We spent a week at Tiskita and it was heavenly. The animal life is simply stunning, the people we met were delightful, and the peace and quiet were unparalleled. I'm not a yoga person, but I did yoga at Tiskita every day - the teacher and the space were both perfect. Bring a stack of books and your camera, along... More

I just came back from a 5 days vacation from Tiskita Lodge. The owners are great people and their place is amazing. I'm from Costa Rica and it was my first time in Pavones and Punta Banco, The beaches are beautiful. We saw a lot of animals at the Lodge and really enjoyed our stay there.

I first went to Tiskita in 1992 and loved it then as I loved it on this return visit. Peter has let the jungle grow back in from the cattle field it once was so the wildlife is incredibly close at hand. You can literally sit by the pool or under the trees across from the eating area and you... More

We have been spending part of every January for 10 years in Tiskita. From our first visit we have been enchanted with the setting and the Aspinal family who welcomed us. We love flying in over the ocean, we love the private cabins spread out in the forest surrounding the main lodge, we love the beautifully prepared meals, we love... More

We spend the first three nights of our trip to Costa Rica at Tiskita and though we took the small plane from San Jose over, which if you are not a fan of small planes can be a challenge, it was he quickest way to get there. The lodge is beautiful and the jungle surroundings provide for opportunities to see... More

I am planning to go back next year and spend my entire vacation just at Tiskita. There is so much to do.. it is truly an awesome place to relax... More

My family visited Tiskita in December, the 3rd visit for three of our group. Tiskita is truly a paradise. We never left the preserve, with jungle hikes, a guided night hike, ocean swimming, relaxing by the pool and cooling off in the waterfall . Accommodations (3 unit cabin) were perfect , offering privacy and ocean view. The food was amazing... More

My husband and I just returned home after a 16-day stay at Tiskita Jungle Lodge. It is one of our best and most touching experiences ever. There is so much positive to say about the family that owns and runs the lodge, the cabins and the lodge itself, and the surrounding rainforest and the many, many species of plants and... More

My husband and I spent our delayed honeymoon at Tiskita and enjoyed every minute of it. Clyde and his family were perfect hosts and the property itself was breath taking. My husband surfed every monring and we spent every afternoon relaxing by the pool. If you want to see the wildlife without hiking, the pool is hands down the place... More

A friend and I spend eight nights at Tiskita. The Lodge is part of a large property and all buildings are perfectly embedded into nature. So there is really privacy if you wan't to spend some time on your own. In the morning you wake up with the sound of the birds and you can always hear the ocean. It... More
