Client comments and reviews
We were prepared for the cold nights having been here before but the wildlife was even better that our stay in 2011. - TM (February 2017)
We loved the wildlife here. Although your recommendation to take warm clothing was appreciated I don't think we were prepared enough...it was cold! Interestingly enough even though there was no choice for lunch or dinner we both thought the food was the best of the whole trip. - AM (March 2011)
Bosque de Paz is a good chill-out place for a couple of nights. The very friendly and accommodating owner and his wife offered a service above and beyond the call of duty. Here we relaxed, even as we walked the trails in the cloud forest, and admired the many species of hummingbird that frequent the gardens and at night watched the Pacas that came to feed near the edge of the woodland. - DD (April 2009)
