Miss Junie's is more expensive than the other restaurants we tried on the island, but we thought it was worth it for a nice meal our last night in town. The dining room is wood paneled and open to the air and ocean breezes. We stayed at the lodge so we enjoyed gallo pinto cooked with coconut milk each morning. Yum! Dinner was also very good, served in a relaxed atmosphere. At dinner we saw a woman in the kitchen who resembled the portrait of Miss Junie hanging in the dining room. Perhaps we ate food prepared by the owner herself.

This is a very sweet, homey, immaculate place. The staff takes a personal interest. In the kitchen, there is home cooking. It is truly a home away from home.

You have to go to the end of the village to find this restaurant, through the park bordering their lodge. It’s somewhat gloomy and old style inside but the food, freshly
cooked, is fabulously tasty. The sauces are stunning. Best Caribbean home cooking in Tortuguero.

Thank you Cloied for the two fantastic and unforgetable tours. Cloied is born in tortuguero and nows everything! He is a wonderful guide. The lodge is nice and very well located with good food.

I have reviewed the hotel already, but Cloied deserves a review of his own- Pura Vida! We did three trips with him - canoe wildlife tour, canoe birdwatching tour and night walk and all three were excellent. I swear that he has superhero vision to be able to see a raccoon hiding high in a coconut tree or a toucan resting briefly high in a tree. He is knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and someone who goes the extra mile to give you a great experience.
He is also a star of the film at the turtle conservation centre!
Whatever you do, seek ou Cloied!
