Great folks, lovely place, tasty food, fine service. Want to return as soon as possible!
A great place to stay when in Tortuguero. Don’t forget your camera(s). Take all of the ‘free’ tours on offer and go zip-lining but you’ll get even more out of your trip if you go on the Lodge trail walk on your own both during the day and at night (take a torch and ideally some headtorches). Don’t worry the trail is paved. Due to the way Tortuguero works, it’s all a bit regimented but enjoyable nonetheless. Staying 3 nights will give you the freedom to do more on your own on your second full day when we would recommend organising a ‘private’ (join up with another couple to split the cost) early morning canoe tour with Castor Hunter. Although we did some paddling, for most of the tour we were driven along absolutely quietly by his electric motor boat engine. This is definitely the best way to see wildlife in Tortuguero. Castor has been guiding for 48 years and his father was the first person to take visitors out to show them the canals and wildlife. He spent his childhood camping in the jungle with his father learning about all the flora and fauna and escaping snakes and bugs in their tents. The food was quite good and the Lodge was extremely helpful in organising extra-curricular activities and arranging for our meals to be re-timed outside the norm.
Jorge was our guide and he is FANTASTIC! Our favorite part of the trip for sure!
