Bosque del Cabo has ten beautifully crafted thatched-roof bungalows; each is privately set among lush gardens; offering stunning ocean views, modern bathrooms with delightful outdoor garden showers, and porches furnished with hammocks and easy chairs. Set high on a cliff overlooking the confluence of the mighty Pacific and the Golfo Dulce, these romantic nature lodge bungalows are stirred by warm tropical breezes that echo with the rhythms of the pounding surf below.
Board your flight to Puerto Jimenez. You will be met at the airstrip and transferred to the lodge for check in.
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 rainforest.
More than 350 species of birds have been identified in the area and monkeys, coatis, kinkajous, agoutis, and sloths are daily visitors. The hotel’s hiking trails lead you through the forest to deserted beaches on both the Golfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. Nearby attractions include the wild Pacific coast with tide pools, caves and waterfalls, calm sandy gulf beaches, surfing, kayaking, deep sea fishing, sailboat trips, hiking, horseback riding, tree top canopy and much more…
Enjoy the following days at leisure to explore the gorgeous area surrounding the lodge and enjoy some of the activities offered to guests.
Do you want to catch a Sailfish? Or learn how to surf while Scarlet Macaws fly overhead and you enjoy the stunning view of the rugged rainforest coastline descending to the gorgeous blue Pacific shore?
Do you dream of riding a horse through dense rainforest until you find an opening that takes you to an amazingly beautiful and deserted beach? Maybe you just really want a guide to show you that beautiful and elusive Baird’s Trogon (and the Chestnut-mandibled Toucan, the Red-capped Manakin and the Laughing Falcon… of course!)?
Bosque del Cabo has it all here for you. You can go for the really active and thrilling adventures, such as zipping through the rainforest to alight on our 110 foot high tree platform or descend a natural rock wall as you follow the course of a beautiful waterfall, or try more tame ventures such as a leisurely sunset tour around the Bosque grounds or a relaxing kayak tour around the Golfo Dulce. And you can even try our totally relaxing activities such as having a jungle massage or shopping for local crafts in our gift shop. We will do our best to set up all the tours you want once you get to the lodge. The only tour that we recommend setting up in advance of your stay is sport fishing (due to limited number of boats and captains).
Another day to explore the amazingly diverse Osa Peninsula. 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 zipline 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.
After breakfast, transfer back to Puerto Jimenez for your flight to San Jose, or ask your consultant about continuing overland to the Chiriqui region of Panama.
