Nine days in Tortuguero

Pros: Clean, friendly staff
Cons: There were a couple of soccer games I missed because there is no TV. No biggie
Location: Located on the beach, one of the nicer places to stay. Close to the National Park, Conservation Museum and Turtle watching when in season.
Stayed in Tortuguero for 9 days. I had been there before, but it was a quick trip and couldn't do much. So I decided to stay longer this time. I took a canoe trip in the National Park and got to see so many kinds of animal. I got lucky! I also visited the Conservation of Turtle Museum, it was great. Walked in the pouring rain which was awesome. In California we don't get much rain. Hung out with the locals, listened to Reggae and ate at all the restaurants. The hotel has hammocks available for the guest facing the ocean. Hearing the waves crash while on the hammocks was so relaxing. The hotel also has a pool but it's located on their other property, which isn't to far away.There are many other activities to do such as kayaking, zip lines, fishing and in season Turtle watching. Just ask the hotels staff and they will help you with all your activity needs. Overall I had an awesome trip.
