We stayed here in January 2012 and it is really special. It is right by Playa Chiquita back from the road. We walked in and the main lounge area and restaurant are all open to the jungle. You can sit there for hours and watch the wildlife which is literally all around you.
Amazing showers - the best in Costa Rica
Lovely rooms which were really clean with your own balcony and hammock
Pepo and Sonia looked after us amazingly well and every day showed us where all the wildlife was around the grounds
AMAZING mojitos - seriously they are the best I have ever tasted
Lovely breakfasts in a gorgeous setting
Cons - The only thing I would say is it is useful to have a car. A lot of people rent bikes which is a good alternative but if you want to explore all the beaches and get out and about a car is really useful. Other than that, there are none. Stay here is is a really special place and really reasonably priced.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
