Tortuguero (Tortuguero, Costa Rica)
Small, friendly lodge on the edge of the river. Cabanas are set around the gardens and they have a medium-sized pool, good restaurant (all meals included in your stay) and games room.
2 tours are included in a 2 night stay - on arrival you have a tour of the nearby village of Tortuguero and the following day a canoe trip along the Tortuguero canals to see wildlife. Optional tours, including turtle nesting tours in season, can be arranged locally. There are kayaks and pedal boats to use on the river.
There are 12 cabanas. All have 2 queen size beds, ensuite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor shower, airconditioning, ceiling fan, screened windows, small porch, minibar and TV.
The smallest comfortable lodge in the area.
When to go
All year round but January-March can be busy. For the opportunity to see Green turtles laying their eggs you should visit from June to October.
