TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Cusinga Eco Lodge Uvita
One of the most beautifully located lodges I've seen in three months in Costa Rica. You're staying the midst of a private reserve, and won't see or hear anyone other than other guests and staff. Monkeys, birds and other wildlife abound. The Pacific views are fantastic, and it is a ten minute walk to either the beach or a spring-fed pool in the forest. The restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is good and a little more interesting than the Costa Rican average. This is a genuine eco-lodge, so the accommodations are simple, but very clean and comfortable. One of my favorite spots to simply be, without the necessity of doing anything other than watch the ocean and listen to the birds.

I stayed up for two canvases and painted a broccoli head with a face, a koala (story to follow) and two birds.
As I was painting I met a man ...
... and dark, not my favorite. The bus was full of locals, who I presume were on their way to work, probably in David, which is the largest town in the area and a major transportation hub. There are only two busses a day that go from David, through the border and onto San Jose, Costa Rica, and if we missed the morning bus we would not get to our destination until sunset – another one of my least favorite things.
Fortunately we got to the ...
... time of year, in addition to the possibility of seeing large schools of fish, sharks, rays, turtles and dolphins, there is a chance you can see the migrating Humpback Whales. After a bumpy 1 hour boat ride over to the island from Drake Bay, we descend on our first dive at "Sharko" to be blessed with the sound of soft whale song in our ears. At first the song is quite faint but as we dive around different rock structures, the eerie ...
... to get us. A brilliant place with a spectacular view but in the rainy season you must expect a few visitors from the jungle to say hello.
After these two nights, we moved into the big house and the El Cielo room; luxurious with a large window-view and extended balcony-view into the unspoilt far distance and a bathroom you would expect in a fancy premier hotel.....with another fantastic vista which you wouldn't get!
The dogs here are very sociable. Palomo is a ...
