I stayed in Tiskita for 4 nights in April 2015. Within 24 I had seen squirrel monkeys, a howler monkey, macaws, hummingbirds, toucans, frogs and geckos. Horseback riding through the rainforest I saw so many beautiful plants, as well as my first sloth. I was astounded at the variety of wildlife around the lodge. It was also incredibly relaxing.

Our first stop in Costa Rica was Tiskita... It was all what we expected and a bit more. Its a very familiar and friendly place, where you can see a lot of animals and feel all alone in the nature. Our bungalow had ocean view, the veranda with hammock is great to relax with all the jungle sounds and the... More

Tiskita Jungle Lodge was the epitome of great jungle lodging. The adventure began when we landed in our 4-seater plane on a "driveway" grass landing strip.The owners and staff were very on top of things. The buffet meals were delicious. For the nature lover, you are completely immersed and surrounder by wildlife while still being near the beach. We had... More

Peter and Lizbeth and their family have created a remarkable biological reserve! We were impressed with how they have worked to reforest lands, plant orchards, build the lodge and cabins, and create an extensive trail-system across the reserve. Their conservation ethic is commendable and appreciated. We were awed by the beauty of Tiskita and amazed by the fantastic birds and... More

We highly recommend Tiskita Lodge. If you just love being immersed in unspoilt, beautiful nature, far form the madding crowd, it is the perfect balance of forest, sea, animals and birds. Each cabin is set in the jungle overlooking the sea, and one is surrounded by the sound of crashing waves on one side, and chattering monkeys and birds on... More

Think of the best time you ever had at a family cottage - that's Tiskita. A warm, friendly welcome and exceptional care for their guests throughout the entire stay (including arranging for the delivery of a much-needed prescription from a pharmacy several hours away). Dining is family style, with Peter, Lisbeth, Clyde and visiting family members joining in. Three delicious... More

Like some of your other reviewers, I embarked on this leg of our Costa Rica "adventure" with some trepidation, as we had been advised in advance that the accommodation was "somewhat basic", and I was not sure whether it would suit all the members of our 2-couple party, who are more familiar with somewhat up-market holiday hotels. However, I need... More

First off, let me say, that when my wife told me she wanted to go to Costa Rica and spend a week at a resort in a rain forest near Panama (Tiskita Lodge), I was none too pleased. The prospect of spending 6 days in a hot humid climate without the benefit of air conditioning, satellite tv, and constant access... More

I have been to 15 different lodges in Costa Rica in the past 3 years and prefer places that are remote and not too crowded and a wide variety of birds and animals to see and photograph. I was at the Tiskita Jungle Lodge for 7 days this January 2015 for the first time and it way exceeded my expectations.... More
