    I had a really fantastic time at the lodge, from relaxing to volleyball to games nights. They have a really amazing establishment and great volunteers that create a fun vibe and are very helpful. My one downfall was that I found everything to be overpriced....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, I am going for a week and was wondering what the food approximately costs, because I need to estimate how much cash I need to bring since there is no ATM.

    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.
