Eco Lodge with Full Meal Plan, Set in the Nature Enthusiasts' Paradise.
The visit to Tortuguero starts with a coach pick up from your San Jose hotel; you drive through the stunning Braulio Carrillo National Park, stopping for a traditional Costa Rican breakfast, and then on to the Caribbean canals of Tortuguero! Glide through the canals by boat to arrive at Aninga Lodge, where you will be greeted with a buffet lunch.
Aninga has 32 clean, simple and comfortable bungalows scattered across the grounds through winding trails surrounded by the beautiful rainforest. This is a great hotel if you are looking for a no frills, wildlife experience. All the rooms come with one double bed, one single bed (max 4 people) and an en-suite bathroom. There are no TVs, nor air conditioning at Pachira. All buffet meals are included in your stay.
Tortuguero has a variety of different habitats such as rain forest, mangroves, lagoons, swamps and beaches, giving you the opportunity to view sloths, dart frogs, monkeys, caymans, crocodiles, and over 300 different types of birds! This is also a great place to go sport fishing for Tarpon and Snook!
Included in your stay is a visit to the town of Tortuguero, Turtle Museum, water canals and Tortuguero National Park. The guides are incredibly friendly with a wealth of information to share with you. You may wish to include the Turtle Nesting tour at a rate of $30pp (Turtle season is July – October). This is a great way to watch Green Sea Turtles lay their eggs or see the newborn turtles hatch and make their way down the beach to the ocean.
While staying at Pachira, enjoy their amenities such as the swimming pool, spa treatments, bar area and live music. WiFi internet is available in the reception area of the hotel only.
