There’s something romantic about the thought of staying in a wooden cabin in the midst of the rainforest. The notion conjures up images of lush greenery, brightly colored macaws, juicy fruits, and hot humid nights.
There’s truth to those images at the Tiskita Jungle Lodge, where guests can enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the tropical rainforest in comfort. Stay in one of the many wooden cabins made of precious woods like mahogany, purpleheart, and rosewood, which have fallen to the forest floor.
Dance under a canopy of tropical trees. Or else, take a walk and explore up to 275 species of birds and a variety of other animals on the 800-acre biological reserve. Or grab a horse and take a tour by horseback and fall in love on one of the wilderness beaches. Hungry? The reserve has over 125 different species of tropical fruit to which guests can help themselves.
If being surrounded by all that tropical beauty is too much for you, you can take it all in lying in a hammock on the porch of your cabin. Each of which, let me add, boasts an ocean view.
Tiskita Jungle Lodge is one of the original ecolodges in Costa Rica. The family-run business was started in 1978 when Peter Aspinall built his home on the large piece of land and began reforesting. Soon the natural habitat was restored. Now Aspinall and his wife Lisbeth manage Tiskita Jungle Lodge where eco-tourists come to bask in a life that’s wild with beauty.
