La Kukula Lodge is situated in the heart of the south Caribbean jungle of Costa Rica, yet only 300 metres from the white sands of Playa Chiquita / Puerto Viejo de Limon.


Kukula is the name given to sloths (Bradypus tridactilus) by inhabitants of the south Caribbean region of Costa Rica. No one knows the exact origin of the word but it is believed to derive from one of the many indigenous languages.


With 8 rooms available, the lodge is ideal for visitors looking to relax and revitalise themselves. Each room is en suite, equipped with hot water, fans and mosquito nets, and has fantastic views from private terraces onto the sylvan garden.


At La Kukula Lodge you can eat breakfast while listening to the sounds of the jungle; observe the feasting kukulas (commonly known as sloths…) and the curious iguanas; take a dip in the pool as toucans fly overhead; or simply read a good book, immersed by the jungle.


In this little part of the jungle no two days are the same, and with a paradise on your doorstep you don't have to travel far to appreciate all the flora and fauna that surrounds you.


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.
