Mawamba Lodge

Mawamba Lodge is a 15-acre beach front beautiful property located on the Northeast area of Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast on a sand bar between the Tortuguero Canals and the Caribbean Sea. An excellent location that provides direct access to the pristine beach, the canals and at a close walking distance by the beach to town.

Often referred to as the “Amazon of Costa Rica” because of its network of lakes and canals, and being that its only reachable by boat or air, Tortuguero is the ideal place to enjoy the rain forest at first hand. Nestled in the heartland of the rain forest, this is the ideal hideaway for nature lovers and the ideal place to discover the wonders of the Tortuguero National Park.

Because of its location, Mawamba operates through “vacation packages” rather than lodging-only services. These trips, will comfortably take you to Tortuguero at the best value. You just select the length of your stay, and Mawamba will organize your transportation to and from San Jose (both by land and boat), the lodging, meals, tours in the area, and will have a guide to show the best of Tortuguero throughout your stay.

The Lodge’s beautiful gardens are a great introduction to the fauna of the area and the rustic accommodations blend with the exuberant jungle vegetation, exotic birds and wildlife creating the perfect balance with nature. All the spacious and comfortable rooms are built in fine woods and are equipped with either 1 double and 1 single bed or 3 single beds. All feature a private bathroom with hot water and ceiling fans and offer tranquil garden views.

The Family style international restaurant, right next to the beach entrance, caters International and delicious local cuisine, with a special emphasis in the local Caribbean style and the beautiful pool and whirlpool area is surrounded by beautiful gardens, the Red-eyed tree frog garden, where you can observe these animals in their natural habitat and the bar where you can enjoy exotic tropical cocktails as well as being close to the game room area. Spread along the property, and tucked away in the gardens, are the relaxing ranchos (palapas) with hammock, the right place to relax after a day of adventures and discoveries, read a good book or just enjoy the sounds of the rainforest.

The Mawamba Park, is a private facility in the grounds of the hotel that features two butterfly farms as well as an iguana and frog project. Our private trail, right next to Tortuguero National Park is a wonderful opportunity to discover the flora and fauna of the area, and if thirsty for more, a night tour in the trail will provide a great opportunity to hear the sounds of the Rainforest at night time.
