All inclusive package 2 nights 3 days in Tortuguero from San José
"I am so glad we booked this two night/three day tour. My husband and I were the oldest in our group (82 and 75) and we enjoyed ourselves SO much. It wasn't too taxing, even though we are very active, and our tour guide, Francisco, was FANTASTIC. We were the only non-speaking Spanish couple in our group but Francisco made sure we knew exactly what was going on. The hotel, Pachira Lodge, was very nice. You are in the rain forest so it is a little primitive but very comfortable. The food is good although a little repetitive and the staff was very accommodating. The internet in our room was basically non-existent but around the property you could log on. There are no hairdryers or shampoo (just so you know) and there are no windows in the rooms, just screens so not having a/c was perfectly fine because it cools off at night. The howler monkeys roar like lions at 4:30 every morning which was quite an experience. We were only in Costa Rica for six nights and this tour was perfect. The tours that Francisco took us on were very informative and fun. We saw so much in such a short period of time. The bus that took us to and from Tortuguero didn't have great internet service but the ride was informative and well described."..."

Everyone on the island is helpful and there to make your day great. The only heads up I feel guests should know is a lot of things cost extra money. The breakfast is a stop at a cute restaurant on the way to the port that everyone is responsible for their own, and on the island even bottled water and restrooms cost money. Everything is very reasonably priced, but we did not bring enough cash and ended up using credit card to just use the bathroom."..."
