Fodor's Review

This is the prettiest of Tortuguero's lodges, but not the costliest—the owners here market competitively and keep prices reasonable. Each almond-wood cabina in the lush, well-manicured gardens contains four guest rooms with high ceilings, king-size beds, and bamboo furniture. The stunning pool is shaped like a giant sea turtle: the head is a whirlpool tub, the left paw is a wading pool, and the right paw is equipped for swimmers with disabilities. There is no cross-river transportation into town. Package deals include transport from San José, a jungle tour, and all meals. Rates begin at $229 per person.

Luxury in the Jungle

The Pachira Lodge offers travelers a real eco tourism experience. To reach the lodge requires a 45 minute boat ride through beautiful waters filled with exotic creatures. The lodge features comfortable individual cabins in a true jungle setting. The lodge offers travelers many local trips, including boat rides along the river (great for wildlife photographers). Additionally, the lodge provides excellent food in the form of buffets. Tourists should

spend al least two night here to sample the unique setting and tours.
