A passion for place Sustainability and conservation at Costa Rica s La Cusinga Lodge

author Annika Hipple


It’s hard to beat the view from La Cusinga Lodge. Nestled on a hillside on Costa Rica’s still-wild southwest coast, the lodge occupies its own private nature reserve just south of the village of Uvita. Seen from the lodge buildings, the vista takes in a dense expanse of verdant rainforest spreading over the slopes, contrasting with the blue backdrop of the Pacific Ocean below. It’s the best of both worlds, a rich terrestrial ecosystem meeting one of Costa Rica’s most biodiverse marine environments. Around the lodge, trails lead through primary and secondary forest. Howler monkeys take up their strange and startling cry as tropical birds and butterflies flit by. At the base of the hill the trail emerges onto a secluded beach, while offshore, whales and dolphins visit regularly, and seabirds congregate on rocky islets.

With its comfortable rooms, delicious cuisine, and stunning location, La Cusinga is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Yet there’s more to this place than meets the eye. A deep environmental ethic underlies life at La Cusinga, where recycling, composting, organic farming, and sustainable construction are integral parts of daily operations. Committed to hiring local staff, the lodge also works closely with the community in other ways, supporting environmental education in local schools and promoting best practices among local tourism operators.
