We stayed over Christmas 2013 for 4 days and had a wonderful experience. Marco was our designated guide for the trip and we had two other wonderful families in our group. Marco was passionate about nature and we learnt a lot from him. This resort is truly in the middle of a dense jungle and will take you back in time. Beautiful grounds,basic but more than adequate rooms, steps from the jungle and the beach. Food was freshly cooked and tasty but with limited variety. The night trip by boat was fabulous.I won't give the details so as to not spoil your surprise. Skip the zip line tour in the area. Take the additional boat trips and go with your guide kayaking to the lagoon. Enjoy an experience of a lifetime.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The area of Tortuguero is rightfully called The Amazon of Costa Rica because access is only by boat on Jungle Rivers. Turtle Beach Lodge, 5 miles north of the town of Tortuguero, is a secluded resort spanning 175 acres with miles of jungle trails, a meandering private canal, and a half mile of beach adjoining still more isolated beaches. The lodge accommodates approximately 80 guests; assisted by a well trained staff and guides who ease you into an exciting jungle experience. Stay in the beautifully landscaped cabinas, swim in our turtle shaped pool, relax in the adjacent shady hammock hut with food and drink from the restaurant and bar. ... more less
