Manatus sits in the wild and remote Tortuguero National Park, and is one of the most comfortable places to stay in the region. Days are spent drifting along the Tortuguero canals in search of beautiful flora and fauna, exploring the quirky and colourful village of Tortuguero and simply enjoying the flooded forest wildlife from the grounds of the lodge. In additional to a programme of set activities included in your stay, a number of optional experiences can be arranged including kayaking, zip-lining through the jungle canopy and twilight nature walks in the forest. Turtle nesting tours also take place between July and October.
Set close to the river, the lodge's collection of standalone. casita-style rooms offer four-poster beds, polished wood floors and outdoor terraces. Unusually for Tortuguero, they are also fully air conditioned. When not out exploring the lodge's beautiful surroundings, guests can dip into the riverside swimming pool, indulge in a spa treatment, or discover the work of Costa Rican artist, Marcela Crespo Gallegos, in the lodge's art gallery. Savour the flavours of an Afro-Caribbean fusion menu at Ara Macaw restaurant followed by a zingy margarita in the Morpho Bar.
