Un lugar mágico
Opinión escrita el 2 de Enero de 2016
Tiskita es un lugar para perderse y recargar energías. El trato es increíble, el lugar es indescriptible de lo lindo que es, sólo cosas buenas se puede decir de este lugar. Un poco lejos pero vale la pena. Totalmente recomendado!
Beautiful non-commercial place to experience nature up close
Opinión escrita el 15 de Marzo de 2020
My wife and I were at Tiskita in early Feb, 2020 and it was a great all-around experience. One of our favorite nature lodges ever!
If you want to settle into a place which is totally eco-friendly and non-commercialized, this is the place. Nothing fancy, just a great experience of the pacific coast jungle (and nearby beach) at your own pace.
The resident guide, Mario, is a fount of knowledge and is always ready to help you see and appreciate things you might otherwise miss. I have a problem walking distances and he was very accommodating in enabling me to explore at my own pace and get to places I would otherwise have difficulty with.
The room we were in was spacious (for a nature lodge) and had a balcony from which we could easily view scarlet macaws, frigatebirds, and lots of different tropical butterflies. Some people might not like being woken up just before dawn by the cries of Howler monkeys, as we were one morning, but for us this was part of the fun!
The food we were served was yummy and our dietary requirements were easily accommodated. Plus there was homemade chocolate and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. In fact Tiskita was originally started as a farm with an orchard, but when all the animals showed up to enjoy the fruit, the founder decided to turn it into a nature lodge. Which says a lot about the kind of place it is!
All in all very highly recommended for those who want the total opposite of Disney.
Wonderful eco-lodge with renovated units
Opinión escrita el 22 de Enero de 2020
Thie may be the first review of this property since they renovated the cabins. The lodge is still basic in that the units (we were in cabin 7) still have no A/C, just a powerful fan, screens rather than windows, and an outdoor but very modern bathroom. Cabin has a great ocean and sunset view. The balcony had a couple bugs and little harmless lizards, but never saw a mosquito in three days on the property. The crashing of acean waves can be heard, but the howler monkeys were not an issue. We saw agouti, coati, monkeys, birds, and iguana from the balcony. Around the property, guided by Mario(the best guide in CR), we saw a whole range of interesting flora and fauna. Things like the outdoor bathroom and the 5 minute walk to the main building sound like an issue but are not. (Bring flashlights)
Lizbeth is still around but management is now done by her daughter Alana and Gennar, the on-site manager. Food is very good and they will cater to your preferences and allergies. Fruit is fresh from their farm/orchard, as is the chocolate. The beach is worth a visit, but the pool is better for relaxation.
There is an informal family feel to the [property. The only con is the flight to Golfito, then 1.5 hour drive to this fantastic place. Highly recommend a stay.
An enchanting lodge set in amazing surroundings
Opinión escrita el 13 de Marzo de 2019
We went to Tiskita because a friend recommended it and we weren't disappointed. It was, in fact, one of the best places we stayed at in Costa Rica and we hope to return. The lodge is set within a jungle that the owners have worked hard to preserve and wildlife abounds. The cabins are located in the grounds of the lodge and we had a detached one with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. If you want a five star luxury hotel then this isn't for you but the location is amazing and the family who own it offer the warmest of welcomes.
Be prepared to pay for what you don’t get
Opinión escrita el 24 de Febrero de 2019
This resort features 2 star accommodation and service at a 5 star price. If you are willing to pay through the nose to tell your friends how you spent time ‘roughing it’ in a Costa Rican jungle, you will love it here.
There was no one there to meet us when we arrived. Eventually, an off duty tour guide was rousted out of the kitchen to handle our check in. We were led down the road to our room which was reminiscent of summer camps I attended as a child in North Ontario... rustic, exposed beams and dark. The room was tiny! The deck, a shared space, the bed uninviting with only two little pillows. The outdoor bathroom was great though :). There was no internet and no AC (not a problem personally, but for $300 a night it might be expected by some).
We were told to wear closed toe shoes because of snakes and to bring a flashlight on our hike up to dinner. We didn’t have either— which is, I am guessing here, just part of the experience we were paying for.
Dinner was at a preset time and a preset meal (no menu choices here) and ‘family style’ (we were told where and with whom we would eat). The food was forgettable.
During the night I was awakened by scratching noises and stuff landing on my face. Turning on the lights revealed a large mouse (rat?) on the ceiling frantically trying to gnaw his way out. While I can’t blame the resort for this, it is notable that there was no one and no way to call for help and we were only able to deal with it because we had walking sticks with us and were able to drag in an outdoor bench to stand on.
On the plus side, one employee, Marco, was great. He arranged for extra pillows and flashlights to be delivered to our room. The beach is wonderful (just not really close), the hiking trails are good (just not well marked) and the waterfalls and natural pools above it are beautiful. We saw lots of scarlet macaws.
In summary we got way less then we paid for. But, something tells me, that that is exactly what we were paying for.
