What a perfect location. Town is just across the river and the ocean is just down river. The cabins are tucked into the jungle to shade them from the sun and the wildlife is right there. We saw more wildlife around the lodge than anywhere else on our trip. The fishing was great, you can stand on the dock and catch smaller fish in the river or go with Jeff on their fishing boat out to the ocean. The ocean was full of life and we saw tarpon rising all around the boat. The boat was very comfortable and had lots of room. The cabins were comfortable and Jeff and Sue are great hosts. This was the highlight of our trip
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer nightly and long-term stays and also fishing packages (we owned & operated a fishing lodge in Canada's remote north for 18 years), and can arrange travel to Tortuguero from San Jose, as well as jungle and turtle tours with local guides. We are two minutes from the village centre yet completely removed from the hustle of village life. We offer a true jungle experience. We have a small yoga studio (the only one in Tortuguero), and a canoe to borrow (and which we use, with motor, for fully-guided river tours/fishing on a budget). ... more less
