Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica


All meals are included in the tariff if you're staying in the cabins, and are served in the restaurant. If you're staying in a Casa you can self-cater, or add a meal package to your stay.

Breakfast is served from 7-9am, though a simple early breakfast is available for those who are going off on early morning activities. There’s juice and fruit followed by a choice of hot breakfasts, including ‘the famous banana pancakes’, which went down very well.

Lunch is served from 12-1pm (and for up to an hour after that if you're late back from an excursion); there’s also an all-day menu of snacks, dips and chips between lunch and dinner. There’s tea and coffee available throughout the day for you to help yourself - in the afternoons, banana cake might be on offer too.

Dinner is at 7pm, a generous buffet with a choice of meat and fish dishes, together with salads and potatoes. Restaurant staff can be flexible if guests don’t eat meat or bread: just let them know. The food is Costa Rican and international in style; themed menus appear throughout the week: Asian flavours, Italian dishes, fish options or North American style.

Save to favouritesPrintMailBosque del Cabo Rainforest LodgeOwner Phil Spier arrived from Florida at this spot on the beautiful Osa Peninsula, attracted by the amazing rainforest. His dream was to establish a sustainable organic black pepper farm and rehabilitate the land, but realised such a small scale business needed to diversify so built 3 cabinas. He could little imagine that 20 years later he’d have a successful business attracting guests wanting to chill out amongst the wildlife and enjoy a range of forest-centric [i!!activities]. But here, in beautiful tropical gardens elevated above the Pacific, you can choose between [r:CO020:cabins], offering simple comforts, or [i!! villas], fully equipped for self-catering. Sprawl out on a hammock or rock in the wicker chairs. There are plenty of trails through the lodge’s own reserve to explore the primary and secondary rainforest or reach the beach - and the resident biologist Philip Davison gives a fascinating tour: ‘a 4-hour crash course in tropical ecology’! Don’t expect luxury. Do expect a fantastic laid-back adventure.
