20 dollar for a double room with bathroom. A balcony with seaview. If you leave food in the room a colony of ants will invade your room. Also small ants on the bed. Good kitchen. We got a room for 4 people just for the 2 of us. So space enough.

The rooms are okay and cheap. In the kitchen there is everything you need to cook a small meal and the staff is friendly. But both, the room and the kitchen are not very clean.

Cabinas Meriscar is tucked down an alleyway in the center of charming Tortuguero. The first night we stayed here we were greeted by one of the friendly owners and shown a small stuffy room with a bed and a fan and nothing else. The following day we moved to a much nice corner room with two windows allowing air to... More
