We first stayed at Tiskita Jungle lodge in 2006, and we have returned, with ever-greater enthusiasm, every year since then. We now plan to stay each February for about 3 weeks. Tiskita is a lovely, family-run eco-lodge with a wide variety of things to see and do -- wildlife (especially monkeys and birds!), the beach, the rain-forest trails, the swimming...

Wheelchair access is not something I ever expect when adventure traveling internationally, but Tiskita has gone out of their way to make their facilities as accessible as any remote lodging I've ever stayed at. My cabaña was 100% accessible, and I mean entry, doors, deck, bathroom, shower (need your own bench) and all, and the birding and wildlife easily viewable...

I think it's important to separate the facility from the setting. It was wonderful watching the monkeys travel though the trees and the macaws circling overhead. The setting is in the middle of a restored jungle; but the lodge was built by Peter and it shows. I have spent time "off the grid" -- Mara, Kenya; "end of the road"...

To use another guest's comment - 5* Rustic. The wildlife was VERY accessible- any short walks in the grounds set us scrambling for the camera. Amazing. Sitting on the lawns at the main lodge with a coffee before breakfast was both relaxing and exciting in equal measure. The variety of birds was awesome, with squirrel monkeys, capuchins, sloths, iguanas, frogs...

I visited the nature preserve at Tiskita and spent a wonderful 2.5 hours on a guided tour walking through their preserve. It was a wonderful experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and university educated. He was able to spot a two toed sloth up in a tree shortly after we started our walk that was very difficult to see. I...

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend an amazing 7 days in this tropical paradise. All of the staff and the owners were wonderful, helpful and knowledgeable. The "Tiskita" experience is one that could not be duplicated anywhere. The flora and fauna was beyond belief. There are numerous opportunities for hiking, bird watching, fishing and surfing. Take advantage...

This morning we took a guided 2.5 hour walk through the jungle at Tiskita Lodge. This area has been reclaimed from pasture land. We were lucky and saw 10 types of wildlife. The guide, Mario, was extremely knowledgeable, obviously University educated. Will do this again, when I come back.

We spent four nights at Tiskita Lodge between Christmas and New Years, and had a fantastic time. We had been researching destinations in Costa Rica, and everything was booked. We were a little unsure when we called Tiskita and they had plenty of space. We decided to follow our hunch and the many positive Trip Advisor reviews, and were not...

This year our appreciation of Tiskita was increased by the presence of Mario, the new guide, and Jess, an Ayurvedic practitioner. We increased our bird list and enjoyed all our guided walks with Mario, whose care and respect for people, animals and the whole environment of Tiskita reflects the deep joy we feel each and every visit. Warm welcome is...

After a too short stay of 3 nights we could scarcely bear the commercialism of Antonio.
