Great lodge in the middle of the jungle. You leave your room, 1m in front of you is a hammock, 1m more and you are practically in the forest with spiders, sloths, monkeys etc. The rooms that were built by the owners are clean and beautiful with the occasional frog or gecko sitting on the wall. We love listening to... More

I had a nice, wonderful week at the end of November 2015 in the heart of the jungle. This place is amazing. Seen a lot of animals from the comfort of my hammock, from sloths to eyelash vipers, geckos and frogs. Irene and Wolfgang are very welcoming, very friendly and were always happy to answer my questions regarding activities I... More

Very nice place, in the middle of the jungle. Irene and Wolfgang with all their animals (dogs, gooses etc.) were very friendly and helpful. In this place could even see more wild animals than in some national parks. We saw sloths, tucans, monkeys etc. from our own terrace. I really loved that place, even trip to to village has about...

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
