Costa Rica Accommodation,
Osa Peninsula

Bosque del Cabo Lodge


Bosque del Cabo is a premier Costa Rica Eco Lodge offering a romantic rainforest getaway and a naturalist’s dream come true. 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.

Bosque del Cabo has ten beautifully crafted thatched-roof bungalows – each privately set among lush gardens – offering stunning ocean views, modern bathrooms with delightful outdoor garden showers, and porches furnished with hammocks and easy chairs. And for the ultimate in jungle living there are two rental houses: Casa Blanca and Casa Miramar.  Casa Blanca, a well-appointed 2 bedroom/2 bath house has a fully-equipped kitchen, living room area, large wraparound porch with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean, and 2 large bedroom suites on either side of the house.  Casa Miramar offers a home with an artistic layout of three unique “casitas” featuring three bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living room area, and many porches and observation decks with amazing sunset views. There is also a tropical garden, in which two garden cabins and a two-bedroom garden house are available.

The newly renovated solar-powered restaurant serves delicious meals in a friendly (and eco-friendly!) atmosphere.  Breakfast offers a variety of fresh, local fruits and your choice of typical Costa Rican or North American fare.  Lunch in house or have it packed to go. Dinners are always a special event; everyone gathers to share stories of the day, while enjoying a plentiful and delicious meal served by candlelight.

Local Wildlife

The Osa Peninsula is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. Boasting over 700 species of trees, 365+ species of birds (with several endemic species), 117 species of reptiles, and almost 10,000 species of insects, the peninsula is home to 100,000-acre Corcovado National Park, known as the crown jewel of the Costa Rican national parks system. The nature lodge’s lush gardens, full of tropical fruits and flowers, attract many of the colourful resident wildlife species. Residents of the area include flocks of macaws, toucans, and parrots. Monkeys, coatis, kinkajous, agoutis, and sloths are daily visitors. Peccaries are often seen, and from time to time even jungle cats (like pumas, jaguarondis, ocelots and jaguars) are spotted on the property.

Optional Activities

Trails on the property allow for further exploration into the rainforest, where you can enjoy refreshing natural pools and waterfalls, along with an abundance of Costa Rican wildlife. You can spend your days hiking and exploring the natural beauty of Bosque del Cabo and the surrounding area, whiz through the air on our zip line into the tree platform, take a walk across our suspension bridge to the Tropical Garden, or just relax by the pool or on your deck, sip a tropical drink, and watch the macaws fly by. Guests can also enjoy surfing, kayaking, waterfall rappelling, tree climbing, deep-sea fishing, boat trips, hiking, horseback riding and more.

Perfect place for relaxation with a lot of optional extras and well described walking routes in grand variety. We didn’t do many tours as we wanted to relax but our friend loved the horse riding on the beach. The yoga classes overlooking the ocean were beautiful, and accommodation in Casablanca was breath-taking. Food and staff were both lovely.
