As suggested previously, this lodging very much feels like a conveyor belt holiday. Lot in, lot out: an exercise in logistics. However, the setting is amazing in beautifully colouring and biologically diverse secondary rainforest. The first morning I (and probably everyone else) was awoken by...More
The lodge was basic, as expected, what was not expected was to be part of a herd and ordered around so much. Wait there, no there, eat at 7 - 1 - 7 (or go hungry) sit where you're told, unless you're told to move.......More
The only access to Tortuguero is via a sea plane or a boat from Canyo Blanco Pier. It takes about and hour and a half from the pier to Pachira along the main canal. At Pachira's jetty there is a bar and swimming pool and...More
Our tour details did state that rooms are basic and fan cooled, but our room was perfectly adequate (although there are no windows, only mesh covering the openings!).
The small town of Tortuguero survives on tourists, so beware, though you're not pestered at all.

There were security walking around at night, must admit the place felt very safe, only way to get there is by boat. there is a safe in your room for valuables. Guess like any trip you just have to be careful and attentive. Wonderful place to visit, lots of wild life and very close to nature. Staff at resort are very friendly and helpful. Enjoy your trip.

Sorry, just saw this. No. Pachira lodge plans all of your activities. It's all inclusive and because of the remote nature of the trip, they plan everything. You can do zips or other activities during free time, but I'd recommend zipping in another CRan town. This is quite a unique experience and with all the activities they had, I chose to lounge by the pool and read.
