A charming little jewel in the heart of Tortuguero. Located right by the National Park & just 250m from the famous turtle-nesting beach. We have 5 rooms with fan, private bathroom, hot water & housekeeping. All rooms open onto an outside porch with chairs and hammocks to relax in our private tropical garden. We also have 3 rooms in a private apartment with fans, shared bathroom, hot water, housekeeping & private balcony with hammock and seating. Great for friends, couples and solo adventurers.

The space

Single or twin room in our rustic Caribbean paradise. The communal area downstairs has more hammocks & comfy seating, board games and books to enjoy as well as free coffee and filtered ice-cold water. Wifi throughout the property. Stay still for long enough and you’ll notice that being this close to the national park draws a few visitors to our garden. Butterflies and hummingbirds feed on the heliconia and rabo de zorro plants, macaws, parrots, tanagers and kiskadees flit overhead and through the trees, river crabs, frogs & toads come out in the rain. Completing our family are the two cats Mietze and Tilicho and the tiny kitten Macarela.

Guest access

For your comfort we have a communal area with traditional hammocks, giving guests a typically cool and Caribbean environment to relax in. There are board games, books and comfy seating to chill and spot birds in our lush garden. Complimentary coffee and filtered water available in the communal area from 08.00 to 18.00 (often earlier as we like to rise with the sun!) Free luggage storage and wifi for all guests. Information on local activities available here. Although there is no shared kitchen available we can offer plates/cutlery and use of the fridge/freezer if needed. This room also has access to a private balcony with an extra hammock to chill in.

Our stay at the cabinas was great. We had a few issues the first night but the hosts were happy to move us to another room. The breakfast was good but small. Also the photo of the room shown here is not the room we got. But we had a good sleep anyways. The staff was super friendly. Would recommend staying here!

A great stay very suitable and cheap for a short time, excellent hosts, who are very open, friendly and helpful at any matter, small room, quite loud in the evenings / nights but it was to be expected :-) Great garden, free water and coffee during the day, the beach is close. Thanks a lot!
