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

We highly recommend La Cusinga Eco Lodge. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The grounds and architecture are beautiful. The view of the ocean from both our room and the common area deck was fantastic. The meals were delicious, and we appreciated having coffee, juice, and water available throughout the day. We enjoyed our hike to the beach, which... More

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!

La Cusinga is one of those places where magic happens, where you feel at home and where you get the chance to truly feel connected with the beauty of nature around. Add to it a nice and caring management and you obtain the perfect place to travel to!
