Tortuguero National Park, Cahuita Reviews

  • This place is very annoying to get to if you are going alone but it is worth every moment of traveling. I did a canoe.tour through the national park for $20 it was pouring rain most of our trip but it was absolutely fantastic. We saw so much wildlife and it really felt removed from everything. Our tour guide was amazing and a lot of fun and I really felt the tour was worth every penny spent.

  • My trip to Tortuguero was surprisingly nice. First day got blessed with sunny warm weather, where I took advantage of the beach. Second day, despite the rain, we went on the kayak tour in the park. It's an amazingly dense jungle, with many animals around. We saw a cayman and many birds. The island is very small, not much to do here for more than 2 days, especially when it's not the turtle season. Prices are decent compared to many touristic spots I've been in Costa Rica. Interesting, one of the evenings I fell asleep for a few minutes on the beach, to wake and find my phone missing. Gave a tip to a local to "find" it for me :)

  • Food was great, as were the employees and most of the facilities, but the rooms were too rustic and very hot. Only 1 ceiling fan in a room with screened windows and no glass. We spent most of our time by the pool and lounging in the public area which was much nicer than the rooms. Much too humid on the east coast to not have A/C for sleeping. The trip to get there was pretty bad too. The place where you catch a boat to go there was terrible. And Costa Rica was much more expensive than when we went last time. I paid more for street vendor items than I would at the store back home. And they weren't willing to haggle like last time. It's beautiful, but just not the same as we remembered. Much better than Mexico, though.

  • Great park, only accessible by boat. No cars in the village. The canoe tours are great. You see a lot of animals. However 2 nights are enough, to see the most part of the park

  • However it is incredibly hot and humid here. I couldn't do it a second time. First was so good it didn't matter.
