Through the calm waters of the Tortuguero canals navigate thousands of tourists every year… waters where the boat slides slowly, letting you appreciate in detail the lush vegetation and the animals in the area. The reflection of nature in the water is captivating, mesmerizing.

Tortuguero is a paradise embedded in the province of Limón, in the Caribbean of Costa Rica, a place so unique that you can only access it by air or sailing through the water canals. It is here, in the middle of Costa Rican privileged nature, where the Manatus Hotel is located.

Manatus and its staff do not spare efforts to make their guests have a great relaxing stay at the hotel, enjoying all its amenities. There’s no doubt why, this year, the hotel won its second Certificate of Excellence given by the travel website TripAdvisor.

The guests at Manatus Hotel come from all over the world

At Tripadvisor the flattering comments regarding Manatus Hotel are countless, coming from tourist from Spain, Chile, Mexico, the United States, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Norway and France, only to name a few. We share with you some of them:

Katillu, Eibar, Spain: Located on the edge of the Tortuguero canals, the Manatus hotel is a true wonder. Ideal for visiting the fabulous jungle environment that constitutes Tortuguero. The rooms are beautiful and the staff treatment is excellent. In short, is a charming hotel, a true marvel. 

Duffer56, Kent, England: What an amazing place! The accommodations, the service, the food and the staff couldn´t be criticized! The boat trips through the Tortuguero National Park were amazing: we saw almost all of the birds, reptiles and mammals in our list and the guide was great. From the gardens of Manatus we saw howler monkeys, sloths and iguanas. Waking up in a rain forest with the cries of howler monkeys is an experience not to be missed! I would return in the blink of an eye!

Isa Panto, Marbella, Spain: We went for our honeymoon a few months ago and we still remember that place. There you can see a thousand kind of animals, birds and plants. The treatment from the staff is close and very kind. The rooms are cute and charming. All perfect.

Mendolun, Mexico City: Sensational place that’s only reachable by boat; a hotelwith 12 cabins in the middle of lush vegetation and surrounded by palms, trees and rivers, making our stay wonderful and magical.

María G., Cádiz, Spain: Without a doubt the best choice in the entire area to stay, for different reasons: the rooms, the attention, the food … and an excellent staff. Thank you for making us felt so comfortable in your facilities!

Dee A, UK:Manatus Hotel was one of the best places we stayed in Costa Rica. We had two days of full pleasure, from the moment we took the boat for a 90 minute sailing in the water canal to the hotel dock. It’s a beautiful area and we often felt like we had the waterways for ourselves, during our excursions in nature.

Gooniegoonie, Palma de Mallorca, Spain: A perfect location, immensely friendly and helpful staff. All very neat: room, food, gardens, pool, hikes … a blast. Do not miss it. It’s a wonder.

Eurythe, Bilbao, Spain: We arrived after a trip through the water canals where you start getting an idea of what you are going to find. What we remember the most is the dock from where we saw the sunsets, sitting in the rocking chairs with a cocktail in our hands! We will never forget that sensation of peace and those spectacular views! The truth is that I could write a book about Manatus.
