Pachira Lodge is one of the smarter properties in Torguguero, set in lush gardens on the other side of the canal from the beach. Each comfortable room has en suite bathroom, hot water and ceiling fans, and all meals are served as buffets, giving a good choice. Daily inclusive activities are laid on including a wildlife boat ride along the jungle-fringed waterways and a visit to Tortuguero Town, and optional turtle watching tours are run in season. The trip to and from the lodge can be an adventure in itself.
34 acres of grounds, restaurant, bar, turtle-shaped swimming pool,
Sloths, various monkey species, fresh water turtles, caiman, sea turtles (various seasons), various bird species including many species of hummingbird, iguana and other reptiles,
Most activities are included in the package price, but you can opt for extra boat trips if required and to go turtle watching in season, and fishing. Early morning tours are also an option, good for birdwatching.
In the rainy season, May to October, this Caribbean side of Costa Rica enjoys drier conditions than the rest of the country. July to September is the time when green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

You will be pleased to hear that [our] party returned safely from Costa Rica… We had a most wonderful holiday. All the arrangements made for us came up trumps. The drivers always arrived early [and] were keen to stop and show us any wild life they spotted as we travelled, also were able to identify any bird we had pointed out. All guides were excellent and eager to share their knowledge. As for rain we did not see a drop and had two days of being able to see the top of Arenal…We were impressed by [your representatives], and I found [them] to be most helpful.
