Had the best time here. As I was in Costa Rica on business, I only has the weekend to enjoy the country. With the Turtle Beach Lodge, I really felt like they did everything they could to plan my time efficiently and yet make me feel welcome and relaxed.
I booked a weekend package, which really was extremely well spent. They picked me up in San José, drove across the country (including a quick banana plantation visit) and then - as mentioned before - required me and my co-travellers to board a boat because the Lodge has no access to streets. Extremely cool, that already the trip there was spectacular. We stopped over in Tortuguero Town, where I bought the nicest souvenirs.
When me arrived at the Lodge, we were greeted with a drink and then check in was without problem. The Lodge I had was basic, but exactly what you would expect. The team kept me busy all day anyways. After arrival, there was an amazing jungle tour through the deepest mud, after which I had some time to enjoy the pool. At night, we were taken to Tortuguero again to see the Turtles lay their eggs. Not sure what was more memorable - driving with the boat at high velocity through the jungle at night to get to town, or then seeing the majestic turtles actually come out of the sea and lay eggs.
Night was short (also because the lodges have no windows and the monkeys actually do scream), as there was another tour at 5am, seeing the jungle wake up. Like everything else, amazing.
When I went home at late morning / mid day, I was so happy I had done this visit. Next time, definitively would make more sense to spend more time here, but for what I had, I feel like everybody was only concerned about making my weekend the best ever and managing it as efficiently as possible.
