Is there air conditioning at La Cusinga Ecolodge?
La Cusinga Ecolodge does not have air conditioning; we are a low impact eco lodge that works rigorously to reduce our impact on the surrounding environment.  However, while this may come as a shock to some, we have found that the majority of our guests are quite comfortable.  The architectural design of La Cusinga Eco-lodge creates a fresh, breezy environment.

Do you have TV in the rooms of the hotel?
The rooms do not haveTV, since we are making an effort to minimize our impact in the nature that surrounds us; we use the fewer appliances possible.
