recently a friend and I stayed at the pachira lodge in tortuguero.
getting there was an adventure. enroute to the lodge we stopped for lunch, and spotted two sloths kicking back on a tree. that was cool. then we sped along the river by boat to the lodge. best to keep camera eguipment in a bag, as a few drops of water danced across my lens.
the hotel itself is rustic yet cozy, and situated right on the canal. the staff was attentive and served us welcome drinks upon arrival. the rooms do not have air conditioning, but was told that is the norm for the area. a light breeze and the deck adjacent to the room helped so the heat was not an issue. I enjoyed the buffet menu, although I am selective when it comes to deserts. the second day in the we woke up before sunrise and went on a tour through the canals, and saw many types of birds, iguanas, and crocs. all in all had a great time, although I want to go back sometime when the turtles are nesting.
