Their story

Bosque del Cabo is one of the finest and longest-running eco-lodges in Costa Rica. It is the ultimate example of turning endangered land into a thriving ecological reserve. Phil Spier bought 250 acres in the 1980s in hopes of restoring the land and sharing the magic of the Osa Peninsula with guests. Phil met his wife Kim several years later, and together they built up the Bosque land reserve to 750 acres. They still live and raise their family on the grounds of the lodge. Bosque only uses 1% of its vast land for buildings and guest areas. The rest of the land is set aside as protected forest.   

Bosque del Cabo has participated in many conservation efforts, from land restoration and preservation to renewable energy. The land is part of the Osa Wildlife Reserve, which acts as a corridor for wildlife within Costa Rica. The Spiers pay guards to protect the land from poachers from the forest to the beach. 

Bosque del Cabo shows the lifelong passion the Spiers have for nature. The land that was once degraded and mismanaged has become a wildlife refuge and cozy eco-lodge. Land which decades ago was clear-cut for use as pasture and farmland has been restored to a thriving forest full of the glorious biodiversity that the Osa is famed for around the world. There are even frequent wildcat sightings in and around the lodge, which is thrilling for guests and incredible for conservation on the peninsula. The epitome of an eco-lodge, there is no doubt that Bosque del Cabo is driven by values over anything else. Read more about them here.
