Well located on the beach, but to be honest you’d be better off staying in big foot down the road. We were attracted to the isolated feel but it makes for kind of hassle and means you can only eat and the overpriced and very...More

When arriving at the place it looks great! Nice central bar, big beach, volleyball, surfing and many hammocks, music. Also the project of saving turtle eggs and releasing them back in the sea is great. However, I am not sure of I would go there...More

Their website will have all of that info. They do offer boards and surfing classes. Search Surfing Turtle Lodge on google. It should come right up. I can't post the link due to Trip Advisor Restrictions.

Hi, the prices are moderate. A meal can cost you between $3 to $10. And the drinks are not expensive either. They serve cocktails too.
