We had chosen this hotel because of the trip advisors reviews. We were charmed by the image they presented on their website as an ecolodge, blue flag, "yoga retreat" and many other prices and certifications they have received. Staff: very friendly. But they need to improve when they guide people at hotel. There is a need of more explanation of... More

Our kids are 6 and 9 and Arco beach was the best beach we visited in Costa Rica. Almost private with a cool, vine-covered trail leading to a protected cove. Huge flat beach so room to play frisbee or soccer and run around. Fun cave to play in. But the best part was the perfect sized waves with a sandy... More

The hotel grounds are wonderful and its in a good location. The staff is terrific - really nice and even put up with my terrible spanish - letting me practice rather than speaking to me in English, which is the norm in Costa Rica. Because of this, I really didn't want to write this review -but I feel others ought... More

Excellent hotel, very peaceful, full of nature and superb views of the ocean and the Marino Ballena National Park. Keep in mind that you are booking a hotel with no A/C, no pool, no minibar at the rooms and a very environmentally-flriendly concept; if that's what you are looking for, the hotel is great and the food, all of it...

I stayed here on the way down to Pavones. I did their combo package for two days which included meals and a boat trip outing. The grounds were peaceful and serene and the staff was really friendly. There is wireless available in the common area and my room was really clean. Their yoga studio is brand new and absolutely beautiful,... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at la Cusinga, in the 'Manu' bungalow. La Cusinga is a beautiful resort. the view from our cabin was of the Pacific Ocean and the Marina Ballena national park. The grounds are gorgeous. The beach is a 10 minute walk through the rainforest, but it is well worth the trip: an almost... More

We both thought the way La Cusinga is set up was absolutely perfect. Each room has its own wonderful view, and the furniture on the porch was perfect for just sitting and enjoying everything. The smell of jasmine kept floating up on the breeze. Everyone staying there used and enjoyed the common area, and we all loved the way the... More

Our family stayed here for 3 nights (it was supposed to be 4, but our flight got moved up by 6 hours :(. We loved the view of the ocean from our place and the wildlife we saw on the trails, our cabin, the common area and the poza (natural pool). We saw howler monkeys twice, once from our cabin,... More

A namaste-istas paradise. We were traveling on our own and stayed in a cabina. In march the weather was stifling hot (no AC) but the cabina had 700+ sq ft of screened ventilation including a peak vent that let hot air out. I got by at night by taking a cold shower then pointing a box fan at my body... More

“If you can't unwind here, your spring is broken.” Funny you started with that quote, because people that know me always ask me... where in the world do you go on vacation, if you have La Cusinga. And it is true, to me a walk to the beach or a swim in the Poza, or to sit in the main... More

We loved our stay at the Cusinga : everything is done with taste and you can feel their comittment in sustainability. The rooms in private bungalows are perfect and super clean. The view above the bay is amazing. The food is the best ever thanks to the sélection of fresh ingredients from their farm and a fantastic cook. Not to... More

Hidden in the hilltops overlooking the pristine beaches of Costa Rica's still-virgin south pacific, where the ocean crashes into the jungle sits La Cusinga.

The open-air restaurant creates an ideal setting for couples and families alike to enjoy delicious tropical dishes made with fresh produce grown on our farm. In addition to the hundreds of acres of privately-owned primary and secondary forest, the lodge borders the Ballena Marine National Park, one of only two nationally-protected marine zones in the whole country.
