Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Rainforest Cabina is the sole accomodation at Casa Cecropia property, where we give the Cacao-Chocolate tour. It is located right next to the entrance to Tortuguero National Park. The place is very private and quiet, the property is lagoon front. Center of Tortuguero village and the beach is only 5-10 minutes walking. Perfect for travellers and nature lovers who want to feel the rainforest, great for sighting wild animals and birdwatching.

The space
The Rainforest Cabina is a 32 square meters wooden cabina with open windows caribbean-style, built up on concrete stilts. The room has a bunk bed, double and single up and a fan. The livingroom has another fan, a table, chairs, cooler and hammock. The bathroom has a hot water shower and a space with hangers. The entrance has a little balcony with the lagoon view. We built the cabina for family and friends but we enjoy to rent it when nobody is visiting us. The place is very private as only my wife and me live on the property. It is very quiet, borderline with Tortuguero National Park, with rainforest sounds of native wildlife and vegetation.

I am a Costa Rican biologist. I lived in Tortuguero with my wife Claire from 1987 to 1994 doing biological research and nature tourism. Later on, we raised our 2 kids in a farm near San Jose and I worked as a naturalist guide for 25 years in Central America for several companies, including NatGeo and Lindblad Expeditions. Recently we came back to Tortuguero with our new cultural and ecological projects. We run a the Chocolate Tour in Tortuguero. We built The Rainforest Cabina for our family and friends when they come to visit us. We are glad to rent it when nobody is visiting. Casa Cecropia is right on the border of Tortuguero National Park, so there is a lot of wildlife around. We are riverfront, less then 10 minutes walking to the beach and less then 5 minutes walking to the center of the village.
