Helene and I stayed at the El Toucan Jungle Lodge Jan 17-23, 2015. Very personal accommodation with 2 building with 2 cabins each and the main building that the proprietors live in. The shared balcony faces the jungle. Rooms very comfortable with attached bathrooms. Suicide showers of course! They work very well. Irene and Wolf were tremendous hosts. $50 a... More

Spectacular immersion into the one of the last remaining primary forests in Costa Rica. My wife, myself and my father spent a night here at the beginning of July. We all agreed that we wished to have known about this place earlier we would have stayed here during are whole trip in Puerto Viejo. The owner was fantastic with us,... More

Had a great time here alternating excursions to Playa Cocles beach(20 mins walk) and relaxing in the beautiful setting of the Lodge whilst watching out for wildlife. Irene was always ready to share her sightings and knowledge of the local wildlife.

Unfortunately we had a disappointing experience with Tucan Lodge. When we arrived at 8pm the owners were very insistent that they were not expecting anyone and that they had no rooms available. We got the impression that they thought we had just rocked up and were trying our luck. They denied any responsibility for losing the reservation so we showed... More

This is an amazing place. Irene and Wolfgang are very nice people and it was a joy to stay at their lodge. The surroundings were very tranquil and I wish I could have had a day just to relax and read in one of their hammocks. Irene cleans your room every day and provides fresh towels daily. Yes the cabin... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. I wish we stayed for longer! If you are looking to literally stay IN the jungle this is the place. Your cabin will be right in the middle of it. Yet, it is still only a 10 to 15 min walk down a scenic dirt road to the main road which... More

We stayed here July 2013 for 5 days while touring Costa Rica. We are still amazed at what an incredible time we had here. It was the CHEAPEST place we've ever stayed in all our travels, but definitely the most adventurous. The cabinas are suspended right in the middle of the jungle. There are mosquito nets covering the top of... More

When thinking back on my 10 day experience at the lodge what jumps out at me is service. If I needed something Irene or Wolfgang seemed always to be able to help me get whatever it was. Including making a call to the US to help me with my credit and debt cards. I'm 67 years old and far from... More

Very nice location surrounded by many birds, howler monkeys. and more. We were close enough to the ocean to hear the surf. Irene took us around the property to point out the sloths that make El Tucan their home. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Great value with reasonable prices.

Irene and Wolfgang run a wonderful little Bed and Breakfast. Their cabanas feel like they are deep in the jungle and have big porches perfect for whiling away a morning (and afternoon) reading and looking for wildlife. Hear the sounds of birds instead of traffic. Breakfast and bike rental on site is convenient. Irene could not have been more helpful,... More
