La Kukula Eco Lodge, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

Resting next to the Costa Rican Jungle canopy and neighbouring some of the most beautiful beaches, is La Kukula Eco Lodge in Puerto Viejo. The grounds at La Kukula are thoughtfully designed with the perfect balance of rustic and elegance.

Much care was put into the lodge, being sure that the materials used blended well with the natural settings.

The jungle surrounded us and filled our days with bird songs, and the calls of howler monkeys.
There is no place that better calms us than the sounds, sights, and smells of the jungle.

La Kuluka Eco Lodge is a 5km drive from the town of Puerto Viejo, but bike rentals are in walking distance. After a night here, it is likely you won’t want to undertake a trip into town.

Playa Chiquita is only a 5 minute walk from the lodge, and is one of the least populated, and most beautiful beaches we have ever been to.
Bunches of palm trees line the beach, and curve over as if trying to kiss the land.

La Kukula offers 8 rooms spread out amongst 3 bungalows, with 1 shared pool. There is also a large suite house with a private pool. All spaces are surrounded by lush jungle ensuring your privacy.

This B and B offers daily breakfast of fresh fruit, and traditional Costa Rican fare included in the rate, and on demand fresh dinner at an extra cost.

One of the highlights of our time at the lodge was our moonlight tour around the frog pond. We spotted several red eyed leaf frogs-one of the most photographed frogs in the world, a few bull frogs, tiny golden frogs, and a tree snake. We were advised to never try to grab or hold any wild life as the oils on our skin could upset the balance of the creature.

In the evenings we sat on our porch listening to wild symphonies while the much needed rain came down.

When it was time to retreat, we would crawl into our cozy beds, and be lulled to sleep by a natural lullaby.

The jaguar rescue centre is only a 20 minute walk from the lodge, and is highly recommended.

There are several options for places to stay in Puerto Viejo, but we really enjoyed La Kukula Eco Lodge because it is deeply nestled into the jungle, it is private, they are very considerate to the wildlife around them, and conscious of their eco footprint.
