I have returned from your beautiful country and my daughter is there in school until January.
I cannot express to you how wonderful it was at Pachira Lodge. Every activity was very enjoyable and the accommodations were lovely. From the bus that picked us up to the day we left, every detail was great. Geraldo was our guide and he was so knowledgeable and kind. We learned so much from him. He impressed us each day. The food and the kitchen staff were great too. We saw the turtles lay eggs and that was the highlight of our week in Costa Rica. So beautiful and memorable. We went zip lining with the canopy company and had a great time doing that too. We have so many photos to remember our time at Pachira that we will cherish forever.
I will highly recommend Pachira to my friends and a travel agent I know.
Thank you for all of your help in planning our trip!
Best wishes—Katie Cohen
"I want to say a big thank you for helping us to book a stay at Pachira Lodge for the 3 day tour.
We had a fabulous time. In particular, our guide, Rolando, was terrific. He was knowledgeable, interesting and amusing, telling us s much about your wonderful country, it's people and wild life.
The whole experience, including the journey by road and boat, the lodge, food and activities was fantastic.
So thank you very much and keep up the good work!"—Robert
"Last week I went to Costa Rica for the first time on vacation. I spent the two nights at the Pachira lodge in Tortuguero. I wanted to let your company know how amazing the experience was for me. I enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and the staff. We were able to see so many animals and plants. The food was so delicious and healthy. I enjoyed the Caribbean meal we had on our last evening there. The howler monkeys were difficult to get used to waking up to. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about all of the wildlife and plants there. Our guide Manfred even reminded me of Diego the explorer form the Nickelodeon cartoon. He had a really great personality. The place was neat and clean. It was nice to be away from civilization camping with no phones or internet. I will never forget this wonderful time I had there and I would recommend this tour to anyone. I am a school teacher and I cannot wait to share the knowledge I learned about this beautiful rainforest with the students in my class. Thank you again for this breathe taking experience."—Leticia Diaz. Victorville, CA

"Pachira Lodge has offered me all I need for the perfect vacation: beautiful surroundings, amazing trips, nice people, good food, relaxation and lots of fun! Pachira Lodge is located in the middle of the fabulous rainforest of Tortuguero, where your morning wake-up call is done by howler monkeys!"-Rodney, The Netherlands
"Wonderful place. We saw more wildlife here than anywhere else. Sloths, howler monkey, spider monkeys, so many different birds just our side our cabin. Really liked the all inclusive with the meals. I was disappointed that Tortuguero has become so touristy. So many more tourist shops since I was there 9 years ago. All sell basically the same exact items. Pachira has made some very nice changes since I was there last. We really enjoyed our room and the surroundings. The long journey there is definitely worth it!"-Katherine J Cady
