Tiskita Jungle Lodge is a superbly beautiful and warmly hospitable place for hiking, swimming, and training your binoculars up into the trees. So much to see and take in - scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and tiny glass frogs (don't miss the night hike). A blessed place - not luxe and glitzy like so many resort hotels - just homey and...

One of the real enjoyments at Tiskita Jungle Lodge is meeting the Aspinal family and their many guests, from all corners of the world. People interested in ecology, wildlife and its preservation, sustainable agriculture, as well as adventures in the forest and on the shore, come back again and again. The Lodge provides local employment, participates in preservation activities, and... More

I recently returned from a 7-night stay at Tiskita. I took my sister, and my niece and my son joined us for 4 nights. A co-worker of mine had been to Tiskita in the past and really enjoyed it, which was one reason I chose it. In addition, I wanted a place where my sister could do as much or... More

I booked this tour blind from San Francisco. It is rustic but one of the best stays I ever had. It is located near the Panamanian border. On the side of a hill over looking the Pacific Ocean. We landed there in a small aircraft on a dirt road where an ox cart met us to pull our bags up... More

A three-generation group of us stayed at Tiskita just after Christmas. We had a terrific time, and loved the wildness of the place. The lodge holds about 40 guests, and all the meals are served family style in the main lodge. The guest rooms are rustic cabins with the bathrooms open to the outside(but still private). There is no A/C,... More

A friend and I stayed at Tiskita Jungle Lodge in April 2014, and without question this topped the list of all-time greatest trips. I will be going back! We stayed for 5 days before continuing to travel to some other areas around San Jose. At first we were a little nervous about getting there, having never been to Costa Rica... More

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
