The staff, surroundings and open-air lounge all combined to create a magical stay for us at La Cusinga. Sat in rocking chairs in the evening watching a tremendous electrical storm at sea was a memorable experience, helped along by a cold bottle of Imperial lager. The restaurant was excellent too, not just for breakfast. Our rooms were spotless, and the... More

I stayed at La Cusinga Ecolodge after attending a 10-day silent meditation retreat in the mountains above Dominical and Uvita - it was a wonderful place to transition back into life, before driving across the country to my home in the northern mountains. My cabin was simple but perfectly comfortable, and the surroundings completely delightful. The restaurant serves delicious food,... More

For those of us who come to CR to be closer to nature (Pura Vida!) La Cusinga is THE place to hang out. It's located perfectly for walks everywhere, to the beach, to the rainforest, even to nearby town, if one wishes.

My husband and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary at this beautiful nature ecolodge. The river rock decor including walls, shower and sink is amazing. We enjoyed the friendly staff, healthy delicious meals and slept great listening to the ocean. Waking up to the Howler monkeys was bliss. The well kept trails, incredible yoga studio and the natural pool kept... More

If you're looking for an Air-Conditioned room with flat screen TV, mini-bar and a large pool w/ swim-up bar La Cusinga is not for you. However if you're happy with a comfortable room, outstanding views, great service, excellent food, small crowds, lots of wildlife and hiking trails on the property then you'll love La Cusinga.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at La Cusinga. I can't speak highly enough about this unique experience. The thing that struck both of us was how quiet and tranquil this experience was. You'll hear nothing but wildlife and waves crashing to the shore. I'm not sure I can find a single negative about our time with La Cusinga.

La Cusinga is tranquil & beautiful. As other reviewers have commented: Paradise. With memories of falling asleep & awakening to the sounds of crickets and howler monkeys & settling into harmony with this beautiful environment in sight of the Pacific Ocean, we would return to La Cusinga in a heartbeat.
