          Their website will have all of that info. They do offer boards and surfing classes. Search Surfing Turtle Lodge on google. It should come right up. I can't post the link due to Trip Advisor Restrictions.

          Hi, the prices are moderate. A meal can cost you between $3 to $10. And the drinks are not expensive either. They serve cocktails too.

          Many of the reviews for this property refer to the food prices being very high. Yet no one gives examples or "defines" high. High prices can be different to different people. Any idea of what to expect price wise for food and beverages? Thanks.
