We were there in the beginning of November, still rainy season... But that's the way to experience it. We were given umbrellas and ponchos when needed. To get there, you take a boat for an hour that travels through the rivers. Great sites on the way. Other boat rides include an early morning (6 a.m.) to see the early risers... More

This place looks and feels like a very nice summer camp you might find in the US. If you enjoy camping, you'll be pleased with this place. If you are a strictly-hotel person, you may be unhappy. I'm not sure why they call it a "lodge," since the rooms are more like connected cabins in rows. Each one feels like... More

No phones, no TVs, no traffic...just turtles, birds, frogs, the occasional iguana and some wonderful hospitality. Go during the turtle hatching season if you can. Being able to walk from your room to the beach where these magnificent creatures are laying eggs and where their young hatch and scurry to the sea is a unique and humbling experience. Our guide...

A great trip -3 days, 2 nights. Our package included travel to and from San Jose and it was a beautiful drive. The butterfly garden where they stop for meals (breakfast on the way there and lunch on the way back) was a little sketchy, but only one of my family got an upset stomach from the food. The boat...

I stayed two nights in this truly atmospheric lodge as part of a wonderful group tour last December, and I loved it. The rooms, set along airy verandas with your own rocking chair, were not of your deluxe-could-be-anywhere-in-the-world variety: they were old-time wooden lodges with dark walls, basic beds, good functioning fans (vital in that humidity!), and screened windows. When... More

The Rooms are not accessorized with anything, the beds are old. The restaurant offers very BASIC buffet and the pools do not have working showers. For the price, maybe not worth it.. But the prices are very high in all the lodges in tortuguero... You will want to stai absolutely not more than 2 nights. Some tour operators suggest 3... More
