The place is suitable for visiting the channels and turtles. Food is included, and it is average. It is not a luxury hotel, but has basic services and its in the middle of the jungle. Short excursions are available upon request.

Just returned from family holiday and Evergreen was our first hotel on the tour. A fantastic start - right from getting in the boat to travel up the canals, to arriving in the forest, woken by monkeys and other jungle noises. Husband was worried about the mesh windows, but no bugs came in and it made it a unique experience.... More

My family loved the Evergreen Lodge. The experience of staying in the rain forest, with only screens on the windows, was incredible. The noises of nature - howler monkeys, birds, the loudest thunder I have ever heard, were everything I was hoping for on this trip. The boat rides to the lodge and around the area just added to the... More

This is a nice domain, with lots of activities. When we visited the place, we had lots of rain, which made it difficult to reach the place and even more difficult to get back. One big disadvantage: the huts have a metal roof and when it rains, the noise is overwhelming; so you'd better bring some earplugs. The food in... More

The food was good, although the desserts could have been a little better (maybe we just are used to the sugar-infused desserts in the States). We really liked the tours we went on. Although they need to better warn you about the hike of the grounds. When we were there, the mud was 1.5 feet deep in places. Someone ended... More

Stayed with teenager which would have been difficult if had stayed more than 2 nights as there is very little to do having said this as long as you pack in some sight seeing trips on the river or to see the turtles hatch you will be fine. A must is to take out a kayak and paddle your own... More

This is not just a review of the Evergreen Lodge but the whole package. As other have said the journey to Tortuguero is one big adventure. We have never experienced anything like this before. It was just amazing travelling along the Rio Suerte and then discovering the Evergreen Lodge was a wonderful start to our holiday in Costa Rica. There... More

We stayed at Evergreen Lodge for three nights at the start of our two week family holiday in Costa Rica. The lodge can only be reached by boat ... a wonderful river ride on flat bottomed boats through the rainforest. Guests arrived in groups on the same boat with a guide and itineraries, excursions and meals were all taken in... More

The hotel is reached via an hour long river ride. It is an oasisin the jungle. The turtle shaped pool is amazing, clean clear cool water cools you off in an instant in the heat and humidity that prevails this location.The cabins have no glass in the windows but are fully screened, so there is no problem with mozzies (mosquito's)...

We were just in Costa Rica a few days ago and this tour was one of the excursions that I was most excited for, mostly because it was going to be an overnight tour where our resort is literally in the rain forest, accessible only by boat. The tour guide was at our hotel on time and we departed from... More
