Turtle Beach Lodge, Tortuguero
Very Good8.0
The hotel is definitely rustic for 5 star standards; however, one must remember this is a very remote location. It takes two buses and river taxi to get there; however, check with the hotel because they usually arrange their river transportation to pick you up in La Pavona or their bus to pick you up in Guapiles and then to La Pavona for their boat. You cannot drive directly to the hotel but this is part of the experience of going to Tortuguero. They were very nice and all meals are included along with river tour, jungle tour, and sea turtle conservancy if you wish. The hotel assigns a guide to be with you for the entire stay. We arrived a day after a Nat Geo tour arrived and we were added to that group. Our guide Kenneth was extremely knowledgeable and even assisted us in arranging transportation to our next destination; something I was assured the hotel could assist us with but the language barrier was difficult. Kenneth stepped in assisted with the reservations and saved the day! I would not recommend going to Tortuguero if you are finicky, demand luxury or air conditioning; however, if you want to enjoy the beauty complete with howler monkeys waking you up, this is the place to stay.
