La Cusinga Lodge Leaves Lasting Impression on Couple

Between its spectacular breathtaking views and a friendly, attentive staff motivated to make their guests’ experiences ones to cherish forever, La Cusinga Lodge provides an attractive destination for couples celebrating the most important day of their lives.

Attracting the couple to La Cusinga was the scenic view of a mountain range covered in trees colored with countless shades of green, the vibrant orange and red flowers, and the guarantee of seeing toucans, monkeys and butterflies.
