We went to Tiskita because a friend recommended it and we weren't disappointed. It was, in fact, one of the best places we stayed at in Costa Rica and we hope to return. The lodge is set within a jungle that the owners have worked hard to preserve and wildlife abounds. The cabins are located in the grounds of the lodge and we had a detached one with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. If you want a five star luxury hotel then this isn't for you but the location is amazing and the family who own it offer the warmest of welcomes.

This resort features 2 star accommodation and service at a 5 star price. If you are willing to pay through the nose to tell your friends how you spent time ‘roughing it’ in a Costa Rican jungle, you will love it here. There was no one there to meet us when we arrived. Eventually, an off duty tour guide was rousted out of the kitchen to handle our check in. We were led down the road to our room which was reminiscent of summer camps I attended as a child in North Ontario... rustic, exposed beams and dark. The room was tiny! The deck, a shared space, the bed uninviting with only two little pillows. The outdoor bathroom was great though :). There was no internet and no AC (not a problem personally, but for $300 a night it might be expected by some). We were told to wear closed toe shoes because of snakes and to bring a flashlight on our hike up to dinner. We didn’t have either— which is, I am guessing here, just part of the experience we were paying for. Dinner was at a preset time and a preset meal (no menu choices here) and ‘family style’ (we were told where and with whom we would eat). The food was forgettable. During the night I was awakened by scratching noises and stuff landing on my face. Turning on the lights revealed a large mouse (rat?) on the ceiling frantically trying to gnaw his way out. While I can’t blame the resort for this, it is notable that there was no one and no way to call for help and we were only able to deal with it because we had walking sticks with us and were able to drag in an outdoor bench to stand on. On the plus side, one employee, Marco, was great. He arranged for extra pillows and flashlights to be delivered to our room. The beach is wonderful (just not really close), the hiking trails are good (just not well marked) and the waterfalls and natural pools above it are beautiful. We saw lots of scarlet macaws. In summary we got way less then we paid for. But, something tells me, that that is exactly what we were paying for.

Leaving Tiskita Lodge was so sad! My wife and I just loved everything about this place from the jungle, the beach, the well marked trails, the yoga platform looking out at the ocean, our private cabin, the meals, the lodge and especially the people. Lisbeth and her family and staff have created a very welcoming environment, and it was not surprising that many of the guests were returning after previous visits. My personal highlight, thanks to Mario (the excellent guide) was watching a red capped Manakin moon walk on a branch during one of my trail walks. We also loved our gecko buddy hanging out on the outdoor shower, super cute agouti babies, three species of monkeys, plus, plus, plus.

This place is absolutely beautiful! It is definitely in the middle of the jungle. The work that has been done to preserve the area and natural habitat is admirable. Being able to stay there was like being allowed to observe and experience all that was around. Our cabin was clean and impressive. The half wall of the bathroom turned out to be a delightful experience. Why have wallpaper when the real greenery is available? The stay included 3 meals a day -- delicious! The people in the kitchen made some incredible meals, and went out of their way to meet special dietary needs/issues. Dinner was a 3 course meal that started with soup that was very good, and ended with dessert. You could choose to eat with all the other guests at a big table, or at a private table. Also included in the cost was a guided walking tour. Mario was our guide, and he knew virtually everything. Plus he was super nice. We were able to glimpse a jacamar bird -- very neat -- as well as see oodles of squirrel monkeys. We tried boogie boarding at the beach. We had a fabulous stay. Suggestion: When dressing or putting on shoes be sure to shake out clothing or shoes away from you.

Tiskita Jungle Lodge is truly in the middle of the rain forest so you can hear and see squirrel monkeys and multiple birds from your room. This is an ecolodge with ceiling fan and no A/C, screened in windows without glass and a bathroom that is open to the forest. The bathroom does feature a hot water shower and a flush toilet. There is no food allowed in the rooms as it would attract wildlife to enter the room. There are forest views on two sides and the ocean view from the front porch. The focus is the wildlife and our guide showed us three types of monkeys, agoutis, coatis, kinkajous, three-toed sloths, scarlet macaws, toucans, aracari, manakins, honeycreepers, vireos, spadebills, kingbirds and tanagers. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style and dinner is served.
