“remote & rustic”
Reviewed 31 March 2006

Remote & rustic but,that is what we wanted & expected.Only reached by nearly a hours boat ride.The place needs paint & maintence fix up.Sunday,seems to be a off day for tourd,ect.Myself & two friends decided to go fishing.Different experance to fish where the river meets the,Caribbean ocean.The boat would go out into the ocean,turn back toward the river & it was like a funnel for fish.We caught four largefish,plus the one that got away,lure & all.Of course that was the largest.Took the fish backto the lodge.The chief,from Honduras, was happier than we were.Everyone at the lodge had fish.The chief was so proud,he gave us a tour of the kitchen,showing preperation of the sauce for the fish.The chief has a joyful personality.Dispointed on cancelation of the hiking trip to the,hill of,Tortuguero.

Considering that everything is brought in by boat this lodge does a great job.The rooms are not fancy however they are clean and the bed was comfortable.
the tour guide did a good job looking after us and taking us on two great river trips.
The food for a buffet was good.The chef Henry(not sure of his name) was lots of fun,he even danced with my wife to the latin music.

The location and layout of the resort are great ... deep in the coastal rainforest.

However, the rooms are very basic with no amentities to speak of.

The food is good but lacks variety.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The best thing is hearing the Howler Monkeys early in the morning or in the late afternoon.

Great exotic jungle lodge. The tour guides are extremely nice and helpful. Everyone spoke perfect English, and the surroundings are enchanting. The only negative was a lack of airconditioning in your room. In the evening it stays pretty warm.
