Surely the best lodge we had in our 5-week trip in Costa Rica. The view from the lodge is splendid! The term "eco" is well deserve. Highly recommanded!

Though La cusinga is beautful, and the staff very helpful, friendly and knowledgable, for those that are used to air conditioning or easy access you may find it challenging. Between 50-- 60 'boulder type' steps each way up and down from the car park down to our cabin or to the dining area, as the resort is built on a...

La Cusinga was a unique experience with the sounds of howler monkeys and lovely impressions of nature. Initially, group travel promoted an air conditioned lodge and the La Cusinga change without AC was a health problem for me. A second floor bunk bed assignment with no cross ventilation and an inefficient ceiling fan resulted in a sleepless struggle for breath....

We are sorry that you had such issues! The error was done from the travel agent that brought you here! As they know the place well and they know it is an EcoLodge with trails and nature all around it!

Now if only Sergio would sing for me..., I would have had everything. This was a great little eco-lodge along the beach.

La Cusinga is an eco lodge (CST 4 leaves) on a bluff above a pristine sand beach. A 15 minute walk through the forest brings you down to very safe ocean swimming. Spacious individual cabins all have ocean views. Staff are incredibly warm and welcoming. Food is almost all organic, plentiful, healthy and very tasty. Beautiful trails to walk through...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and our 2 nights at La Cusinga were the capstone of our 1 week visit. It was a pleasure to see such gracious accommodations integrated into the exquisite natural surroundings so flawlessly. It was perfect for us - relaxed, not overly fussy yet with great service and a clear attention to details....

Friendly personnel greet you and show you to the lovely view and your cabin. The breakfast, which is delicious, has an area with views toward the ocean, as do all the cabins. A short walk through the forested area, with birds and butterflies, takes you to a lovely, quiet, isolated, private beach area. You can stay in the shade or...

On a friend's tip, I booked a long weekend here December 2009 (the dropdown box wouldn't let me put 12/09 in, so I put 12/10). It was a very quick trip.
