Tiskita has a swimming pool, a small library, and other facilities. When you lounge by the swimming pool, birds, monkeys, sloths, and the resident iguanas are usually around.
The lodge is located centrally between the cabins. From the lodge, it is only a few minutes walk to the cabins, the rainforest, the beach and the waterfall & fresh water pools. The swimming pool is directly next to the lodge.
Dining Area & Bar
The lodge has an open air dining area with ceiling fans. The self-service bar is connected to the lodge and close to the swimming pool. There is no music at the lodge, the only sounds are the nearby ocean and the wildlife.
Tiskita serves authentic healthy Costa Rican and some western meals family style. All our food is as local as possible and our staff is from the town of Punta Banco.
Vegetarian diets, or other special dietary requirements, are easily accommodated.
Jams, dressings and frescos are all homemade using many of our own fruits. Tortillas and the chips we serve are also freshly made every time. Always available throughout the day are freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee and locally sourced fresh juices.
