I can not say enough good things about this place. Everything was simply perfect. The food, the location, the rooms and the yoga studio overlooking the ocean!? Lush and full of life and tranquility. The best part of it is they are environmentally conscious and friendly.

My wife and I entered the La Cusinga office and asked to check in. Without welcoming us the person behind the desk let us know he didn't do that but he would call someone to help us. That person arrived relatively promptly and showed us round the major buildings and our cabina. The web reservation page states that La Cusinga... More

A little slice of heaven in the rainforest, there is a swimming hole and a beach within short reach, and hiking paths throughout. You can tell the keepers of this place care for it, hand built with local materials and creative touches, it is clean and the architecture is beautiful. Did I mention the food? Delicious!

My husband and I stayed here two nights on our honeymoon. I loved it!!! The cabin was clean, the view of the sunset was spectacular and the beach was one of the highlights of our trip. My husband found it a little boring without internet in the room, and no tv, but that didn't bother me as much. The best... More

I can't say enough positive things about La Cusinga. I attended a workshop at La Cusinga and the staff accommodated our group of 25 wonderfully. They were kind and attentive. The food was incredible, so fresh and beautifully prepared. Much of the produce comes from right on the grounds. The views and natural beauty of the surroundings is unparalleled. The... More

La Cusinga is one of the best places on the planet to enjoy nature and do so in comfort. They've done a remarkable job of protecting the forest on their property, allowing monkeys, birds, reptiles, and a myriad of other creatures to flourish. This combined with such a well-designed place (buildings made from local wood and stone), delicious local food,... More

Food was wonderful, staff was kind and helpful, accommodations were clean and nice. Especially loved the fresh air and lovely nature sounds. At night the rain fell and made for a perfect sleep. In the morning the birds and sometimes howler monkeys could be heard. Beach was a short walk away and very secluded.

The La Cusinga grounds include a path to, as far as I could tell, a private beach in the Ballena Marine reserve. Beautiful. The overall grounds fit well into the landscape and the view from the breakfast area can't be beat. Also had a great time with the staff. Chef Eddie went out of his way to make a passion... More
