So you've been searching for a way to experience the Neotropical
Rain Forest without four days of hiking with 100 pounds of gear
... Bosque del RíoTigre
Sanctuary & Lodge Dos Brazos, Costa Rica
We've built THE place for you!
Our lodge, Bosque del Río Tigre, is located on the Tigre River
just outside the small town of Dos Brazos on the Peninsula de
Osa. This remote location in the Reserva of Corcovado National
Park gives the visitor a truly exhilarating sense of the tropical
rainforest. The lodge itself is completely surrounded by primary
and secondary woods.
We can accommodate up to ten people but rarely have more than
four or five people at a time so we are able to maintain a friendly
and family like atmosphere. Quality food, comfortable accommodations
and the full attention of our staff combined with the spectacular
mountain setting will make your stay the high point of your vacation.
Our 31 acre sanctuary includes both secondary and primary forest,
numerous trails, creeks and lagoons, a refreshing 50 foot waterfall
and a collection of local orchids. We have living in the sanctuary
three types of cats, pizotes, wild pigs, poison dart frogs, monkeys
and an abundance of birds. The whole area is also one of the BEST
spots for bird watching in Costa Rica. The two story lodge, surrounded
by tropical forest is designed for rustic luxury with 4 private
rooms, shared baths, community lounging and dining areas, and
an extensive reference library on neotropical flora and fauna.
The second story rooms are built with open windows on two sides
for easy bird watching and better air circulation. Yes, we provide
generous mosquito netting. We also offer a small cabin with a
private bath. Our kitchen provides appetizing meals in a variety
of cuisines. Vegetarian meals are also available.
$66/ person per night. Includes: 3 meals, two beers or sodas,
snacks, fruit drinks and a short nature hike or gold panning lessson
once during your stay.
During the "green season," May through November, we charge $55
Excursion Rates: $20 per person for 3 or 4 hours and $35 per person
for 4 to 6 hours. Price includes use of binoculars, field guides
and snacks and/or sandwiches.
Getting there is half the fun. Right? You can pick up a road map
of Costa Rica at the airport or at any travel agent. We can send
you a copy of a rough local map that can help you find us once
you are close to Puerto Jiménez. Give yourself a full day to travel
anywhere in Costa Rica and plan on relaxing and enjoying the drive.
I know it looks like a small country but there are few road signs
and the roads can be rough with occasional holdups due to landslides,
disabled vehicles and accidents. It all works out just fine if
you have the right attitude. I've had a great time talking with
people and bird watching during those holdups. Generally it takes
6 to 7 hours to get to our place by car, 9 hours by bus and 45
minutes by air.
