Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Location
Bosque del Cabo is on the beautiful Osa Peninsula, 22km (and a 1-hour drive on a dirt road, crossing multiple streams and ascending into rainforest slopes) from Puerto Jiménez.

By Air:
Puerto Jiménez (25km) is your closest airport, served by domestic flights. If you're coming from abroad you'll fly into San José Juan Santamaria International (350km) or Liberia (480km) - domestic flight connections from Liberia aren't as good.

From the Airport
Bosque del Cabo will pick you up at the tiny airstrip, for an extra charge.

By Car:
You could drive here from San José, but it would take around 8 hours, and the last stretch on Pensinsula Osa is very rough - see our car rental recommendations.

By Bus:
There is a daily bus service from San José (Barrio Mexico) at 12noon to Puerto Jiménez but it is 9 hours long and pretty tiring. The return service leaves Puerto Jiménez at 5am to go to San José.

Detailed directions will be sent to you when you book through i-escape.com.

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!http://www.i-escape.com/hotel.php?section=activities&hotel_key=CO020!activities]. But here, in beautiful tropical gardens elevated above the Pacific, you can choose between [r:CO020:cabins], offering simple comforts, or [i!http://www.i-escape.com/hotel.php?section=rooms&hotel_key=CO020#villas! 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.
