La Cusinga Eco Lodge is a coastal rainforest eco lodge, pioneer in Eco Tourism and Sustainable Tourism. Dedicated to marine and terrestrial conservation and environmental education. Its location on the southern Pacific coast provides guests with sweeping ocean views and a relaxing beach vacation.
La Cusinga is part of a private nature reserve, that supplies the visitor with an unparalleled look at Costa Rican wildlife and rainforest. The reserve consists primarily of 200 hectares of virgin rainforest that borders thousands of more acres of privately protected forest.
La Cusinga Eco Lodge is located in Costa Rica’s still wild south-western Pacific coast, also borders Ballena Marine National Park. The “Parque Nacional Marino Ballena” was developed to protect the humpback whales that frequent the coast. La Cusinga’s founder John Tresemer was instrumental in the foundation of the park along with efforts by the Cousteau Society and the President of Costa Rica.
La Cusinga Lodge was established in order to share the unique site with Costa Ricans as well as international visitors. Besides getting exposure to rural Costa Rican culture and beautiful views; visitors have access to highly prolific areas of primary tropical rainforest and unspoiled coast, all conveniently accessible.
La Cusinga Eco Lodge is constantly looking for the perfect balance between the natural and social environment. We are protecting our forest and we want to keep it as it is, without harming or changing the delicate ecosystems that are working inside each corner in the jungle and the woods.
We have a project that is dedicated to reforestation of the river banks, and the areas that are still not covered by forest. As part of this project we plant trees to keep the reforestation projects going; so if you want to plant a tree let us know. We will be glad to to explain our project and to let you help us plant a tree.
Depending in the time of year you can get the bags ready and plant the seeds, or help collect the seeds. if it is the right time we can plant the tree directly in the place where it will become part of the Rain forest. We look forward to your contribution to Mother Earth.
You can also help out in trash collection, ask for a trash bag as you head down to the beach and help us keep the beach clean. Pickup trash at the beach and we will pickup the bag at the bottom of the stairs.
