Mawamba versus Turtle Beach Lodge ( sorry for the last post)

Any suggestions as to which one is better and less touristy. What are the advantages of staying at Mawamba? Are the tours better? And what about the food, rooms...etc....

Regards

I like better Mawamba...one of the most traditional lodges in Tortuguero...food is OK ...nice setting and rooms for a middle of nowhere in the jungle!

Owner Mauricio is a great hard working person...as well as his kids!

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

I´ve been to both, and if your looking for less touristy and a jungle environment you need to stay at Turtle Beach. Both lodges are comparable as far as the rooms and tours. Turtle Beach has better food and miles of untouched jungle and beach. If you are interested in spending more time in the town of Tortuguero stay at Mawamaba as it is much closer to town and you can even walk there.
