By must, I mean Toruguero but I can recommend Pachiro. In common with the location of what I assume all Tortuguero lodges have, this is on a canal and the buildings are elevated a meter or so above the ground. The 4 rooms in clusters of 4 are a bit primitive but certainly acceptable and most or all are connected... More

Our visit to Pachira Lodge was very interesting. The Lodge is situated on Laguna near Caribbean and is like in jungle .One can wonder around and enjoy the spa and two swimming pools.We had a good guide who shed light on the fauna and the animal species which are inhabiting this beautiful area. During the canal tours we saw monkeys,... More

Nice but simpel place where you can really enjoy the jungle. Lokal food, eco-oriented cabins (a little more light would be convenient), no ac but moscito net instead of glass in the windows, so you can really enjoy the sounds of the jungle. Nice pool and bar area, howler monkeys hanging around. Friendly staff. Enjoy the boat trip 1 hour... More

The hotel is situated about a 11/2 hr boat ride up the canals. It is set right in amongst the Jungle. The rooms are simple yet comfortable; they all have private facilities and a celing fan. They are situalted along weaving parthways and blocks of four back to back. The food is varied, very enjoyable in the restaurant and there... More

Me and my husband came to this lodge for our honeymoon vacation, with a package that we closed in Puerto Viejo, as soon as we arrived, After a long boat ride we was amazed by this beautiful place, we got a cabin surrounded with trees a flowers, large bed and nice comfortable bathroom. The only thing that interfere is that... More

First stop on a two week tour of Costa Rica. Fine start! Long bumpy road to the river head. Two hour boat trip to the lodge. From the first minute we were watching crocodiles and iguanas and from then on it was wildlife all the way so no complaints there. The lodge itself was lovely. Covered walkways from the reception...

Right in the middle of the forest Pachira Lodge is probably about as enviromentally aware as is practical. Fascinating because you can wander around the extensive grounds and find all sorts of animals. The birdlife is terrific and you can get visited by howler monkeys when having a drink on the waterfront in the afternoon. The cabins are simple but... More

The boat trip that gets you to the resort is already part of the experience. Arrived at destination a wonderful property, integrated in the nature, greets the traveler. Small units with a few rooms each surrounded by large trees. Monkeys are everywhere, specially at night when you understand why the howler monkeys got their name. A small trail on the... More

What an amazing experience. We took our family of four (2 adults and 2 boys – 12 and 13 years old) to Costa Rica for ten days in March 2015 and Tortuguero was our last stop before heading home. I wish we had had more time. The resort grounds are beautiful. There are monkeys, toucans, parrots, lizards and iquanas that... More

It's a jungle lodge so don't expect 5 star luxury. But the room was spacious and comfortable. No air-con but the ceiling fan was adequate. Plenty of good hot water. Nice bar and pool area. Lovely gardens with a variety of wildlife - which the helpful staff were keen to point out. This included deer, howler and spider monkeys a... More
