Only good things to say about this experience! Our guide, Ana Maria, was knowledgeable and very pleasant and accommodating. Tortuguero National Park was the Costa Rica that we wanted to see - toucans, egrets, herons, caimans, three kinds of monkey, iguanas, lizards. We enjoyed the boat rides. The guides were able to locate many types of wildlife for us to see and photograph. The local land iguana met us at the dock.
Food at the lodge was excellent and plentiful. Our cabin was rustic and very comfortable at the same time. The property is really beautiful - manicured and lush. I hope we have the opportunity to return here.
Our stay here was part of a package deal so I can't comment on the cost or value.
