We enjoyed being away from town in this lodge but I agree you do have to bear in mind the cost to and from town by boat and a little bit of hanging around for a boat. That said we loved having the pool to cool off in and my 2 teenage boys enjoyed the kayaks for a bit of exploring.There were tree frogs and "blue jeans" frogs and a tarantula visible daily 3-4metres from our room! Food was typically Costa Rican, generous, with good service. The room for 4 of us was smaller than elsewhere in CR and a bit dark. The separate cabins looked nicer if there are only 2 of you.
We used Abel Dioz Bonge as our guide who was charming, knowledgeable and fun- Tortugueroguide@mail.com or abelDioz1978@Hotmail.com- we saw much more with a guide on canoe and on foot than we would otherwise have done.
