Commitment to Sustainability


La Cusinga and the CST:

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.

Despite the over 40 years that we have lived off of this precious land, we know that we ourselves, just as much as our visitors are all guests here. We believe that the true path to global "sustainability" begins with the personal commitment of individuals and small business owners, and that nature is the best teacher. For this reason we have structured our policies and practices to mirror the environment's systems, where one process's outputs are re-utilized as intputs in new cycles, thereby eliminating completely the notion of "waste".
