The tours were very informative and the staff was out of this world. This is not a hotel for you 5 start people, but if you love great service and being close to nature this is the place to go.

The lodge was decent. But it's in the middle of the jungle so what do you expect. The rooms are very old and rustic. No glass on the windows, so you will hear everything, especially if you're a lite sleeper like me. The food was basic, limited choices. The town wasn't much to look at and not much to do.... More

Our family visited this lodge in October of 2006. Our stay was very memorable from the people we met, the wonderful local cuisine, the wildlife, the sun, to the friendly staff and tour guides. We couldn't have asked for a better experience at the lodge. The Jungle Lodge is the best way to get the full experience, and out of... More

We spent three days and two nights in the jungle just across the river from the village of Tortuguero . We took a bus from San Jose to the drop off point by the river where a boat picked us up for the 2 hour trip to the Jungle Lodge. The last part of the road was all rocks and... More

Our welcome to the Jungle Lodge was our tour guide telling us of previous groups catching a very severe dose of Montezuma's revenge and to not drink the water, not even the ice. We stopped to buy bottled water at a grocery store. We were also told to ask about the Butterfly Farm as it was a part of our... More

We just returned from a wonderful two week stay at Jungle Lodge. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was good and the location was incredible. The rooms are basic with a bathroom, but clean. We took guided tours on the canals, lagoon and rainforest with knowledgeable guides and followed it up with self guided canoe tours. All costs... More

I really enjoyed staying at the Jungle Lodge. If you came to this place to see animals, you will not be disappointed. My room was very clean and had a double and a twin in it. Our ceiling fan (no A/C) was not working very well, and when I asked the maid about it, she tried to fix it. When... More

We spent 3 nights at The Jungle Lodge in Tortuguero during January 2006. We knew the lodge was rustic and we aren't 5 star resort people but we were not prepared for how horrible this hotel was.

This was a nice lodge. The rooms were very clean, it is a long trip if you are coming from San Jose I would suggest the 2 night instead of the one night. Great place for Birders and animal lovers saw many species of birds in addition to Monkeys, Caimen, etc... The food was average and is served buffet style.... More
