We had our private viewing platform off our bed room deck: Howler Monkeys, White face Monkeys, a Tayra, many many types of birds. A large family of White Face Monkeys moved through the ravine off our deck about 30 feet away. I would get up early and sneak out of the room for the morning show.
The staff was wonderful. They couldn't have done more.
La Cusinga was the only place we stayed in CR where we were served a variety of Tico dishes. There were so many new flavors and combinations that each meal was an adventure. The food is not mass produced like in some of the bigger resorts.
The next time I go I would rent a car so I could drive to the local attractions.
This was a lucky find for us.
