I chose this B&B based on the reviews and the price. Most lodges in this area are all inclusive and quite expensive. We paid $65 per night for the Superior rooms - facing the river and $55 for an upstairs room with partial river view. Breakfast was included.
Darryl set us up with two tours while there - a morning canal boat cruise with Roberto where we saw sloths, all three kinds of monkeys, toucans, baby Caimans and lots and lots of birds. It was fantastic. Then we did the turtle tour with Gina that night. We saw a turtle laying her eggs and covering them up and then saw another turtle heading back to and going into the ocean. Both tours were $20 each.
There are only a couple of restaurants in the village but both were quite nice - Cafe Buddha for lunch and Wild Ginger for dinner.
This is a great value and I would recommend you stay here if you are on a budget in Tortuguero.
