  • School Age Action
  • Cool for Teens
  • Hotels with In-Room Kitchens
  • Bosque del Cabo is comprised of 18 independent accommodations (4 villas and 14 cabins) on the gorgeous and remote Osa Peninsula. There are beautiful ocean and jungle views from all areas of the property. A long list of adventure activities is available including guided hikes through the rainforest, dolphin and whale watching, and surf lessons. The Osa Peninsula is an important sea turtle conservation area and at certain times of year, families can help get just-hatched turtles safely to the sea. Villas have kitchens, although the food offered is excellent. This remote part of Costa Rica is filled with incredible wildlife. Guests can also access Corcovado National Park from here via car or a short flight.
