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

Double room (with additional single bed) & private bathroom 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.

Small hotel. New owners, very friendly and helpful. They are refurbishing the rooms one by one, our room was an old one, was OK but in need of a refurb. Very central in the town, lovely garden, peaceful. Internet very slow, breakfast is reserved the night before for $5. Overall a good experience.

Our experience in Tortuguero, especially Cabinas Tortuguero, was wonderful. The owner and everyone who works there are kind people that make it a lovely place to stay. Don't miss out the freshly baked breakfast bread! Tortuguero is a bit remote and I do believe this is the best place you can stay, but there are a few improvements - like an extension cord in the room (the only one is halfway up the wall so it's hard to charge your phone) and maybe tea as an alternative to the (awesome) all day coffee.
