Pick up from the dock was a great way to start even tho everything is very small on the island and probably could find it on your own! The room is simple but clean and everything you need! The breakfast is great and as all the comments before and the reason why we picked this room is Alonso! We did the hike on his property which was awesome but make sure you rent boots :-) and we did also the boat trip at 6am with him!!! He is great let's say awesome in spotting the animals and knows almost everything!!! The big plus is that you are on your own and not with a big group of tourists for the same price!!!! Will always recommend to stay at his place!!!
Keep up the good work!!!
We had a wonderful stay here during our short visit in Tortuguero! When we got to the small village, someone was waiting for us at the docks and took us directly to the Cabins. At first we weren't sure if this was a sort of usher service we had to tip but then quickly realized that the locals love to take you around and show you the places themselves and introduce you to others, so we were very glad for this particular attention! We were wonderfully greeted by Betty, she is a lovely person and speaks very well english. She made us breakfast one morning and it was delicious! Her family was very friendly, we chatted with Alonso a bit and even though his tour was full when we were there, he organized something else for us that was nonetheless great. As for the room is very basic, but very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this place, we felt welcomed and it made our short stay a memorable experience!
A basic but clean room right in the heart of the village and adjacent to the family home so there was always somebody around. Ideal location, great breakfasts and helpful hosts.
Couldn't have asked for a kinder more thorough hospitality than what I received here. Betty was not here but her daughter Betty was and she went so far as to share a meal with me. Her father Alonso is an amazing wealth of knowledge and on his initiative went with me to find hatching baby turtles. There is nothing like this. I was thrilled picking up the baby, cleaning sand off, and watching it head for the ocean. The next day Alonso took me on a hike and pointed out many fascinating things and then this time found two nests of baby turtles. Alonso also took me on a canoe ride into the park. His family history which is rooted at the birth of Tortuguero, is rich, and he's grown up there, knows everything, helped me understand flowers, the man is an unannointed biologist, I saw caymens, and many other animals. Oh, also, the room was perfectly adequate and comfortable. Very cool sweet people. Stay here. Thank you very much Alonso and Betty for taking care of me!
Betty and Yatty are Very nice people, the room is simple just beds and a fan . Clean and simple . Some shelf's to put your clouds would have been nice
A pesar de no poder conocer a los anfitriones, la ubicacion y la limpieza de las cabinas es correcta, Asi como las indicaciones y la ayuda para hacer los tours en tortuguero
We had an awesome time at Totuguero, because of Betty and Alonso. The room had the basic things, was cleaned up and totally fine for backpackers. We would recoment the turtel night tour and the canoying tour with Alsonso, because you will support native people who offer you a lot of Informations. Don't miss the breakfast from Betty, typicall and very tasty. She is every time open for a little chat, so you can learn more about the little island and her citizens. Thank you for everything! Best regards from Christoph and Anni from Germany
This is a perfect way to get closer to the "local vibes". Alonso and Betty were very hospitable and open hosts. Both are Tortuguero guides, so you would definitely know better the village, the rivers' canals and the beach with turtles with them!
Thank you so much for our adventure in Tortuguero, pura vida!
Estuvimos dos noches en casa de betty y alonso y no pudimos estar mejor. Alonso nació en tortuguero y betty lleva casi toda su vida allí con lo que son unos expertos conocedores de toda la zona. Alonso nos hizo el tour de las tortugas de noche y la visita en canoa por el parque nacional. Es un referente para todos los guías (incluso nos dejaron pasar delante de otros grupos).
La última noche betty nos cocinó un pollo al coco delicioso! Incluso después estuvimos haciendo una muy agradable sobremesa con ella. Es un encanto.
Si buscan un alojamiento autentico de tortuguero este es el lugar (sin lujos, simple y limpio), y con unos amfitriones atentos y agradables!
Betty and Alfonso where just great! They are very nice and always laughing people. We did the canoe and turtle tour with Alfonso. Excellent choice! My recommendation: Make it a "one day - two nights" trip if you can: Book the turtle for the night in advance via airbnb chat with betty. Do the canoe tour next morning (dont miss the sunrise!) and then leave again or do a hike if you like. The island itself is not so exiting and there is (except the tours) not too much to do! Otherwise
you are stuck a whole day waiting for the turtle tour.
The room is simple as simple it can get. So dont expect any comfort. We enjoyed the stay a lot. Especially thanks to the welcoming and loving care of our hosts!
