Bosque de Paz is a small lodge in Bajos del Toro in Costa Rica's central valley, between San Jose and Arenal. It has just twelve guest rooms, giving it an intimate feel. The abundant birdlife, attracted by the many feeders, makes this a great favourite with ornithologists, and photographers will enjoy capturing images of the wildlife and scenery. The owners, Frederico and Vanessa Gonzales, are dedicated to conservation and research. They developed the lodge and private reserve to protect the wildlife and ecosystems of the Central Volcanic Range of Costa Rica, and save this precious environment for future generations. Staying here you'll experience their passion for nature as well as their warm hospitality, making you feel more of a family friend than a guest.

All rooms have private bathrooms with hot water on tap and balconies where you can sit and watch butterflies and hummingbirds. Bedrooms are roomy with high wooden ceilings, whitewashed walls and tiled floors.

The large restaurant has picture windows with views of the butterfly garden and forest. The chef specialises in local recipes so you'll have the chance to sample typical Costa Rican fare. Coffee is available throughout the day free of charge. There's a lounge with comfy sofas where you'll find a number of board games as well as a TV. There's also a small library.

Outside, you can follow the many walking trails and hike to a nearby waterfall, and pay a visit to the renowned orchid garden with over 200 species on show. There are several outdoor seating areas where you can sit and take in the beautiful surroundings.
