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.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April (2015).....we had an amazing experience. It is definitely the Costa Rican jungle! If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing get away - this is it!

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.

The Cusinga lodge is positioned with the best view of the Pacific and long, exotic and quiet trails to walk in the national reserve, The beaches which can be reached are just beautiful and to put it mildly not overrun. Breakfast and dinner are both very good. Good place to make walks through rainforest.

La Cusinga is fantastic! The location, the sustainability, the food, and the staff! It is the BEST eco-lodge in the world! The yoga pavilion is amazing! I can't think of a better place to visit in Costa Rica!

If you don't mind paying $200 for a camping cabin this is the place for you. The room is stripped down - no air conditioning (it is beastly hot there), no TV, no phone and the beach is a 30 minute walk down the side of the cliff! Dinner is whatever they feel like serving you - don't like it?... More

We had a great stay at La Cusinga. The views from the porch are magnificent and the grounds of the property are full of delightful surprises--like a natural pool right in the middle of jungle terrain. The staff were all very warm and welcoming, and I would say that the only downside is that it's a very small operation, so... More
