My husband and I spent a week in the honeymoon suite bungalow at La Cusinga and had a wonderful experience. The setting is incredible, nestled on a hill overlooking the ocean. The food was delicious, each meal better than the next (especially the banana ice cream and the lunches, which were fabulous - the best chicken quesadilla I've ever eaten!) . And the staff was amazing, attentive to detail, warm and friendly. There are trails to hike, and beautiful yoga platform, and my favorite, the magical freshwater swimming hole, where we went to cool off almost every afternoon in between surfing lessons and yoga with the Bodhi Surf School. The property is a private nature reserve, and we were not disappointed with the wildlife - beautiful birds, white-faced and howler monkeys, frogs of all kinds, etc. There is no air conditioning, which took a day to adjust to, but then wasn't a problem in the bungalow with the ceiling fan and an extra fan available upon request. There is no TV or internet in the bungalows, but there is a wifi hotspot up near the restaurant which was more than adequate. It was a truly relaxing escape into nature and we were sad to have to leave at the end of the week.
