I just sent you an invite to my Kodak gallery with BdC pics. If you look around the forum, dfarmer has posted a link somewhere to her pics at Iguana Lodge.

I am assuming it is your photos I got from a hotmail account. Screen names are different from real names of course. I think I just said that I enjoyed them and Thanks. You saw loads of monkeys! R

omg you saw the pigs, lol! I am scared to death of those guys, even though I've yet to come across one! Were they agressive at all? I guess listening to too many bar tales set my imagination to work. Great pics!

I'm glad you enjoyed them. I had forgotten I put some of my pictures on Yahoo.

The peccaries weren't aggressive, but they started clicking their teeth which means they were getting agitated. I had heard horror stories of peccaries chasing people up trees. I just stood there until they passed. They also reek like a sweaty gym.

Brian - loved your pics.

Southpaw - we stayed at both BdC and Iguana in Feb 05 - very much enjoyed our experience. Our pictures probably want offer as much as Brian's but here they are. Hope you enjoy.

Great pictures!! Thanks to both of you for posting the links. We are off to BdC at end of January. The wild animals looks a little scary...

dfarmer- thanks also to you for your pictures. I loved looking at them all. I was wondering if you thought of anything you wished you had taken along. Did you wish for any snacks, drink, etc? For example, we usually take microwave popcorn when we stay in a house for late eve. card games. We will be in the house at BdC. Just "fishing" for ideas.

Nice pictures everyone. Thanks for sharing. I too am interested in hearing anyones tips for what to take to Bosque (snacks, gear, etc). We will be there the first week of February.

I am a bit of a photography buff, so I have to decide what lenses to take. I have a 70mm to 300mm lens and a 200mm to 500mm lens. Since the 300mm lens is much lighter I was hoping to just use that one. Do you get close enough to the wildlife to get solid close up pics with a 300mm lens? Just curious.

Since I will probably take 100+ pictures a day, I will be sure to share the good ones when we get back.

Last year I was at Bosque and I had a 55-200mm lens for my Nikon. While the pics are good, it didn't quite do it. This year I am returning with a 70-300mm lens and i think that will do the trick. Anything bulkier or heavier than that is too much trouble.

RR, thanks for the reply. I also have a 200mm to 500mm but I think that it will be too heavy and is hard to get clear pictures handheld anyway. So, it looks like the 300mm is the way to go.

dfarmer: What fabulous pictures!!!The fishing ones in particular will capture my 4 teens' plus Daddy's attention.

PLEASE tell me, do you need to book this in advance?Which company?
WHERE did you board the boat??(How far from Bosque?) Schedule of events? The shear size of those fish are astonishing!!! Suggestions/other comments? We too are staying at Bosque in the Miramar...but booked it WAY in advance(for Christmas,2007)
Thanks to all for your exciting pictures!!!

Thank you, I am not at all a photographer, just point and click kind of person!!

We did not book in advance, we booked this trip once we arrived at BdC with the help of the office staff.

We used Mike Hennessey of Cabo Matapalo Fishing. http://www.cabo-matapalo.com/
It was an awesome day. I am not a fisherperson! Actually I had taken a book along because I thought it would be a long boring day. That was my first ever fish to catch and WHAT a fish it was. Fed the whole lodge!! I was on such an adrenaline rush, almost never calmed down! Still excites me today!

Have a wonderful time - I know I did!

Hello. Planning to spend 4 night/5 days at the Osa peninsula in July, family of 4 with 2 kids 7 and 9 years old. If you could only chose one place - BdC or Iguana Lodge, which one would u pick? Before this we would have spent 4 days in Manuel Antonio so while beach access is still a nice to have , its not the top priority for our Osa trip. Thanks!
