This wonderful property is by far the BEST place to stay in the South Caribbean region of Costa Rica. La Kukula is nestled in the lush forest just steps away from several beaches. Wake up to howler monkeys, enjoy the tranquility of forest by day and fall asleep to jungle sounds at night. Don't miss out on the opportunity to... More

I feel incredibly privileged to have stayed at La Kukula Lodge. It has been hands down the eco-lodge that is the most alive with diverse wildlife all around, that my partner and I have visited during our travels in Costa Rica. We saw sloths climbing tree trunks, howler monkeys swinging through the branches, agoutis running under the cabins, toucans flying... More

Everything was perfect just one small thing. Windows at the shower and the room some of then you can't close so it's not comfortable because there is a feeling that some one can see you, but beside that people are amazing. We loved their breakfast especially their fresh juce.

Pepo and Sonja of La Kukula recently provided six nights of eco-lodging for my group of jungle retreat participants. My guests found the owners to be wonderful hosts, and the property was lovely. The rooms were simple and perfect for their needs. They especially loved the showers - which were sizable and indoors, but felt open to the jungle. Plus,... More

Possibly the most beautiful place I have ever visited, twice. If you've got a love for wildlife and adventure, Costa Rica is a wonderful destination. La Kukula Lodge, situated in the South Caribbean region, is run by a lovely couple who are passionate about what they do. You are staying within nature - essentially guests of the jungle. Enormous trees... More

I absolutely loved this place. Sonya & Pepe, the owners, were so kind as well as all the staff. The breakfast was fresh and the coffee was so addictive I brought three bags home! The rooms are in what I can best describe as luxury tree houses in the jungle. The decks have tables and hammocks to enjoy the great... More

This lounge is located in the middle of the jungle, which allows you to interact with all the fauna and flora of the area, while you are accommodated in high quality premises with an outstanding comfort. All the facilities are brand new and you feel like you are staying in a 5 Stars Hotel surrounded by nature all the time.... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. It is beautiful and surrounded by nature and only a few minutes walk from an extremely paradisiac and quiet beach. When we were there we saw howler monkeys, sloths and tucans and whilst having breakfast -bread and jam as well as juices are homemade mmmmmm- we did spotted blue morpho butterflies and hummingbirds....

Pepe and Sonia are incredible hosts, their baby is adorable, they put tender loving care into every single detail, and their place is an absolute gem. Sonia even did our laundry for us the last day for only $15 because our clothes wouldn't dry due to the humidity. No, there's not a fitness center, no, the pool isn't fancy, and... More

The beach you can walk to from this hotel was pure bliss. I'm not sure of how long of a walk it was but I would guess between 1-1.5 miles? You'd walk just down the driveway, across the only road down the coast, then follow a beach walk down to a pretty much secluded beach. Water was clear and warm,... More
