Hidden in the hilltops overlooking the pristine beaches of Costa Rica's still-virgin south pacific, where the ocean crashes into the jungle sits La Cusinga. Tucked away in a private reserve of over 600 acres, this rainforest lodge provides guests with sweeping ocean views, sandy beaches, natural pools, and the chance to experience the burgeoning forests and astonishing wildlife of the country's most famous ecosystem - OSA. The hotel offers ten rooms designed with sustainably-harvested wood and local materials to maximize comfort while minimizing impact on the environment. The open-air restaurant creates an ideal setting for couples and families alike to enjoy delicious tropical dishes made with fresh produce grown on our farm. The lodge's genuine commitment to sustainable practices along with our first-hand experience in local and national conservation efforts enrich our guests' appreciation of these ecosystems and the importance of their continued preservation. This unique insight enhances the exploration of the natural surroundings while the beautiful location offers the tranquility of fresh ocean breezes and breathtaking sunsets that make for the perfect tropical escape.

The restaurant here is always our favorite. They have a great selection and offer healthy selections. You are seated in a comfortable dining area that over looks the ocean from a tree house view. Every time we visit we see different exotic animals. We have video tapped small

On the ocean with tremendous views, this lodge has everything: extraordinary primary forest, its own beach (steep steps), beautifully crafted cabins, simple and rustic, but elegantly so. And the food is great, especially the breakfasts!

La Cusinga in my and many others eco tourists opinion is indisputably the best eco lodge in the entire Costa Rica and one of the best in the world, period. The tranquility of the place, the smell and sounds of the tropical rain forest and the Pacific Ocean are the perfect

Hi can you walk to the beach and town from this hotel?
La Cusinga has a fresh water pool reached across a footbridge & down a twisting path. Since we arried in a heavy rain, the next day the pool was cloudy and we didn't swim. The pool is fed by 2 small waterfalls. I did not take the trail to La Cusinga's beach, but my husband did. He said it was lovely, albeit a bit rocky. He reported that the trail down was a bit rough.
