Traveller (65)
Room & Suite (14)
Pool & Beach (3)


El Tucan Jungle Lodge is a paradise for bird lovers and people who want to enjoy the tropical flora and fauna in a relaxed atmosphere What makes us different from other accommodation that is close proximity to nature: The bungalows are surrounded by jungle and sloths, toucans, iguanas and colorful butterflies can often be detected even from the hammock. We offer stylish living in wooden bungalows on the banks of the Rio Cano Negro surrounded by the unparalleled serenity of nature. Our cozy rooms (4m x 4m) are equipped with one or two double beds, equipped with ceiling fan, mosquito net and private bathroom and have a spacious terrace with hammock, table and chairs and views of the river. Our "El Tucan Jungle Lodge" located in Cocles - 4 km away from Puerto Viejo - and is 1 km off the main road. The 2-hectare site and its surroundings are ideal for walking and exploring, where you can discover howler monkeys, parrots, river turtles and colorful frogs. But the "civilization" is within reach: Of all the rooms have Wi-Fi access. A well stocked supermarket is 1 km away and several restaurants are within 1-2 km. For guests who are not traveling by car, Bike hire (U.S. $ 5 per day) available. There is a regular bus service to the surrounding area and to San Jose. In addition, we can at any time call a taxi. The beach is reached by bike in a few minutes. We are at your disposal for further information available.

A place to enjoy nature at its finest. Great host great nature, not for city folks or people afraid of nature. Lots of creatures to entertain you. Highly recommend. Close to town and beach but far enough to enjoy peace of mind

We stayed in one of the bungalows and it was simply amazing. Wildlife right outside every day and night...doesn’t get much more jungle-real than this. If you done like insects, stay home...if you do and want to be close to nature (birds, monkeys, sloths, and yes insects) then

Really lovely clean comfortable place surrounded by nature, Irene pointed out the tree frog one evening which was wonderful. For some reason one of the sloughs liked outside our lodge in a smaller tree so great sightings. Breakfast was great with fresh eggs,warm bread and

This gem of a lodge sits within grounds that were once cleared for cocoa growing, but are now rapidly being reclaimed by the jungle. The surrounding area is therefore rich in wildlife. We stayed here for 3 nights in late November and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

"All lodges are close to each other and surrounded by forest, so there is little difference between them."
"It really doesn't matter much, every room is great."
"the 4 rooms are identical and all are in the jungle."
"Any room is great."
"I believe there are only 6 cabinas to choose from. We stayed in #2 and had no problems. Just be aware that they are open air cabinas and it does get humid and can be nearly impossible to dry clothes- so bring extras. But despite the humidity it is WELL WORTH it for the experience of being in a living, breathing, SINGING jungle!"
