This is a beautiful and tranquil jewel in Tortuguero, Costa Rica and I'm listing it for my friend Rey. Taylor's Place consists of a spacious garden with many thriving tropical plants and foliage, a small restaurant open for dinner with great outdoor ambiance and only 2 rooms available for rental.
All rooms have private bathrooms with hot shower, fan and/or air conditioning units. The room offered here sleeps 2 or 3, but bigger parties could rent all 3 rooms and it would be like your own place.
The place is very private and a bit away from the hustle of "Main" Street and it's nightlife music. As with any place in Tortuguero, the beach and park entrance are close by and so are all other attractions.
The short list of thing to do and tours to do include the Canoe Tour through the waterways of the Tortuguero National Park, a guided or explore on your own Kayak Tour, a guided nighttime Turtle Walk and for those up to it some Sportfishing out on the ocean. Rey can help you get these set up, but there are also many places in town where you can book one.
Arrival is usually by boat from La Pavona, this can be done with public transportation or via direct shuttle service from San Jose. Time permitting you will be picked up at the dock.
Simply put, it's a beautiful place and you will be happy to have stayed there!
I never met Alexandra. However, we have plenty of communication. She told me exactly how to get to Taylor's Place in Tortuguero by public transport. Thank you Alexandra.
Taylor's place is nice with nice garden, which becomes a restaurant in the evenings and a bar. The room was small, but clean. Rey, the owner, keeps the place nice with beautiful flowers and candles.
Rey est un hôte qui sait recevoir ses invités ! Cette location est très bien située au cœur du petit village de Tortuguero. Le lieu est propre et sûr... Quand au restaurant du même nom, il offre un cadre très agréable pour le dîner. À recommander pour un authentique séjour à Tortuguero.
What a great find. We decided to extend our trip in CR last min and scrambled with where to go and finding a place. A cheap 6am flight took us to Tortuguero (email hidden) the night before we booked at Taylor's Place. Within 30 min Andrea accepted our request for the next day and called us to ask if we needed a water taxi from the airport because otherwise we would be stuck there. Rey arranged it for us and even let us into the room at 7:30 am which was great since we were so exhausted and fell asleep immediately.
We stayed 3 days and quickly learned that Taylor's Place is the best hidden spot in town. The restaurant is only open for dinner so we got to hang out in the beautiful garden during the day. We ate there every night for dinner because hands down it was the best food in the village and we tried all but 1 or 2 spots.
The room itself is small and basic but the bed is more comfortable then any hostel for that price. Be prepared for a few bugs or lizards but that's anywhere we've been in Costa Rica. There was a fan and AC unit we didn't need to use.
We always felt safe with out belongings in the room. Rey's mother lives across. The path and keeps an eye on the place. We were lounging in the room with the door open and she saw and came over to make sure everything was ok. She always said hello and goodbye to us when we left and when we left for good she gave me a big hug.
WiFi was broken when we got there but that just made us go check out the other cafés in town and we learned Taylor's Place was still the best.
We can't say enough good things about Taylor's Place.
The place is clean, well located and nice. The host is absolutly kind and the restaurant is really good. I defenetly recommand this place!
Rey at Taylor's place is an excellent host. Great restaurant there too but still very quiet and peaceful
One of the greatest place during our trip un Costa Rica! Rey is a great host, welcomig us with a fresh juice and lot of advices and attentions. The room was very nice as well. Do not miss the excellent food in the restaurant (the best one we found in Tortuguero). Great experience! Thanks again Rey!
