The commitment that La Cusinga lodge has to sustainable development and the community is evident throughout the lodge. The buildings are made from their own reforested woods, local materials, and are nestled in naturally harmonious settings. All black and grey waters have a septic treatment that assures that no pollution ends up in the forest, river or the ocean. All of our electricity is from solar and hydropower and the sun heat all their water. All trails are done in a way that has the least impact on the surroundings and the least amount of erosion takes place. The food we serve is made from products from our own gardens, and local suppliers of organic products. All our waste is recycled, organic produce is used for compost and all other products are recycled or taken to the municipal waste disposal site. La Cusinga has been making a positive impact on the community since its beginning. We hire local Costa Ricans who often stay for ten or more years. We are very active in the conservation of the park, humpback whales, the rain forest, beaches, and turtles. La Cusinga uses educational programs, such as speakers, seminars, and financial investment to conserve and preserve the surrounding resources and beauty. We host fun-days for the local schools, and make it an educational event for the students, professors and parents. Lastly, La Cusinga has been a voice for the community in the government concerning the preservation of humpback whales
