Guide to Costa Rica: Bosque de Paz

Set on the slopes of the continental divide north of San José, the Bajos del Toro region is home to another quiet pocket of cloudforest.

The private reserve of Bosque de Paz covers 3000 acres of forested hillside, ranging from 1,450-2,450 metres. Visitor numbers here are strictly managed, so the self-guided trails are peaceful and uncrowded.

The twelve-room, family-run lodge which owns and manages the reserve provides an excellent base from which to explore. Overlooking the surrounding woodland, the lodge’s gardens have been strung with nectar feeders to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

A small stream tumbles through the garden, and strategically placed easy chairs provide the perfect tonic to a morning spent walking in the cloudforest.
