I have been to this place a few times and I certainly want to come here again. Located near the boundary of the Corcovado park, the lodge is a perfect place to visit for those who are interested in exploring the nature of Osa. With the park access being limited compared to what it used to be a few years... More

What a place! Set in the forest next to the river we could bird at pre-dawn from our room. Beds are comfortable, food is first-rate, service wonderful. We were a group of four, stayed for three nights and enjoyed different highlights each day (cotinga, tinamou, poison-dart frogs, ant swarms, etc.). A little hard to get to but well worth the...

We stayed at Bosque del Rio Tigre for 2 nights in February, 2016. The birding was excellent especially with the help of Ulysses. We saw almost all the local endemic birds and photographed many of them (107 bird species in 2 days, including 37 lifers). Also, saw and photographed a Tayra one day. The lodge is basic, yet comfortable. There... More

Traveled here with my husband and sister. It was right at the beginning of the season, so for the first two nights, we were the only guests. What an amazing experience! We booked the "Lazy Birder" package, so had one excursion into the local area each day. The rest of the time we sat in the lodge or cooled off... More

This lodge provided exactly what we were looking for -accessibility to nature and feeling part of the jungle amid the safety provided by wonderful experienced guides.

Our stay at this Lodge was the highlight of our trip, which was organized by a private tour company. We think that some aspects of our review are somewhat slanted by the fact that we were the only guests and enjoyed the privacy, as we didn't have to share the bathrooms or showers. Nevertheless, LIz has created an amazing place.... More
