The Osa Peninsula and Golfo Dulce area is a fantastic region with quite a few national parks and reserves.
Bosque del Rio Tigre Lodge offers access to a little corner of Corcovado National Park on the Northwest side of the Peninsula.
Often called ¨The most biologically intense place on Earth¨, the Osa Peninsula offers great habitat diversity and intense climatic
conditions that have generated such concentration of wildlife.
The Bosque del Rio Tigre Lodge area gets the benefits of being right next to Corcovado National Park, the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve,
and not far from the influence of the Golfo Dulce. The Rio Tigre enhances as well the habitat and as a result the concentration of birds
in Dos Brazos, where the lodge is located, is impressive. This is really a place for specialties!
Added to the highly diverse natural value of this location, the owners of Bosque del Rio Tigre are great birders and hosts, their names
are Liz Jones and Abraham Gallo. They have built a nice natural lodge that really submerge you into the real reason for visiting the area:
the birdlife and nature in general. The main lodge has 4 bedrooms with shared bathrooms on the second floor, they are open air and mosquito
nets are placed over the beds to ensure you sleep relaxingly without worrying about insects while you enjoy listening to nature and feeling the cool evening breeze.
Offering primary rainforest, secondary forest, lagoons, river side, new growth, cattle pastures, and even not too far away mangroves,
Bosque del Rio Tigre is quite an exciting destination, excellent for regional endemics and country endemics. Liz, Abraham, or one of
their expert guides will help you find the birds, they really know the spots!
To access the lodge in Dos Brazos you will need ideally a 4x4, the drive is not bad in the last stretch from the main road 245
(which leads to Puerto Jimenez), however it is bumpy and towards the end depending on the river level you might have to leave
your car behind, Liz and Abraham will indicate you who to leave it with. In you plan to drive there on your own we will provide
you with detailed driving instructions. Unless you are exploring more locations in the Southern Pacific Area of the country which
would justify having a vehicle, we would otherwise recommend you fly into Puerto Jimenez, we will help you coordinate with Bosque del Rio Tigre the pickup and drop off.
