La Cusinga Ecolodge is an intimate family-run property swathed in jungle close to sweeping Pacific beaches. 

Set on a hill within a private jungle reserve overlooking the Pacific Ocean, La Cusinga is a family-run ecolodge, accredited for its conservation and environmental efforts. There’s also an accent on wellness, and the property features a yoga studio. You stay in one of ten attractive individual wooden cottages, all with high ceilings and large stone bathrooms.

Each has its own private balcony with spectacular views out to the ocean, where passing dolphins and whales can be spotted. There's a covered veranda for enjoying the ocean view. A 15 minute jungle walk where you can spot howler monkeys, sloths, and exotic birds leads to the lodge's own private beach - beautifully secluded, with rainforest spilling on to the white sand. Food at the lodge is excellent, with a variety of fresh Costa Rican dishes, and there's a selection of equally good restaurants in the nearby village.

What our clients say

  • So hard to pick out an individually memorable part. If pushed then we would have to select the two river wildlife trips (Tortuguero and Cano Negro) and overall the friendly nature of everyone that we had dealings with. Also having the wildlife right on our doorstep at each accommodation was very special.

    SY, Solihull
  • Everything felt "easy" and stress free. The most memorable aspect was driving through fantastic scenery, so much to see!

    AF, Cardiff
  • Highlight?: Visit to Tortuguero was exciting and remote. Rancho Margot was our favourite accommodation. It was a privilege to visit this beautiful country. 

    MC, Arlesly
  • Highlight: All of Osa - the guided walks in the forest, the early bird-watching trip, the food, watching spider monkeys from the beach and toucans from the balconies, the friendly owners and staff: the guided Toruguero river trip; the view of the volcano and lush bird-filled greenery from our balcony at Lost Iguana; the flight across the mountains....Both my experiences (Cuba and this one) with JLA have generally been well-organized, and have given me a real understanding of what each country has to offer, whether wildlife or history, and all staff have displayed a knowledgeable and caring attitude. Thank you. I hope I shall travel with you again.

    DH, London
  • Highlights “Our overall impression was how lovely all the people were that we met, amazing wildlife and very good food. Our most memorable experience was probably kayaking at Tortuguero although we also did a very good night walk when we were staying at Arenal, and spotted loads of frogs, toads, snakes and spiders.”

    JP, Newtown
  • A brilliant mixture of hotels. Excellent standard and great service. Beautiful settings and well located.
