When Do You Want To Go?
Mawamba Lodge is located on a narrow strip of rainforest between unspoilt Caribbean beaches and the Tortuguero canals in Costa Rica. The region is home to interconnecting rivers, canals, lakes and has a diverse eco-system abundant with rare birdlife and wildlife. It also sits in the very heart of Tortuguero National Park, a short distance from Tortuguero village and approximately 2.5 hours from bustling capital, San José.
Mawamba Lodge boasts 50 standard lodge rooms and 6 superior rooms which are decorated with natural wood finishes and muted colour palates which exude a relaxing, rustic ambience. Standard rooms have garden views, double or single beds, en-suite facilities and ceiling fans, while superior bungalow style accommodations feature king-size beds, spacious bathrooms and canal views. Hidden away among clusters of emerald trees are the hotel swimming pool, whirlpool and renowned open-air Red Eye Tree Frog Project. Take an early morning dip, enveloping your senses with the lilting sounds of bird song, or enjoy a guided tour of the fascinating amphibian project.
Mawamba Lodge has two restaurants. Mamba - located by the swimming pool and beach serves delicious cuisine buffet style, while Katonga is a floating restaurant offering lunch and dinner while gently cruising the canal. If you fancy a nightcap, Chelonia Bar offers tropical cocktails, beers, wines and spirits as well as soft drinks. Alternatively, you can enjoy hot beverages and a good book or check your emails in the Coffee Room next to reception.
There are many activities to enjoy close to Mawamba Lodge, from day or evening canal boat trips to wildlife kayaking, village tours, nature walks and turtle nesting expeditions.
