La Cusinga Lodge is a great choice if you are looking for a home base in the Uvita area. We happened upon it on our last trip to Costa Rica through eating at Aracari Restaurant. We ate breakfast at Aracari during our stay and the service and food were exceptional. Roy and Michael, two of the waiters, shared great conversation with us. Our stay at La Cusinga exceeded my expectations. Hazel, the receptionist, was available when we needed her. She helped acclimate us on our first night in Costa Rica. The property includes walking trails, a pool, a beach, and even an area with a posa, or waterfall, where you can take a dip in a natural pool. There was no air conditioning in La Paloma, the room where we stayed. The lodge has running water and there was a fan in our room. The view of the forest and ocean outside of the room and our little yard with a reclined chair was my favorite part. I had an outstanding aromatherapy massage by Marcella at the yoga studio, which I would recommend at anyone looking for an extra treat. I would love to return to La Cusinga in the future. The place started felt like a second home during our trip. Thanks to all of the staff there. Keep on doing what you are doing!

La Cusinga is one of those special, magical places in Costa Rica that seems to get better and better with age. The views are spectacular, the hiking trails are amazing, and every part of the property feels special and private. They have added a beautifully designed pool right in the middle of the jungle and it fits right in. My wife and I enjoyed several mornings and afternoons there. But we also enjoyed the privacy and the magic of the fresh water poza (pool) a short hike away from the man-made pool. It sits at the bottom of a small catarata (waterfall) and is surrounded and shaded by the jungle. When we were there we felt as if we were the only people on the planet. Our cabin was cozy, the sheets were excellent, and the sound of the howlers early in the morning was a familiar wake-up call. The WiFi in the cabin was a good strong signal as well. The breakfasts were unformly excellent with ripe fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice and a choice of omelet, Gallo pinto, or pancakes. I'm not a huge fan of Gallo pinto, but the presentation here is special and the flavors work together better than most. I had ceviche for lunch twice and it was exemplary. Dinner was very good and the menu quite broad. We had a fantastic romantic getaway and would recommend La Cusinga to anyone who wants to experience the real Costa Rica.

I had the chance to stumble upon this amazing hotel property that gives access to the unique and exclusive Arco beach, as well as to natural pools within the river in the forest. There are hiking trails through the forest all around and accessible from Cusinga hotel, and accesses to more beaches too.... I also ate in the restaurant of the hotel, the Aracari, and had a wonderful time and meal. I first had a cocktail on the hotel deck - taking in the view. Then an excellent veggie meal with yet again more breathtaking views. I can only recommend you to visit this place and please give a scratch to the unlikely resident Pepe the cat - he is one adorable fur ball.

We would definitely recommend visiting this place, if you are looking to spend a relax time among nature. Pool is perfect for kids and you have as well many other options for adults, trails, yoga deck, "la poza", walking distance amazing beach, etc. Service was excellent, staff was helpful and very friendly, food was good, in general we enjoyed very much our stay. Only thing would be maybe to have at least a little fridge in the bigger rooms considering people traveling with little ones, besides that you won't regret your visit. I loved the fact of being an eco friendly place and we were lucky as well to see several "Cusingas" while enjoying sunset at " El Mirador"
