In our many years of traveling throughout Costa Rica we always avoided the Caribbean side. What a mistake!!!!! Turtle Beach Lodge in Tortuguero changed our minds. We liked it so much that we went back 2 more times in less than 3 months and will probably go back again.
In comparison to places like Monteverde and Corcovado, Turtle Beach presented an abundance of wildlife with much easier access. It is all around you at Turtle Beach and you really feel like part of it all. For birdwatchers and wildlife and plant lovers I highly recommend Turtle Beach Lodge. If you need luxury accommodations and sparkling nightlife........... well, not so much. But if you're ready to relax and just take in the best of Costa Rica's "pura vida", you'll be in the right place.
Jesse and the rest of the staff are very friendly and attentive. We loved our guide, Luis. He was informative and so personable. We made a new friend. We were a little disappointed that the 3rd time we went we had requested Luis to be our guide again but we didn't get him for some reason. We had Mario as our guide, who we thought to be very knowledgeable and a nice guy so we were OK. Gustavo the bartender was an absolute sweetheart!!! Julio and Josue in the kitchen/dining room were always so attentive and helpful.
