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.

We felt it was an excellent and well thought out itinerary to a beautiful, peaceful and very interesting country. Our ‘celebrity’ guide George McGavin was a great success. In addition to his vast knowledge and huge enthusiasm – George was caring towards the group and was constantly humourous and entertaining. He added a lot more to the tour then just his insect knowledge!
