Lodge in the Tortuguero National Park
Tours starting at Mawamba Lodge
This unique place invites you by very special qualities.
The Mawamba Lodge is one of the pioneer families in the Tortuguero National Park. Sr. Mauricio, with his family and an excellent team, founded this lodge 26 years ago, and they are constantly working to bring improvements and renovations. And they have succeeded quite fantastic.
With 34 standard rooms and 4 superior rooms, the lodge remains small and familiar. It is one of the smallest Lodges in Tortuguero.
Delicious buffet style food in the restaurant, and a beautiful pool invites you to relax. The bar and some games as table football and pool, provide entertainment between sophisticated tours.
The nearby beach is perfect for long walks: from July to October, when the giant turtles lay eggs there, the beach is closed in the evenings. Then, you may observe (only with the group organized by the lodge) the turtles spawn. The whole tour is, of course, under extreme precautions, to avoid disturbing the turtles in any case.
The village of Tortuguero is only accessible by boat or plane. A stay at the lodge Mawamba should be booked in advance with us and we can realize a connection with any other destination.
For example Sarapiqui, Puero viejo, Cahuita, Playa Cocles, la Fortuna or Boca tapada.
We will be happy to advise. A standard package is the three-day trip from/ to San Jose, Santa Ana or the Central Valley.
We are also happy to plan a continuous journey to the Caribbean beaches. Or vice versa: we'll pick you up on the beaches, two nights at the lodge, and on the third day the transfer to San Jose. Also, you can cover a distance by bus/ boat, and organize the way back to the plane.
You should necessarily try to use as many services offered by the lodge: tours and places to see.
Additional they offer an early morning boat tour, where you can watch wildlife of Tortuguero National Park. The professional guides know the park as their own hands, and have a lot of background information on flora and fauna.
