Loved the location, right on the beach, a bit away from the village centre so very quiet for those dreamy evening hanging in the hammock and listening to the waves pounding. It's a very simple place - mind you, exactly as it is advertised - yet i loved the simplicity and exotic feel to it. Owner and his wife are... More

Was really surprised by the great reviews of this place. We planned to stay two nights but only stayed one and couldn't wait to get out of there. They started trying to sell us tours before we even got on the boat in La Pavona. Once we got to Tortuguero, after four hours of travel, they took us aside and... More

Nice location, if you walk the beach or path down south you enter the national park. Rooms are very simple, shower is small and electrically heated. If you dont bother a basic and not so comfortable room it's a good choice. Remember that nothing gets dry over there.

Sleep to the sound of waves, have a conversation with the wonderful family that runs the place, eat an awesome breakfast of pancakes and incredible coffee, and then go see the turtles! The price is great, we slept great, and couldn't be happier with the service. Highly recommended!

The El Icaco is located right by the beach near the Tortuguero Nationalpark. It's the perfect place if you want to be both near nature and by the beach. They offer breakfast and clean, simple cabinas for a reasonable price. REcoomendable!

Although we visited in one of the wettest months for 10 years we were greeted with smiles by all the staff. The hotel is on the edge of town however it faces out onto the beach. Their rooms are quite basic and we didn't get hot water despite it being advertised. Be cautious of a local tour guide named Adolfo... More

Nice little place, friendly staff. Very hot here but I had a fan in my room. Place has wifi. Was also nice to relax in the hammocks looking at out at the sea. Had a little problem with ants but this was quickly resolved once I mentioned to the cleaners. I would recommend this place.

I arrived without a reservation and got a nice room with AirCon. The staff has been great and has gone out of their was to make me feel very comfortable. The food at the restaurant is also very good. Not surer about every room but the WiFi worked great in my room. The Shower was Warm, not "hot" but it... More

We flew in from San Jose by Nature Air in Tortuguero. Calixto arranged to have someone picked us up by boat from the airstrip to the village. There is also someone who greeted us at the dock and walked us to Icaco. We got there at 6:30 am and they let us checked in. My 14 year old is not... More
