La Kukula Lodge is situated in Playa Chiquita/ Puerto Viejo, next to Refugio de Vida Silvestre de Gandoca-Manzanillo and Cahuita N.P.Built in 2008, La Kukula Lodge follows the principles of sustainable architecture and only plantation wood (teak) has been used in its construction. With its tropical-contemporary style, the bungalows blend naturally with the wooded surroundings: an ideal location to enjoy the flora and fauna the region has to offer. A simple path system running through the garden links each bungalow, the “rancho-bar” and the swimming pool. There are only 8 rooms available, all are very spacious and airy, with their own deck, fans, bathrooms and hot water from a hybrid solar/electric system. All rooms have fantastic views from private terraces onto the sylvan garden.

Stayed here for 4 night in 3 rooms in mid July. It was lovely that we were given adjoining rooms which meant we had a whole building/large balcony to ourselves. We loved the hammocks. The setting is just beautiful. Saw our first sloth here. Loved the breakfast. Didn't try

Wow! Costa Rica was out of this world. The lodge we stayed at embodied the Costa Rican spirit of being Eco friendly as well as Pura Vida Spirit. The owners live there and were very friendly. Will return!

Hello CarolyneP: It has been very sunny and dry lately, a little weird for the season. Difficult to forecast for next week; Costa Rica is a little country between 2 oceans and weather is quite difficult to forecast. It is sure that temperature will be between 20ºC to 30º and humidity above 80%. :) Have a good tripe and see you soon!
