Tortuguero is very unusual & Casa Marbella is a great place to experience it. The outdoor area makes it! Our room was a little dark & noisy next to the kitchen. But clean & cool. Definately do the morning tour and turtle tour and walk...More
On our opinion Casa Marbella is the best solution to visit Tortuguero.
It's a nice, quite, clean B&B on the riverside in the heart of pueblo of Tortuguero.
Casa Marbella also organize morning boat tours in the national park and night tours to see the...More
Rooms were clean, good air conditioning and very central. Water in the shower was lukewarm.
Good deck to sit on and helpful reception staff, some of whom double as tour guides on the excellent tour of the national park.
One downside was the flies during...More
We spent 2 nights here which is plenty for Tortuguero. This is a very basic no frills place but is a great value for what you get. It is right on the river close to the boat launch. We arrived around 2. check in was...More

Late August is a great time to visit if you want to see turtles. The peak of the Green Sea Turtle nesting season is the third week of August. If you come towards the end of the month (or even in early September) you will still have an excellent chance to observe them and there will be fewer tourists in late summer.
We have a variety of rooms (no two are alike) and only two of them face the "road" (there are no cars in Tortuguero). Some face into the property and others face the river. Rooms are very affordable and fairly priced according to their size and the view.
Our most economical rooms start at a very reasonable $35 per night including taxes (single ocupancy). We do not charge for coffee, tea and the full breakfast served between 7:00-10:00 every day.
Most people spend the vast majority of their time wildlife watching in the national park (which is practically next door), exploring the village and the attractions in the surrounding area, or sitting on our large covered deck overlooking the river relaxing, sharing photos with their friends and family using our wireless internet, watching birds or just observing the boats going by.
Our guests tend to spend very little time in their rooms so if you want a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay as a base for your explorations in the area I would recommend one of the more economical rooms.
I see you have already written to us directly. We will be sending you all kinds of details about our accommodations, how to get to Tortuguero and what activities you might like to try. We have friendly, highly-experienced, licensed guides who would be delighted to show you the natural marvels that make Tortuguero a must-visit destination in any nature-lover's Costa Rica itinerary.
Thanks for considering us for your stay. I am confident that you will be very well looked after and will take away some great memories from this little corner in paradise.
