This is an excellent option to be combined with our Río Pacuare Rafting trips. $218 per person – Tortuguero Economy (Accommodations in La Casona or similar) $258 per person – Tortuguero Standard (Accommodations in La Baula Lodge) Both La Casona or similar (economy option) and La Baula Lodge (standard option) are located only five minutes from the Tortuguero National Park. They are focused on the respect, protection and conservation of the environment and of the flora and fauna of the area. Both feature rooms with private bath, hot water and fans. They have authentic Caribbean style, painted with bright colors that identify the culture of the area and lush gardens.

We had a fantastic time. We were especially impressed with our guides at Tortuguero Village. I think it was Eric? who took us on the most amazing tour of the village in which we saw everything from spider monkeys to medicinal plants. I never imagined that a simple walk around a small village would be so mind-blowing. Then our guide Abel who took us out in the canoe, and later on foot through the jungle was also really good. We saw so much, and he is a nice relaxed and interesting person as well. My number one tip is to bring cash with you to Tortuguero village. Only a few places take cards, so you will be buying food, drinks, tips, handicrafts, etc. all with cash. We were really limited because we hadn't brought much cash with us.

Tortuguero is beautiful. The town is lovely, the boat and canoe trip in the river and the walk through the National Park is wonderful, with a good number of animal sightings. The hotel is comfortable. Our guide Isaac on the canoe was especially knowledgable.

That said, the transport is not well organised at all for those that are not rafting. This company organises rafting, as well as onward transport to La Fortuna, San Jose and Puerto Viejo. They have a 'centre' at Siquirres, right by the rafting. Whether or not it makes sense for your trip, they bring everyone from San Jose to this centre and then you board another bus to Tortuguero. Same when you're coming back from Tortuguero. İt means you drive the complete wrong direction, wait for people to finish rafting, wait over an hour at this centre where they tell you lunch is USD10, then get on another bus to go back towards San Jose.

İf you don't want this trip to steal at least 2 hours of your life each way, I suggest you seek a different company with actual direct transport to Tortuguero.
