Fodor's Expert Review Manatus Hotel

Across river, about 1 km (½ mile) north of village, Tortuguero, Limón, 70205, Costa Rica

Amenities such as air-conditioning, satellite television, fitness centers, and spa treatments are typically not found in Tortuguero, but one of the area's most luxurious hotels has them all. Bright rooms with large windows each have two four-poster queen-size beds with flowered quilted spreads, all under vaulted ceilings. Packages include round-trip van and boat transportation from San José, as well as all meals in the snazzy riverside restaurant.
