The location is great near the beach. Clean and quiet area. Hammock area gets some nice sea breeze. Good for ready and relaxing. A nice boy carried out luggage from and to the dock. Very good value. Recommended!

My wife and kids stayed her for three nights and it was a highlight of our entire trip. The 6 hammocks out front were great for relaxing and reading a book and for socializing with other travelers. Calisto was fantastic and really went above and beyond to help guide us out of a pinch after we had already left Tortuguero....

My travelling companions and I loved this place! The room is really basic, but clean and we managed to take hot showers. There is no AC but there is a ceiling fan that did the job for us just fine (our visit was at the beginning of January). The restaurant was good and provided us with the breakfast, beers (cheap!),...

Cabinas el Icaco is on the outskirts of Tortuguero on the Caribbean side of the island. You can hear the waves crashing at night and see the sea from the dining area. We had a very basic room--a bed and a table for our luggage. The room was clean, the ceiling fan kept us cool, and the bed was comfortable....

Clean & spacious rooms with a fridge & a fan. Hot showers. Walking distance to everything in Tortuguero but take a torch for the evenings. It is on the beach but don't be fooled...the waves are ridiculous so you'd have to be mad or very brave to take a dip! No kitchen facilities which is a shame. On the plus...

Clear wave and animal sound in the night. 3. Outside every room has a bench and a table, which is very comfortable for reading. con 1. The room is...

Price-quality is perfect! Excellent location, right on the beach and near National Park Tortuguero. While relaxing in one of the hammocks on the beach, I forgot my camera. I only realised this, when I already left Tortuguero. I emailed Calixto about the forgotten camera and he sent the camera all the way to the Netherlands, free of charge! Excellent Service,...

Place was good and transfer with boat was included in our package. Room coul be more lightened up. Neighbours are too loud at night. Worth taking a mosquito net with you. Apart from the good price the rooms could be more friendly. Breakfast was not included, but you can get breakfast in the village centre. We had a boat tour...

This place is situated right in front of the beach, just a short walk from Tortuguero Central. The staff is nice and accommodations and the fans in the room are more than enough to keep you cool at night. A little better selection of bottled beverages would be good as well as some kind of signature cocktail would enhance the...
