Fantastic place with genuine and nice owner and staff. We where meant to stay two nights but ended up with staying ten. Fish market with everything u need nearby in Puerto Lopez and endless surfing possibilitys on the beach. Just like in the dream of our vacation. We hope we can go back one day.

You have your own little cabaña with your own little hammock in your own little patio, steps from beach and the ocean surf. The main lodge has a covered 2nd floor area great for eating, working on your computer or just observing, surfers by day and the most incredible sunsets by night. This is a very quiet, laid back, idyllic... More

This was not my first time staying at La Tortuga. The owner David is very accommodating to all my needs, and the staff is always on top of everything. The sounds of the waves can be heard from your room, and the upper deck of the restaurant is a great vantage point to watch sunsets. The pool and grill area... More

We had a wonderful three day stay at La Tortuga. We were in one of the $50 suites which are set in a nice quiet and private location a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The room was large, clean and comfortable with a really great bathroom and shower. Outside was a red-brick private patio which was lovely to... More

This was by far the worst place my study group stayed at. My room was infested with spiders and cockroaches. My shower was disgusting. Housekeeping did not clean it the next day at all. The food they had was terrible and the kitchen closed way before it should have and couldn't make me food that I wasn't allergic to. A... More

I stayed in Ayampe for a week & visited here most days. Great wifi & lovely view from upstairs over an amazing beach. Food average, far better places to eat (fishburgers up the other end of the beach are YUM) but nice for an afternoon beer 👍

Pegged right next to the jungle, this spot is amazing for swimming, surfing, sunsets and a few other creative activities. Recommend renting a scooter in Motañita and taking the 30something minute ride through the jungle. Careful - lots of curves and distractions.
