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.

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....

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
