La Cusinga’s history began around 40 years ago, when owner John Tresemer came down to Costa Rica as a young sociologist student. Finding that the deeply-rooted, agriculturally based community set in the still virgin jungles of the south-pacific represented much of what was lacking in an increasingly modernized American society, John decided that here he would struggle to fulfill his dream of sustainable living: a balance between a respect for the area’s natural wealth with the need to harvest a living off of its capital. Since the lodge opened 15 years ago, this family operation has developed into a truly sustainable business model, finding financial viability by combining a stewardship of the local ecosystems with a deep understanding of the need for continued human development.   La Cusinga Lodge, Real EcoTourism
