It is very delightful to spend a few days with Peter & Marja in Cacatua Lodge and enjoy their hospitality. Perfect view from a lovely garden with lots of birds. Nice and proper cottages with a private terrace, fridge and kettle. Also a good base to explore the Uvita area. Beach, town, supermarket and restaurants to be reached within 10... More

We had an amazing stay in this beautiful Lodge in the middle of a peaceful and very relaxing natural place. The owners of the place are lovely, they received us very well and everything went perfectly. Highly recommended!

Peter and Maria are tremendously helpful, social, careful and good hosts. They seem to do almost anything themselves, making the whole stay feeling very personal, as if you are staying with friends. The lodges are perfect, luxury in the middle of the jungle. Good breakfast, good coffee, good dinner option. Definitely recommendable to couples, families and small groups.

We made the reservation to stay at La Cacatua months in advance, but it seems we got put in the worst possible room. The first 3 nights we succeeded in switching to a larger one with a full kitchenette, although not very functional because the lights are extremely dim and you can't see what you're doing. That stay was ok.... More

La Cacatua has lovely grounds, and our cabina had a kitchenette which was v handy. However there's a basic design problem: both our cabina and our friend's were mildewy. I think this is because the main window is actually the patio door, which is unscreened, so the place never airs out (and has no AC). Good location 10 mins from... More

Easy to reach from Uvita (approx. 10 driving minutes to town). Very nice property with a couple of double-bungalows in the garden, that offer all the basics you need. It's great to sit on the terrace and just watch the birds in the jungle and listen to the sounds of nature. Peter and Marja give you all the advise and... More

We live in Heredia and went for the “festival de Ballenas” to Uvita. We choose for this Lodge because of all the good reviews. The lodge is located in the jungle but fortunately not too far away from the beaches. It is really a special place. Our room was located in a beautiful garden with an amazing mountain view. We...

“All studio rooms are spread out over a few acres, so there is great privacy no matter where you stay. We stayed in the lowest studio unit on the property( which is built on a hill), and it was a bit of a trek back up and down each time. So, keep this in mind when asking for the lower studio.”
