nice hidden lodge with direct access to the turtle beach, don't expect to see turtles unless you are travelling in october/november, the beach is no real bathing beach,
but nice to have both the jungle and the beach just in one place. you have to know that staying an a place like this means contact with animals/insects etc., it is a part of the experience, you get to see monkeys, birds, chameleons, lizards, frogs, bats and many ants. The boat as well as the jungle walking tour are a must do and included in the packages, even if you stay just 1 night. The food is ok and all meals are included. You even get breakfast on the way to and lunch on the way back, the shuttle is included and drops you off even as far as at the airport!
If you want the best tour, look/ask for FERNANDO, best guide ever!!
- 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
