Our host was superb, warm, friendly, local, knowledgeable. He took us on a tour into the national park where where we saw sloths, monkeys, lizards, tucans, Cayman.... More

All Rankin's Lodge is an incredible place. It feels remote and relaxing, but is an easy and beautiful 30 minute walk from the middle of Tortuguero. Willis, the owner, is BRILLIANT. He's hilarious, knowledgeable and happy to take you in and out of town, tour the national park and gives you all sorts of tips about the area. The lodge... More

A reasonably priced basic lodge some distance from Tortuguero town. It overlooks the river, has a restaurant and the grounds are well maintained. The cabin was bright and clean with private bathroom bed and fan. The staff were very pleasent although their english was limited. There was one problem when the promised boat to give me a lift back from... More

My husband and I stayed here with a group during our two week tour of Costa Rica. Tortuguero was my favorite place we visited. Willis was absolutely fantastic and sorted out everything. He was extremely laid back and very funny. His tours were great fun but he was also very knowledgeable. We were very lucky seeing huge amounts of wildlife... More

Four of us reserved a two night package through ATEC in Puerto Viejo at the All Rankin's Lodge. We were met at the dock in Moin by Wallis Rankin, captain, guide and host "par excellence"! Wallis is calm, knowledgeable and entertaining. It was raining during the boat ride to Tortuguero, but Wallis would still stop and show us birds, lizards... More

So I wasn't expecting luxury given the remote location, but the beds were incredibly uncomfortable - the mattresses were so thin you could feel every slat beneath you. The rooms needed a little TLC - flaky paint and a couple of friendly cockroaches in the bathroom. Breakfast was not included within the price, but charged at a rate of 5000... More

Willis was the last tour guide we took during our amazing trip to Costa Rica. Before we called him, we heard excellent recommendations and all the words were true! He's very professional and combines it with being a very funny person! The tour we took from Moin to Tortuguero, the stay at the lodge, the food and the place itself... More

We recently stayed at the All Rankin Lodge as part of a tour of Costa Rica and thought the location was amazing. The view from the open dining area is stunning and great for watching wildlife from the hammocks. The rooms here are ok, the beds are pretty uncomfortable but the white sheets are clean. It's a budget place in... More

If you're looking for a fantastic trip to Tortuguero at a great value, look no further than "All Rankin's Tours and Cabinas". We recently traveled to CR with a very loose itinerary, not having any reservations for any adventure. Knowing we wanted to travel up the canal to Tortuguero, we simply drove to the boat docks in Mion hoping to... More
