Trip Report Trip Report Costa Rica-Puerto Jimenez, Bosque del Cabo

Jump to last reply

Early December 2013---this was our second trip to CR and I wanted to focus on the Osa. Because we are over 65, I decided it was time to splurge on Bosque del Cabo. One of our adult sons was able to come with us for the first seven days of the trip.

Our first stop was Puerto Jimenez. We came in on a red-eye flight and had our driver pick us up at SJO so we could drowse our way down to PJ. This worked out well; we got to see the countryside on the way down, have our first gallo pinto, and see the crocodiles at Tarcoles Bridge. Our driver was Christian Martinez of costaricadrivers.net. He was less expensive than the other services but was good.

We arrived in PJ about two or three and checked into the bungalow at Cabinas Jimenez. It is a great location, very close to everything, we used the kayaks to go over to the mangroves. Really enjoyed the town. Scarlet macaws and parrots. People, motorcycles, dogs all over the street. A place where it helps to speak a bit of Spanish. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. A pond of caiman where we saw one eating an opposum.

We enjoyed the cacao tour at Finca Kobe, the Golfo Dulce tour to the animal sanctuary (bottlenose dolphins swimming with the boat) and just walking around town. The deck on our cabina was a good place to see geckoes after dark. We also a tamandua by the airfield after dark.

I will continue in replies.
