    Very helpful people! I read not to book tours through them on TripAdvisor, and did it elsewhere. Anyway they were supportive to arrange transport to tours of others. The meals are tasty and not overpriced for Tortuguero.

    As it is not central, you have extra costs for water taxi.

    As from the first contact in advance from our arrival, we felt assured that we were in good hands. Factual arrival information regarding the needed ferry, and a personal welcome at the quay that guided us to the small family-hotel. A basic setting, with nevertheless all comfort available that you may expect. Gerardo and his colleagues did everything they could to make our stay memorable. With valued tips, supplemented with some personal stories from his lifetime experience in the park, Gerardo helped us making plans for the days to come. The whole setting was simple, but extremely relaxed. The location which is slightly further away from the crowded, bigger lodges added to that. After some local food prepared with care by Victor, we decided twice to stay on the deck next to the river and enjoy the evening calmness around us. We also made a great tour in the small motorboat of the hotel, which allowed us to explore also the more narrow waterways in the park. Overall a very nice stay which gave us the feeling that we got the real, personal Tortuguero experience.

    It’s one of the furthest places from the main town so if you like a quite place, this could be for you. This also means that taking a a taxi boat to town can run upto $10 pp.

    We booked an aircon room which was located on the top floor. The room was only approx 2,5 x2,5m and had a reclining roof. The room was extremely hot and quite smelly. We were very disappointed and asked to change to a groundfloor, room which is larger and less hot. Positive side is that they gave us back the price difference. We read form other reviews that the people running the guesthouse are very friendly. However, we found the owner quite grumpy possibly because we did not book a tour with him. He offers a boat tour to the NP starting at 8am (because it rains before 8 am??) while anywhere else in Costa Rica you hear that the early morning tours are the best ones for seeing wildlife. In town you can book tours starting at 6am. We found Costa Rica rather expensive but the price/quality ratio of hotels in Tourtuguera (looking at many options through booking.com) is even worse.
