We stayed at the Pachira for a couple of nights - part of a tour - the tour was fantastic - really enjoyable. Whilst the surrondings were really lovely (back to nature) I am not sure I could have stayed any more nights. The food was a bit samey but pefectly good food. The rooms were a bit too basic...

We wound up at the Pachira Lodge on a Caravan tour of Costa Rica. Our individual cabins were clean, moist, (very moist) and simple. The lighting was quite poor making reading inside impossible.The windows are screened but not glazed so the Howler monkeys living above in the dense forest serve at natural alarms. One night during a storm, they were...

If you are expecting 5 star hotel, this place is not for you. BUT if you are looking to stay somewhere as close as you can to Mother Nature and enjoy the minimum of civilized word- you will love this lodge. We traveled with tour, so I didn't book it myself, but LOVED these 2 nights stay in this inside...

I stayed at Pachira for 3 days and have to say I was not too impressed. The room I had was pretty big, which would have been nice if I was traveling with someone else, but was not that nice. There were 2 beds, both of which had broken springs poking out through the mattress and sheet. The bathroom was...

Beautiful rustic hotel in the middle of the jungle. Lovely gardens, rustic accommodations with buffet food. Limited menu. Embarcation and disembarcation from the mainland is rough going. A lot of mud when it rains which is most of the time. The town of Tortuguero is worth seeing but don't expect luxury. The best thing about the trip and for all...

We felt as though we had stepped back in time staying at this great lodge. The rooms are very bare, with no air conditioning, tv or telephones. The windows only have screens, no glass. We didn't need an alarm clock, because the holler monkeys took care of this. We really didn't know what to expect when we took this trip,...

Spent 2 nights here. The rooms/cabins are quite basic but clean. Unfortunately ours didn't have a room safe but others did. There's no glass in the windows only mosquito mesh so you can enjoy the jungle type sounds - howler monkeys, birds, all the time. There's coffee, tea and water available outside the restaurant most of the day. The restaurant...

a large wood panelled room, had a warm feel , no tv or coffee machine , which was fine by me.Well organised buffet style meals , food quality was reasonable, but the times available for meals were a bit limited and staff tended to clear the buffet away too quickly, so if you were a bit late choice was restricted...

Between the boat rides to and from the lodge and the various canal safaris, you spend a lot of time on the water here, and that is part of the charm of this place. You really do feel as though you have escaped from the world, especially out on the water looking for wildlife, and yet all the essential comforts...

Torteguero is a funny old place. You are fairly limited on lodging options due to the boat access but if you end up at Pachira Lodge you will have a great time. It is well place opposite Torteguero village and in close proximity to all the waterways you need to be taken down on the boat safaris. The lodge rooms...
