Pavones Travel Guide
The ultimate eco lodge vacation is one with as little in the way of disturbing modern technology as possible, and that's where Costa Rica's Tiskita Jungle Lodge trumps many of its competitors: Tiskita is usually reached only by airplane, and once you're there you won't be interrupted by phones, TV or email messages. Local birds and animals will be the noisiest thing there and you can go fishing, riding or hiking with a guide instead of watching the box.
Accommodation at Tiskita is in wooden cabins that are quite separate from each other; they come complete with hammocks that you can lie in and watch the Pacific Ocean. There are both single room cabins and family cabins. Meals are served along "healthy eating" lines using local produce.
Tiskita also truly deserves its eco-lodge label, as it runs a number of interesting conservation projects. These include the Scarlet Macaw reintroduction program, the sea turtle conservation project and a focus on native tree reforestation.
Typical packages at Tiskita include all meals, two guided walks and some exotic tropical fruit drinks; high season rates start at $895 for a four-night package or $1065 for a week.
