The location for this lodge could 'nt be better.Surrouded by nature and wildlife you could'nt ask for more.You arrive by boat which is a trip in itself.When you get too hot you can take a dip in either of the pools.

It is not the accommodation that makes this resort so wonderful, it is the proximity of the wildlife, directly above your room, in some cases. We had Howler Monkeys wake us at 4.30 in the morning! The rooms are basic but the experience here Is not to be missed. The boat tours are wonderful starting with the transportation by boat... More

Well it's a real adventure when the only way to arrive is by boat. The resort is by no means luxurious but what you don't get in the room is compensated by the surroundings! Lots of wildlife literally at your door step and bearing in mind everything is transported by boat they do an amazing job to feed everybody in... More

Pachira Lodge provides an "all-inclusive" experience in Tortuguero NP. We enjoyed our "standard" accommodation and plentiful, excellent fare in the beautiful dining room, a guided tour of the natural surroundings near the lodge, plus opportunities for additional activities in the area (a walking tour of the turtle beaches and the village of Tortuguero in daytime on the day of arrival,...

We spend two days there and we enjoy a lot. The rooms are very convenient , the gardens around are very nice. The guide there had a lot of knowledge about the animal and all spices around including of course the Laing eggs process of the turtles . The buffet was quite good and very rich.

The lodge is in the middle along the rain forest, along the shores of Tortugero Lagoon and a short boat ride from the Tortugero village. Boat or plane/boat is the only way in. We took a bus and then transferred onto a boat that took just over an hour, nice ride in, just glad it wasn't raining. The luggage xfer... More

This lodge knows how to organize! We were transported early from San Jose with a touringcar, got a breakfast complimentary from pachira lodge, and when we arrived to cano blanco, everything was settled for us. Professional, on time, perfect guides, fantastic experience. We've seen the turtles laying eggs, and although it rained very hard, we were so happy! When we... More

This is a lodge completely surrounded by nature in the middle of the rainforest. There are no roads, it is only accessible by boat via canal. The rooms are not luxurious, no AC, phones, internet or tv. But you're not here for that. You're there for the nature. And in that sense, it's fantastic. There was a family of howler... More

We have never been in a place as Tortuguero. Tortuguero is >1h by boat of the closest road! We were in the middle of a reserve. This is a eco hotel very well designed with very nice rooms. The staff was fantastic and all the activities were very good. We recommend if you can to go at night to see... More
