The location is close to the centre of Tortuguero (it's very small anywhere) as well as the beach, which can be seen from the property. The price is very low which is reflected in the quality of the accommodation. The rooms are very cramped and basic, but clean enough. So with everything put together, if you're paying $20 for a...

This was such a lovely place to stay during our travels. The rooms were simple and quite sandy but that is to be expected when staying in a beach village! Communal cooking facilities available 6am-9pm which proved useful for cooking some budget meals and also storing beers in the fridge! Lovely little hammocks for relaxing and reading. It's a stones...

Cabinas Meryscar is located only steps away from the Caribbean Ocean and just a couple minutes walk to the national park entrance and main street. Restaurants in the area open later in the day, so I used the spacious kitchen to make breakfast. I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for an affordable and relaxing place to stay.

The hostel is rather big but not very crowded. The showers are lukewarm, but we didn't miss the hot water very much. We took two dormbeds in a three bed room and one night when a person asked for a dorm bed, the owners wanted to send her away. So we would have got the room for us without having...

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and right from the start we absolutely loved the place. Unlike most places Cabinas Meriscar will ring you a taxi from the bus depo to theirs so there's no confusion about how to arrive. The room we stayed in was large, with plenty of storage facilities which was awesome for us....

20 dollar for a double room with bathroom. A balcony with seaview. If you leave food in the room a colony of ants will invade your room. Also small ants on the bed. Good kitchen. We got a room for 4 people just for the 2 of us. So space enough.

The rooms are okay and cheap. In the kitchen there is everything you need to cook a small meal and the staff is friendly. But both, the room and the kitchen are not very clean. So if you dont mind some sand etc. Its fine for budget travellers although you can find better places for 3 or 4 dollars more...

There is communal kitchen and hammocks to laze in but unfortunately no WIFI or a computer with internet. No food provided which is not big problem as there are...

This place is among most recommended budget places at village, one of the "free tourist agents" took us there from port.
