If you are looking for a semi-rustic resort with no AC, Laguna Lodge is perfect. While the climate is obviously hot and humid, they have adequate fans in the rooms to keep you as cool as possible. Food and service is outstanding and our kids really enjoyed the pool. Be prepared for the climate but a great way to visit... More

The best part about our stay here was our guide Randall! Funny, helpful, well-organized, great tour guide! And Primo, our boat captain, truly has an "eagle eye," when it comes to spotting the wildlife. Our boat tour of the national park was incredible. We saw howler monkeys, toucans, caymans, and much more that I can't remember! Our room was comfortable.... More

My family stayed at Laguna Lodge in June. It's really a neat place located between the rainforest and the Atlantic. We did not visit during the sea turtle nesting season but we did see some incredible wildlife. The lodge is basic but the grounds are well kept, the pool is very nice and the staff was very friendly. The rooms... More

We stayed at the Laguna Lodge for two nights (March 20-21, 2015). Most of the people staying there are part of a tour group of some sort. Almost everything is included, including transportation from and to San Jose. We actually joined the tour at a restaurant in Guapiles which is the breakfast stop on the trip to Tortugero. A number...

This was our second visit to Laguna Lodge and we would definitely go back. The restaurant, hammock cabana and bar face the Tortuguero River and you can walk out the back of the grounds to the Caribbean ocean. It's a great place to kick back and enjoy the tropical jungle with its sights and sounds, or explore Tortuguero National Park... More

This could not have been a better first stop on my Eco-Adventure. We were right in the midst of it all! The canals, the jungle, the ocean. The birds and the flowers were just magnificent. Every room has a porch with rocker(s). The sounds are hypnotic. On the boat excursion, we saw so many birds, reptiles,monkeys and of course, flowers.... More

Very beautiful place to stay, of course it's basic no phones TV or clock in the room. The room itself is all gorgeous wood with lovely tile mosaic touches. The staff was wonderful and the food is great. We bought our package thru Groupon and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the entire package.

Booking was quick and easy. Rates are posted I their website. They picked me up in San Jose on time. The accommodations are clean, nice and comfortable. There is only a fan and it's very hot but I enjoyed my secluded time in the jungle. The food was delicious. The premises were clean, quiet and relaxing.
