Client Testimonials

  • As the name suggests, Bosque De Paz is indeed a ‘Forest Of Peace’. It is a hidden jewel of Costa Rica that we enjoyed staying at for 3 days. A small property that makes you feel welcome starting from the time you check in. We received a warm welcome by the property owner Mr Federico (I hope I got his name right) who personally made sure we were well attended to. The rooms are well appointed, so are the bathrooms. It is a birders paradise with a variety of Hummingbirds and birds of other kinds flocking the property through the day. They have a number of trails to explore and wildlife to see and experience along the way. Food was made to order and better that what we expected. Staff were friendly and made sure we were attended to all the time. A true paradise and a place that does more than enough justice to it name. Pros - Location location location - Birdwatching - Hiking - Food Cons - Can’t think of any Net-net, definitely recommend it if your are a avid birders, wildlifer, hiker or someone who just wants to enjoy a few days in the lap of nature in Costa Rica.
