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.

... Uvita beach you can go see the whales for 55USD but we preffered to hit the road and continue to Jaco Hermosa, which is the place to be for surfers. We had a nice lunch and headed to the national park Manuel Antonio. The beaches between Jaco and Puntarenas are better to be avoided- we were surprised but you do find some unswimmable beaches in Costa ...
... I didn't find the diving at Caņo Island mind blowing, but that could have just been because of the weather on the day (heavy showers, kind of overcast) affecting the visibility. There were definitely new species of fish I've never seen before, but I didn't think the overall number of species I saw was particularly high. However, if you're going to be in the Drake Bay area, it's definitely worth a look.
... the actual falls, a 7m drop into an even more torrid pool. David ventured in first and apart from being cold, the force of water kept pushing him back into the rocks. There was no chance of swimming here, only getting wet for a photo.
The local boys had followed us up river and were obviously keen to impress us. With their efforts to swim across the pool thwarted by the current, they dragged themselves across with help of a fallen bamboo ...
... is home to the worlds longest whale migration period. You can see whales here the majority of the year. Even better, there's a natural peninsula type thing that appears at low tide called the whale's tail. It's a bunch of rocks joined to the shore by a sand bar that happens to look exactly like a whale's tail. We took a photo that gives you the gist when we walked out there, but you can only really appreciate the shape from the air, so I've included a google images photo ...
... heads out of the bay, with our guide Gustavo and the two Swiss we had press ganged into doing Sirenna. This boat is quick, the ocean is not rough but rough enough to cause an overpowered fibreglass boat to crash and roll heavily. S turns green and I persuade her to sit sat the back (less movement in these type of boats). Fortunately this is all her idea otherwise by now I would be divorced. Talking, cuddling touching and comforting are not options when S is dying. ...
