The entire staff was very friendly. The kitchen staff was very helpful with my food allergies. At every meal, they explained what the ingredients were if I needed to ask. The chef, Eddie, was outstanding. Christian, the general manager, made our whole group very comfortable at every meal. The yoga pavilion was beautiful both morning and in the evenings for... More

I have been to La Cusinga several times with my husband. It is our special place. I took three girlfriends on this trip. They absolutely loved it! It is magnificent in every way: the view, the wildlife, the sounds, the sunsets, the staff, the natural pool, the private beach, the food, the rooms, the serenity. La Cusinga has it all.

La Cusinga Eco Lodge... Just, Wow! First of all, we were blown away by everything at this place. Instead of getting married the traditional way, we decided to elope to a tropical destination. Our trip took us to eight lodging properties in Mexico & Costa Rica. We didn't really know until arriving what each would be like. This one was... More

The hotel is located in a nice isolated area where you are surrounded by beautiful natural trails and beach views. The staff were amazingly kind and the food was wonderfully fresh and organic. This place is really worth the visit!

This well run eco-lodge has very good trails, and is located quite near the Marino Ballena national park where whales can be seen in certain months. Lunch was... More

Went for a couple drinks to burn some time in the afternoon. Just stumbled across this place. Had friendly staff, and a great view. As we parked and got out of the car, we were greeted by several howler monkeys right above us. Would like to go back and try the food
