Open: Pachira Lodge is open all year.

Location: The lodge is in north east Costa Rica, just a five 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 88 rooms, all en-suite with hot and cold running water. They are kept cool by ceiling fans and mesh windows allow cooling breezes to flow. The accommodation is simple but comfortable.

Activities: Take motor boat rides, go kayaking and enjoy guided nature walks in Tortuguero National Park whilst looking out for monkeys, lizards, otters, turtles, caiman and birds, follow the nature trail 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.

Facilities: There is a restaurant and a bar. Outside there is a swimming pool shaped like a giant turtle, 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: Wholesome meals are served with both international and Costa Rican flavours, and there is wine to accompany dinner. Meals are eaten at individual tables.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome. Rooms can accommodate up to two adults and two 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 in the main areas, but this can be unreliable. The mobile phone signal is usually quite good.
