We arrived at Bosque del Cabo and were given our welcome drinks and our introduction to the rainforest lodge. Since we arrived before check-in, we had to wait a bit for our room, but we had lunch in the meantime. Afterwards, we settled into our private deluxe bungalow, Lapa. All of the classic and deluxe bungalows are perched on a cliffside, a short walking distance from the restaurant and pool areas.
The back of the bungalow - with its wrap-around deck and lower observation deck - overlooks the ocean with absolutely breathtaking views!
True to our bungalow's name, about the time we arrived was about the time the scarlet macaws (Lapa) arrived in the trees outside our bungalow. (These guys can be quite loud! But, that's what they do. I welcomed the photo opportunities! They are literally right there.)
The inside of the bungalow perfectly brought the allure of the outside in, with its doors that opened to nature.
When lying down in bed, the view was such that the ocean was right below you. Tropical relaxation at its finest...

The private outdoor showers were invigorating! There's nothing quite like taking a shower outside surrounded by plants and the skies above. Ahhh...
* * *Being on the secluded Osa Peninsula, we had one electrical outlet for the fan (which we did use) and for charging our camera batteries. You're not allowed to use hairdryers, hair irons, irons, etc. because there are no power lines running out there; the lodge produces their own solar and hydroelectric power. However, there is hot water for the showers.
Visit the Bosque del Cabo website for more information. They have an excellent FAQ that can most likely answer any questions you may have.
