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

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Evergreen Lodge for one night and two days, and while the reviews of Evergreen Lodge are generally good, it just wasn't what we were expecting/looking for during our trip to Costa Rica. If you have never been to the jungle, and you would like all meals, travel, etc. taken care of/programmed for you,... More

This is a well run program and in Jun Jul the rainy season the lightening storms go mad with war like volume. The noise out side the individual rooms like Bora Bora on poles explodes with power And drama the jungle is alive.

We arrived at Evergreen Lodge via a 45 minute boat ride through the jungle, a great way to start our stay. We enjoyed our stay; heck, we even enjoyed be awakened by howler monkeys at 4:45 am every morning! The accommodations are probably as nice as can be expected in such a remote setting, and the lack of air conditioning... More
