If you're going to Laguna Lodge to be close to nature, it's wonderful. The grounds themselves have a butterfly garden, frog habitat, geckos, and bats that cling to the inside of one area in the "welcome center." With the river on one side and the coastline on the other of the property, you see shorebirds, wading birds, and other tropical...

We hadn't quite been sure what to expect, but this was a wonderful trip. Yuri picked us up early at our hotel in San Jose and drove us to a nice restaurant for breakfast -- there's a butterfly garden in the back yard of the restaurant -- don't miss it! I'll review that place separately. We were supposed to have...

Way too over priced for what you actually get, absolutely nothing to do, and the "tour guides" are everything but tour guides. First, I paid way to much to be basically camping, and sharing a room with a friend we literally paid 350 dollars for the worlds worst hotel/nightmare. We have been studying in Costa Rica for 6 weeks and...

I stayed at Laguna Lodge with Caravan. Tortuguero was a highlight of the trip, so much so I am going again in December, before Caravan takes Tortuguero off their itinerary in 2014. Laguna Lodge has a great location, on a slice of land between the main canal and the beach. You can even walk to town from the lodge. Because...

The positives- they have red eyed tree frogs on the property, theycome out at 5.30 pm, in may. there are nesting montezuma orependulas on the property. i have never been able to observe these birds at such close proximity anywhere else. Boat trips were pretty good, in nearby preserves. There are apparently no ac in tortuguero due to ecological reasons....

This is a very basic lodge. There are rustic cabins with rocking chairs on the porches and the grounds are pleasant with trees, flowers and animal life. There is a swimming pool. Be careful in the bathroom. There is a step down into the shower. Plus, the humidity is such that the floor may not be completely dry from the...

Our visit to Tortuguero and the Laguna Lodge was part of a vacation planned by Anywhere Costa Rica (see the seperate review of ACR). My best advice is, if you are insistent on seeing the Caribbean side of Costa Rica consider flying to Tortuguero! The Laguna Lodge is right near to the airstrip and all incoming/outgoing aircraft pass, very loudly,...

Tortuguero beach is the most important nesting site of the endangered green turtle in the Western Hemisphere. Giant leatherback, hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles also nest here. The...

My parents and I spent 3 nights there and enjoyed the whole experience greatly. I remember how charming it was canal boating... The hotel has a rustic feeling about it but it is nice and clean, comfortable and the food is very good. You can find some monkeys, racoons, birds and other animals in the communal areas and beautiful plants....

The Laguna Lodge is not the Ritz Carlton Resort. That should be obvious, but seems in some of the other reviews there may be an expectation problem, so just want to get that put there! What it is, is a clean and comfortable rustic lodge, located in the middle of a spectacular natural area. We stayed two nights at the...

My husband and I stayed at Laguna Lodge as part of a Caravan tour of Costa Rica. The rustic cabins of the Lodge sit on the river in the front and the Caribbean in the rear. The cabins were spartan, but clean offering two beds, a dresser, and a bath with a shower. There is no air conditioning, just plenty...
