One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. La Cusinga is a little hidden paradise set in the middle of the rainforest. The grounds and rooms are beautifully built and immaculately clean - the food is fresh and delicious - and the staff are friendly and welcoming. There is something for everyone -- plenty of toucans and birds... More

We stayed as a group at la Cusinga and had an amazing time there. The lodge is nestled in the rainforest and near the beach. The cabins are quaint, comfy and functional. I stayed in the large room with bunk beds, and slept like a baby most nights. The windows have screens on them so you can enjoy the breeze... More

A nice lodge with a astonishing view and access to the marina balena NP. The cabins are fine, clean but all a bit on the pricy side but the view is worth a lot. You can access the NP Marina balena (=beach) via a small jungle path directly from the lodge. The food is good but rather expensive.

The general manager Geiner and his team are brilliant. It is helpful to know some spanish but not essential (in general knowing Spanish in Costa Rica would be extremely useful). You can't beat La Cusinga's loction, the food (5 star), the hikes / beach and the smiling service. A few areas for improvement to make the experience even better: -... More

If you are looking for quiet accommodation in wonderful surroundings we cannot recommend highly enough! This hotel was without doubt our favourite in Costa Rica. The views are stunning with plenty of wildlife to watch. So many hummingbirds to admire. Not to mention the troupe of howler monkeys who came through the grounds. We saw a group of white faced...

I stayed there in November as part of a photographic group. The location is high on the cliff above the Pacific Ocean giving spectacular views. The accommodation is in semi detached chalets which are scattered around. They have two large beds, which are comfortable, with windows on three sides. The windows have curtains and shutters, but are good to allow... More

My wife and I just returned from a week long yoga retreat at La Cusinga. The lodge puts emphasis on eco-friendly and it is. Our room was very nice, large and had a good view. Amenities are sparse and there is no air conditioning. For the most part that is OK except that in a jungle environment clothes tend to... More

We felt at home because the staff cared so much. We enjoyed the healthy and delicious food as much as the beautiful view during eating.
