In terms of eco-lodges, this place is the real deal.
The thought that went into the sustainable architecture is apparent in all of the beautiful details, and the surroundings are teeming with tons of wildlife. The beach looks as though it's part of a Jurassic Park set, and the food is superb.
In all, La Cusinga is a wonderful manifestation of the eco-tourism concept. The staff are local (as are the owners) and everything has been planned to help visitors put the least amount of strain on the local ecology while they learn about it and enjoy it.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
