo bungalow and we felt like jungle royalty with the huge deck overlooking the ocean and loved watching the monkeys...

Our family of 4 stayed here in April 2016 and we highly recommend it. The perfect blend between comfort, beautiful setting and accomodations, and nature. Not too fancy, but just right. Food was excellent, staff friendly and excellent, and a gorgeous setting. We were in a house with a stunning view of the pacific ocean, and monkeys traveled through the...

We recently returned from a two-night here with our family, 2 adults and 2 children ages 13 and 16. We stayed in the Aracari bungalow which was fantastic. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us with two separate bedrooms, plenty of sitting areas and storage spaces, a front porch and a back deck with beautiful ocean views. Everything was very...

The scenery and animals were amazing, the accommodations were gorgeous, and the food was wonderful. The staff is kind and friendly, and go out of their way to be helpful. It was a nice balance between...

This resort was amazing because of the wonderful people who work there, the great facilities, the natural beauty, the food, the trails, and of course the scarlet macaws and the monkeys! Our family of 4 (2 adults and our 20ish sons) spent 4 nights at Bosque del Cabo. Our first night was in the cabinas and the remaining 3 were...

We stayed three nights on this property. It's remote and that makes it a great way to disconnect from usual life. You cannot possibly avoid multiple animal sightings ( "oh there go the spider monkeys overhead again. Here comes another pair of macaws flying by with a lot of vocalizing, oh look more coatis over there" ..etc) We highly recommend...

Our sibling vacation (3 sibs, 3 spouses) had a fabulous visit here for three nights, end of March, and end of rainy season. It was hot, but the forest and ocean breezes ameliorate that, and the insect population is reduced, too. It was humid, too, but the wash dried on the "solar dryer" (clothesline). The hosts and guides were excellent,...

We spent 6 incredible nights at Bosque del Cabo with our 3 children. We stayed in El Pizote for our accommodation and we did not want to leave! We woke up to howler monkeys every day and within the first hour there we saw 3/4 types of monkeys in the Osa region, macaws, toucans, and pizotes to name a few....

First impression was of spacious, sunlit grounds and intriguing and impressive wood and thatched architecture. We had a standard room which was large, airy and comfortable, a large balcony/deck with views of the forest and sea, and a palm which was visited daily by coatis and monkeys. All the staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful, the food very good and...

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
