The smallest lodge in Tortuguero that offers a relatively more luxurious base from which to explore the biodiverse and leafy Tortuguero National park.
Manatus is an ideal option for those that want a day of exploring of this biodiverse location, but then be able to return to your hotel where the food is of a higher standard and the rooms are cooler in what can be a very humid area.  

Manatus Lodge - The Details 

Manatus Lodge is located directly on the river where you will find a jetty with a few chairs that look out onto the water - a nice spot for a refreshing beer in the evenings. Next to the jetty there is a small pool to refresh yourself in after a day of exploring the wonders of the bushy Tortuguero. 

There are just 12 spacious and air-conditioned brick rooms that have ensuite bathrooms, flat screen TV’s and comfortable furnishings. 

Manatus is a little different as it is located in a bit of an opening, whereas the other lodges in the area are immersed into the forest. A second difference is that the Ara Macaw restaurant is a la carte, not buffet.

Manatus Lodge - Activities

The theme of personal service which sets Manatus apart from other lodges in the area extends to the activities which it offers being completely tailor-made to suit your particular interests. Fishing is really big here, so you can choose to give that a go one day. Enjoy exploring Tortuguero from canal, boat, kayak and canopies in the various tours the lodge offers. Also enjoy the magical turtle nesting night tour, hiking, twilight tours and a visit to the local village.
