Pachira Lodge is an all-inclusive lodge in Tortuguero that offers round-trip transportation from San Jose, meals and a handpicked selection of tours for one- and two-night packages, $210 and $280 during wet season (Sept. 1-Dec. 14).
Land on the docks beside the bar, receive tour welcome refreshment and walk across the wide jigsaw cement cobbles beneath the trees, cross onto pathway and walk through the gardens between heliconia and ginger flowers to find your cabin. Every room has its own front and back patio with rocking chairs. The interiors of the rooms feature vaulted ceilings with a skylight, sea foam green walls and terracotta-tile floors furnished with two queen-size beds, fans, mirrors and safety deposit boxes. Wi-Fi is available near Pachira's reception and restaurant.
Set in a large dining hall surrounded by screen windows, Pachira Lodge offers buffet-style meals included in its packages. For breakfast, Pachira makes scrambled eggs, gallo pinto (mixed rice and beans), pancakes, fresh fruit and cereal. Lunch and dinner include Caribbean and Costa Rican themed-meals like the coconut-stewed chicken with coconut-infused rice and beans.
