We found La Cusinga just before needing to drive back to San Jose, so only stayed 1 night. If we had known how cool it was, definitely would have stayed longer. Eco rustic yet almost luxury bungalows with decks, plus there is a big observation deck next to the restaurant. Lots of trails, even to a beach and to a...

My husband and I stayed here for six nights in early March and loved everything about it. Our cabin/room had a nice balcony and beautiful view, the fan and windows cooled things off at night. The room was private, but not far from the main restaurant area. The food was great, and the people working in the restaurant were so...

Came to CR to have top notch dental work in San Jose. Between appointments, we were able to go down the Pacific coast to stay in this wonderful ecolodges, swim in the natural pond, eat the fabulous food, and take in the incredible flora/fauna of the rainforest. Staff there outstanding and helpful.

We spent 3 nights at La Cusinga and it was paradise. This is a small eco lodge with a few bungalows and the most fantastic views through and over the forest to the ocean. There are several forest trails to explore, all were amazing - a short walk to the natural swimming area, a trail through the forest and another...

Small, friendly eco-hotel. The rooms are wood paneled, with nice showers and hot water (not the norm in CR!). Comfortable beds. Each cabin has its own patio and ours had a swing set for the kids. There is a nice restaurant with good prices and food. The lounge area is the best. Comfy couches, wifi, and amazing views of Uvita...

I went to a yoga retreat here and it was like having your own personal rainforest and beach in your backyard. The food is beyond delicious. The grounds are a little spread out and the one thing I wish they had were bed nets since it is the rainforest and a few bugs and lizards are creeping into the rooms.

Thank you for your visita and your feedback. We do not have nets as they get damage very easy and we had to change them very often (in the past we had them). Our rooms are all with nets in the windows all the way around. Insects love the light so having all the light or some lights on and...

Really great location, amazing views, and a hidden beautiful beach. They may could improve private trails but still they are nice and we saw some anomals as well. At the beach (around 20 min walk) we were basically alone.
