We stayed for a couple of nights here - the rooms are basic but clean. We were upstairs and whilst we looked on to the main street we were never disturbed by any noise from outside or the other guests despite the walls and windows...More
We had the pleasure of staying with Daryl for 3 nights. The trip by boat getting there was an experience in itself and we were dropped off and picked up right at the deck at Casa Marbella. Daryl is an great host and very helpful...More
We arrived at the public dock in Tortuguero via La Pavona which was a breathtaking journey all in itself. Once we got off the boat a gentleman that worked at the info centre gave us directions to Casa Marbella which was just down the dirt...More
Casa Marbella was our first real stop on a three week adventure and we LOVED it! We were in a downstairs room that was basic, dark and adjacent to the street but perfectly good enough and plenty big enough for the four of us. What...More
We were pleased with the modest bed and breakfast. Our group ranged in age from 10 to 72 and our rooms were clean and simple
We never got the hot water to work but the heat made a tepid shower ok

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.
