About this listing
This is a beautiful and tranquil jewel in Tortuguero, Costa Rica and I'm listing it for my friend Rey.
Taylor's Place offers lodging and a beautiful garden-restaurant surrounded by lush tropical flowers and plants. Amazing atmosphere, very romantic
ROOM # 1 with AIR CONDITIONING
The place is very private and quiet as it is a bit away from the hustle of Tortuguero’s Main Street and it's Caribbean nightlife and loud music. However, the beach and park entrance are close by and so are all other attractions.
The room offered has a small ensuite bathroom with hot shower, fan and Air Conditioning. The room offered here sleeps 2 comfortably (full bed) or 3 (second bed is a single), but bigger parties could rent all 2 rooms and it would be like staying at your own place.
Simply put, it's a beautiful place and you will be happy to have stayed at Taylor’s Place!
Guests are welcome to spend time in the Tropical Garden, great for bird watching and enjoy the hammocks and outdoor sitting areas.
The beach is only a short stroll away and so is the center of Tortuguero Village.
Interaction with Guests
That is up to you: entirely.
We respect the space and silence, but are also happy if you join (email hidden) and restaurant.
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 these tours.
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.
You might also fly in from San Jose, check the net for last minute specials.
Other Things to Note
While Taylor's Place does not offer Breakfast service, we are happy to coordinate breakfast with a nearby hostel. Please ask us if interested.
The place is okay if you just look for a clean bed to sleep with a small bathroom, but if you hope for more comfort look for something else. Rosalina, Rey's mom, is the good angel of this place and tries to make your stay nice and clean.

I love Tortuguero. It's a small village and i feel really well there. You get there by boat. Alexandra was asking us for our arrival 3 days before to pick us up, which was very gentle because we didn't really know how that was, not even that we had to get a boat. It's a lovely place to relax and to observe nature. Just the way to Tortuguero is amazing. The personal in charge there (the old lady and Ray) were really nice to us. The only one thing i missed, was the connection to internet, that we used to contact with our familys and at that moment it didn't work.
We had a great stay at Ray's place. Ray is a very nice host and a great cook. The cabina was clean, nice , and from the very first day we could spot toucans in the garden tree. It is conveniently located at the end of the small village, close to everything but quiet and with a nice garden and hammocs. It is a great adress in tortuguero and we would not have wanted to be anywhere else! We felt very lucky :)
Nice, clean and basic place in Tortuguero. Fine rooms with good beds,only the showers was sometimes a little difficult to swich on.
The garden is perfect including the nice dinner of the restaurant.
Overall a perfect locations to stay for this price.
We had a great stay in Tortuguero. Our host was welcoming and even did a load of washing for us (she didn't speak any English so there was a lot of hand signals and guessing but it was no problem) the room was small and the shower wasn't the best, but given the price we didn't expect to be staying in 5 star accommodation. we were very happy with our stay at Taylor's Place
Taylor's place is surrounded by a beautiful garden and conveniently located in Tortuguero village. The room is just as described in the posting; clean, comfortable and well air-conditioned. The people in Tortuguero were incredibly kind, helpful and enthusiastic about teaching others about the wildlife and surrounding environment.

About the Host, Alexandra
Love to read, enjoy the days as they come. Every now and then a stray comes along - some have stayed, while other cats and dogs have found new homes, so there is always some assortment of 4 legged friends around.
I have started to add a couple of additional listings from very good friends and I do vouch for each of the listings added. I hope that these listings can round out a trip to Costa Rica!
