Pacuare Reserve Lodge:

The beautiful and well constructed Lodge overlooks the beach and a freshwater lagoon which opens on to the main Tortuguero canal. The lodge sleeps six comfortably in a large double bedroom with adjoining bathroom, two twin-bedded rooms and a large living room/kitchen with plenty of space to cook, eat and relax.

The 75 square metre verandah is ideal for dining or simply lounging in a hammock, fanned by the on-shore breeze.

There is an optional mail service and cook. There is no electricity — this is the jungle after all!! Light comes form candles and storm lamps but there is gas for cooking and refrigeration. There is also communication with the outside by cellular phone.

How to get there:

Transport from San José can be arranged. Access to the reserve is by road to Matina, two and a half hours along the San José — Limón highway. Then a 30 minute drive through banana plantations to the Tortuguero canal where a boat will collect visitors for the 20 minute trip to the reserve. Visitors can also drive as far as the canal where their vehicle can be safely left for the duration of their stay. Alternatively, there is a direct bus from San José to Matina where visitors will be met by reserve staff.
