Mission and Vision
The Gecko Restaurant
The local schools visit La Cusinga Eco Lodge during the year to learn about the ecological tourism business, recycling, compost, reforestation, the Ballena Marine National Park, the rain forest, local artisans, and nature in general.
The school Flor de Bahia has weekly visits to the lodge each Thursday, when one grade visits us and learns about the different topics. Uvita School visits us during the year, and we have already coordinated a similar activity with Flor de Bahia. We are contacting Ballena School and the other schools to promote the same with them. As neighbors of Costa Ballena and the communities of Uvita, Dominical, Bahia, Ballena, Ojochal and the other communities, it is an honor for us to invest our time in the education of the future leaders of our country. Our reward is to enjoy the expression of happiness and joy that the kids, parents and teachers show on their faces. For many years we have opened our doors to the schools of Costa Ballena, Cortes, Palmar Norte & Sur, and the county of Perez Zeledon.
