A very good place to stay. La Casona is located in the village, very near the National Park and the sea. The atmosphere is very quiet and relaxing. We loved the common areas decoration and the garden. Beds are confortable. Ed is a very nice and professional biologist who will make you discover nature and animals as never you did....

La Casona is a great place to stay in the charming village of Tortuguero. The rooms are cost-effective, with an inside garden and a comfortable community area where you can eat or just lay in hammock. It is very close (1 minute) to the seashore. Local guide Ed and his colleague offer interesting programmes like tour in the rainforest, night-tour...

La Casona is a great small hotel with backpacker atmosphere. We were picked up at the main Tortuguero dock which was nice. After arriving, the reception gave us a bedroom with 2 single beds but we had reserved a double room. We complained and they changed us to a 5 person room which was quite nice as we were only...

Dear Laure, Thank you very much for taking us into account and for writing to us. We regret that you had that accident with the shower, the electrical appliances should not be manipulated when one is wet. As you say, the receptionist is not the one who fixes that, he did what was right, that was to give you another...

La Casona is one of many small guest accommodations in Tortuguero, but it has to be the friendliest, most accommodating and welcoming. Cabins are set around a garden and a central dining place...privacy, but with company of other guests when you choose. Jennifer made us lovely breakfasts with good coffee. Perhaps the greatest joy for us, a father and two...

I was greeted by the owner of the hostal, she was really accommodating and helped me with all my needs, she organised the tours for me (the night tour is a must) and also helped me to the laundry. The shared kitchen is really well equipped! The dormitory was really comfortable, with a loads...
