Located right on the water, with a friendly and cosy atmosphere, first class service and comfortable cabins it’s no wonder that Manatus is hailed as one the best hotels in the Tortuguero.

The 12 rooms are typically ‘Tico’ (Costa Rican) in style, spacious, well equipped, and comfortable with a real sense of privacy. With natural wood furniture and warm colours, the rooms are designed to make you feel connected to the surrounding wildlife and canals.

And by simply stepping off the hotel’s private jetty onto their motorboats you can begin days discovering the national park and its teeming wildlife with comprehensive tour programs and naturalist guides. Then there’s kayaking along the canals, fishing, hiking or simply relaxing on the hotel’s waterside decking.

The specially designed Afro-Caribbean fusion menu at Ara Macaw gourmet restaurant is sure to delight your senses. Choose one of the special combinations of local Caribbean flavours and scents, or opt for a more cosmopolitan dish. Then the perfect place to spend a tropical evening is at Morpho Bar where there are a variety of cocktails to choose from.

Take a dip in the outdoor pool overlooking the Tortuguero canals and fringed with swaying palms. Strolling through the hotel’s beautiful gardens you’ll discover a world of tropical flowers, exotic plants and vibrant birdlife.

Rates include transfers to and from the hotel, all meals, guided tours and the national park entrance fee.
