Mawamba Lodge


Tortuguero (Tortuguero, Costa Rica)


Mawamba is nestled on a sand bar between the Caribbean Sea and one of the Tortuguero canals, an excellent location that provides direct access to the pristine beach and canals.


The small town of Tortuguero is a short walk away and shared canal excursions are included to view the wildlife in the area.


The 36 rooms are basic and simply furnished but all feature private bathroom, hot water and ceiling fans. Accommodation is full board; meals are buffet style (drinks not included).

When to go

Green turtles nest along the beaches of Tortuguero from July to October. The less common Baula and Loggerhead turtles nest from December to April/May.

Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteThere was nothing wrong with Mawamba, but the activity groups were too big for us (between 25 and 30 people for each hike or boat ride) and we didn't like being on such a strict schedule.Close Quote - E&CU (July 2010)
