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

Traveled in late Feb. and early March to Tiskita. Had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the great birding and wildlife. Peter and Elizabeth really have put together a wonderful lodge. Highly recommend it for relaxation and the birding. The Yoga teacher Beth was excellent and gave a wonderful massage.

Ever since I visited Tiskita in 1999 I vowed to return and finally in January, 2015. This remote, cozy rustic lodge is nestled on a forested hillside overlooking the tropical Pacific. This is a perfect place to go if you want to see birds, monkeys, and other animals like sloths, coatis and agoutis. The cabins are spread comfortably around the... More

We visited this lodge on the advice of a Costa Rica specialty travel agent. It was so cool, albeit rustic. The showers were open air and the rooms were on stilts with outdoor access. Another couple had a tarantula in their room. We saw snakes, spiders, monkeys, butterflies everywhere. The food was basic but very enjoyable. Smoothies and cocktails from... More

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
