Evergreen Lodge

Caribbean

Rating: Mid-range    

Evergreen Lodge overview

This family-friendly lodge is situated on Costa Rica's north Caribbean coast, just a 5 minute boat ride from the main entrance to Tortuguero National Park. There are 55 rooms, all en-suite, spacious and kept cool by ceiling fans. The lodge has 2 acres of grounds for you to explore, with canopy walkways giving you fine views of the rainforest.
The dining room is light and airy. Generous buffet-style meals are served here, allowing you to sample as many different dishes as you wish. The bar is a great place to relax and discuss travel stories with fellow guests over a refreshing drink, and you can enjoy quiet downtime in the lounge. There's an inviting outdoor swimming pool, ideal for cooling off in the midday heat. The spa offers a range of services including massages to ease tired muscles.  
Activities available include boat trips, kayaking, forest walks and wildlife spotting in Tortuguero, known for its varied flora and fauna. You can also watch turtles if you're here during the egg-laying season, July to October. 

details

Open:  Evergreen Lodge is open all year.  

Location:  The lodge is in north east Costa Rica, just a 5 minute boat ride from Tortuguero National Park. From San Jose you travel by bus for about 2 hours followed by a motorised boat ride of around an hour.   

Rooms:  There are 55 guest rooms, all en-suite with hot and cold running water. They are kept cool by ceiling fans. The accommodation is simple but comfortable.

Activities:  Take motor boat rides, go kayaking and guided nature walks in Tortuguero National Park whilst looking out for monkeys, lizards, otters, turtles, caiman and birds, follow the canopy tour in the lodge’s grounds. From July to October you may see nesting green turtles, with evening walking tours to watch them on the beach. Fishing is good between January and May, and again from August to October.  The boat, forest, and other excursions are done as group activities where you will be joining several other guests from the lodge.  

Facilities:  The lodge is set in 2 hectares of grounds. There is a restaurant and a bar, with a TV and music. Outside there is a swimming pool with a Jacuzzi and large sunbathing area with loungers. The al fresco resting area is a good place to sit among the trees between excursions. The spa offers massages.     

Dining:  Meals are served buffet style at set times, and there is wine to accompany dinner. Meals are eaten at individual tables at one of the restaurants.

Children:  Children of all ages are welcome. Rooms can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years.

Health:  Other than the province of Limon, Costa Rica has low to no risk of malaria.

Communication:  There is Wi-Fi internet access, but this can be patchy.

Notes:   Wellington boots and ponchos are available for guest use.

Jon Cable (11/04/2018)

"Fun to get to, great to stay in"

Gill (02/04/2018)
"Lovely location in the middle of nowhere. Nice lodgings, food healthy though unexciting. Nice pool."
Julia (31/03/2018)
"We loved being in the middle of the jungle and hearing howler monkeys at 4.30am! (With the time difference we were awake anyway!). We quickly became friends with the people who joined us at our table for every meal and some of them were on our excursions too. Juan was not only our guide but also like a holiday rep making sure we were in the right place at the right time. He was excellent, although I think we were lucky as some other people didn’t seem to have as good as an experience as we did with other guides."
Mr. Martin Burt (30/03/2018)
"Full board Breakfast - Excellent Lunch - Excellent Dinner - Adequate. Superb lodge (Evergreen) lovely setting Tours were enjoyable Pool was very nice."
Mr Ian Barthorpe (28/03/2018)
"The rustic feel to the lodges, with mosquito netting instead of glass for windows, really made us feel like we were part of the rainforest - especially listening to the night-time sounds, and the frog visiting our shower! Very nicely presented, with towels folded into swans on arrival. Beautiful gardens, full of amazing wildlife, including monkeys, toucans and blue land crabs. The access by boat was part of the adventure, and the fully inclusive programme of activities was well organised and perfectly paced."
