Mission and Vision
The Gecko Restaurant
La Cusinga Eco Lodge is a coastal rainforest eco lodge 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.
In addition 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.
On Costa Rica's still wild south-western Pacific coast, La Cusinga Eco Lodge borders Ballena Marine National Park which was developed to protect the humpback whales that frequent the coast. 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. Also we are concerned about the continuous process that must be done if we want that this effort remains and that we all have access to the wonders of nature.
