Lodge consisting of a large number of wooden houses (2 persons each) directly in the jungle. The buildings are connected via wooden walk ways. We found the house comfortable and in good condition. Food was very good and the staff friendly and helpful. The lodge can only be reached by boat. We took the 1h boat trip from Cano Blanco,... More

Beautiful facility with abundant wildlife. As soon as we arrived on the way to our hut we saw a howler monkey with her baby right above us in the trees. That was just the start of our adventure as we saw many other critters over the following days including poison dart frogs, iguana, land crabs, big spiders, toucan and parrots.... More

I loved this place. All the comforts right there in the jungle. Staff and food were great and there was lots of wildlife right above us in the trees. Monkeys, iguanas, parrots and macaws. They offer boat trips up the Tortuguera and penitensia rivers and the ocean is only 5 minutes away by boat. Lots to see everyday.

After a long bus ride to the river bank, we boarded our covered boat for a speedy ride to Ahninga Lodge. This took about 1 hr, 15 minutes. There was enough water in the river so we didn't have to push the boat. We were warmly greeted upon arrival at the lodge's dock, and welcomed with an exotic non-alcoholic drink.... More

Howler Monkeys, sloths, tree frogs, basilisks and toucans - that was all within the first hour!!! Nestled in the middle of the jungle, our own individual little cabin was clean, bright and comfortable. The ceiling fan and screened windows helped keep it cool. We enjoyed spending time in the rocking chairs on the veranda- we saw lots of wildlife right... More

We were happy with our stay at the Aninga Lodge! It is little cabins/houses in the middle of beautiful nature. There are lots of monkeys and other wildlife like birds around. The cabins are really comfortable and clean! There is no internet or TV there.

Aninga lodge was arranged for us by a travel agent who recommended it because of the individual bungalos. The cabins were basic but nice and clean. They had ceiling fans and screen windows. They had a lovely pool area and the food was all included. In the morning we were awakened by howler monkeys which we were able to see... More

This property I believe is owned and managed by Pachira Lodge. The best thing about this place is that the units sit separately as individual units (like cabins) and you have windows on 3 sides of your unit. This is VERY important considering you do not have air conditioning in this region. Each has their own bathroom. All the windows... More

We stayed for two nights as part of a Caravan tour. The road to the boat launch is an adventure in itself. I just found out there are cheap flights from San Jose to Tortugero that get you there in 25 minutes, which is what we might do when we return. The lack of A.C. was no issue; the cottage... More
