Tortuguero is one of those unique and truly unforgettable places in this world and of course Costa Rica.  In seclusion and only reachable by boats that ride through the winding water canals with lush rainforest and vegetation on their banks.  This incredible ecosystem is home to a myriad of animals including birds, crocodiles, monkeys, and even the elusive felines.  This is a nature-lovers paradise.

When Costa Rica closed its borders in March 2020 to face the onset of the global pandemic, tourism came to a standstill sending the tourism sector into survival mode. While some companies decided to cater to the local tourism market, others decided to remain closed until the international tourism market began to make its presence felt. This was what Manatus Costa Rica decided to do.

July 1st, 2021 is an important day for Manatus Costa Rica and Tortuguero. 

So let´s refresh our memories on why Manatus Costa Rica is the best hotel in Tortuguero to stay at during your travels to Costa Rica and this little corner of the country that never disappoints and always leaves you in awe of its beauty.
