What I didn’t like

There isn’t anything that I didn’t like about the Surfing Turtle Lodge but there are a few things to consider:

  • All food and drinks must be purchased from the on-site restaurant/bar since there are no restaurants nearby. Although we didn´t take our own groceries, there is no kitchen available for use had wanted to cook our own meals (suggestion: Stop at a grocery store or little shop for some snacks and fruit beforehand – save money).
  • The kitchen is only open up to 7:30 pm. We had to stock up on food each night before the cook left.
  • During the rainy season mosquitos may come out at night – walk with some repellant just in case.
  • Although turtles can be seen on shore in front of Surfing Turtle Lodge year-round, the height of the egg-hatching season is from December to March. For more information on the turtle-hatching project at the lodge, click here.
