Bosque del Cabo GTG

Hey Fodor's adventurers and BDC fans, it is not too soon to start making plans for the 2nd (so far) biannual Get Together at beautiful Bosque del Cabo on the OSA Peninsula! Hipvirgochick, tully, shillmac, and Mr. Shillmac will be meeting up for a full (yes!) week July 2-9, 2011. We always have a great time together, but it's even more fun to meet others from this forum, sort of a big, extended, dysfunctional family!

July is typically a great time to visit, and someone in our group is SURE to have a close encounter with a puma! Who's in?!

I can guarantee we'll take some goofy pics at the cat trap camera Hope we can meet up with some more fodorites this trip, we had a pretty good turn-out 2 years ago. Wine & bocas on the Miramar deck at sunset - good times!

Note shillmac doesn't mention exactly how long that tour will take

Anyone heard from Cam? Maybe she will be able to join us again this year.

Are you really going to do biannually? If so, I'll be there in 2013. Can't believe I'm going to miss this again

plum we will toast to you in spirit, on Percy's tab Wish you could join us.

Just thought I'd post a link to Bosque del Cabo just in case http://www.bosquedelcabo.com/ Since the GTG will take place during the (US) July 4th holiday, we plan on gathering a couple of those lightening beetles and releasing them in celebration.

Percy!!!! One of these days you're gonna have to get your butt to CR and meet up with us. ;-)

Deb - No guarantees but again a puma with cub seen in the tropical garden last time I checked in. They are being seen more and more which is awesome!

plumboy - You never know! Got a good thing started here so it might just end up being a biannual tradition.

Bringing this thread to the top in case any newbies on the forum are planning for July. It's been great meeting some of the "names" here on the forum over the past few years.

shillmac did you alert the editors of the GTG dates? Hopefully they will send us some goodies again this time (the lighter the better!)

Will do. And thanks for posting the link! Duh!

Biannual would be awsesome!! I think that is a great idea. No complaints from me!

Thank you, Percy. . .we WILL see you in 2013, one way or the other. You can buy the drinks then, too.

Love the lightening beetles idea--Stars and Stripes Forever, Bosque del Cabo style! Seriously, it would be fun to have a special celebration of some type. . .let's see what we can cook up!!

I wish I could go! Every dysfunctional group needs 1 petrified poet, surely? Seriously, you folks all have a wonderful time.

I'm trying to put together a trip for extended family for this June...including my first grandbaby who is almost 2 years old. We are hoping to go to Yosemite this June. But someday when she's older I'm hoping we can take her along with family to Bosque del Cabo to see monkeys.

I'm already looking forward to reading the trip reports when you all return!

Just thought I would top this for anyone considering a trip in July.

And to mention the beautiful shot of a puma right on the stairs at the Manglillo cabina today, posted on Bosque's Facebook page. Definitely up close and personal.

OK tully...u got me all excited. But I can't find the puma pic. I joined the FB group, but can't seem to get to the correct spot.

So are there still cabinas available or have the confirmed GTG participants taken up the whole place already? LOL
