Fodor's Review

Convenient to the Bajo del Tigre nature trail and Meg's Stables, El Bosque's quiet, simple rooms are grouped around a central camping area. Rooms are dated, with floral bedding, white tile floors, and bland decor. A bridge crosses a stream and leads to the hotel. Brick-oven pizzas are served on the veranda.
