Welcome to La Cusinga Lodge, a naturalists' heaven on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica... a whole tropical experience

La Cusinga Lodge is a coastal rainforest ecolodge dedicated to marine and terrestrial conservation and environmental education. Its location on the southern Pacific coast provides guests with sweeping ocean views and a relaxing beach vacation. In addition La Cusinga is part of a private nature reserve that supplies the visitor with an unparalleled look at Costa Rican wildlife and rainforest.


The reserve consists primarily of 250 hectares of virgin rainforest that borders thousands of acres of privately protected forest. La Cusinga maintains several trails that wind through the pristine protected rainforest and along the beautiful beaches. From three-hour treks through the forest to short walks down to the beach there are trails for all ages and abilities. On each trail the visitor is sure to get a glimpse of the diverse Costa Rican wildlife.


Wildlife at La Cusinga is abundant and you will see many species that include: morpho butterflies, tree frogs, ospreys, parrots, parakeets, toucans, howler monkeys, bottle-nosed dolphins, hawksbill turtles and the great humpback whale. Their local guides enjoy accompanying guests of all ages & origins and showing them the most elusive creatures.


In addition to hiking trails there are opportunities for snorkeling, surfing, fishing, dolphin and whale watching, horseback riding, sea kayaking, scuba diving and island and mangrove exploration. If you are interested in learning about the native Costa Rican culture there are fun and informative activities highlighting reforestation work, woodworking, furniture making, and tropical agriculture.


The private, comfortable and breezy cabins at La Cusinga each have magnificent ocean views and contain 2-3 beds and private bath with hot water. In addition there are cabins for large groups with dorm style accommodations, hot water and ocean views. All the cabins and rooms are crafted from trees grown on the property and are decorated with all local crafts and arts.


The commitment to sustainable development and the community is evident throughout La Cusinga Lodge. The buildings are made from their own reforested woods, local materials, and are nestled in naturally harmonious settings. All wastewaters have a septic treatment that assures that no pollution ends up in the forest, river or the ocean. All of their electricity is from solar and hydropower, and the sun heats all their water. All trails are done in a way that has the least impact on the surroundings and the least amount of erosion takes place.
