We had 3 nights in Casa Marbella. Daryl the owner was very nice and helpful. The room were basic but clean. No aircon (not necessary in January), but a fan and hot water in the shower as well. Breakfast was simple but good and we...More
Darryl's place is a great value. Clean with basic furnishings. It sits behind a dock on the Tortuguero Canal. We caught an incredible wildlife boat tour arranged by Casa Marbella into Tortuguero Nat'l Park that left off the Marbella's dock. A couple dozen white-faced spider...More
Casa Marbella was a great place to start off our Costa Rica holiday. And very good value for money. A basic place, but that's it's charm as you really feel that you are experiencing the authentic Costa Rica, with no roads in Tortuguero so no...More
Casa Marbella is basic, but well kept. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast is very rich and varied, the position is unique, fantastic sunsets. You have a fridge, a bakery is close by.
This place is a great value. Daryl was very helpful in giving us directions to get there and places to visit around town. The turtle tour we came for was arranged very easily and went off without a hitch and with lots of turtles viewed....More

Late August is a great time to visit if you want to see turtles. The peak of the Green Sea Turtle nesting season is the third week of August. If you come towards the end of the month (or even in early September) you will still have an excellent chance to observe them and there will be fewer tourists in late summer.
We have a variety of rooms (no two are alike) and only two of them face the "road" (there are no cars in Tortuguero). Some face into the property and others face the river. Rooms are very affordable and fairly priced according to their size and the view.
Our most economical rooms start at a very reasonable $35 per night including taxes (single ocupancy). We do not charge for coffee, tea and the full breakfast served between 7:00-10:00 every day.
Most people spend the vast majority of their time wildlife watching in the national park (which is practically next door), exploring the village and the attractions in the surrounding area, or sitting on our large covered deck overlooking the river relaxing, sharing photos with their friends and family using our wireless internet, watching birds or just observing the boats going by.
Our guests tend to spend very little time in their rooms so if you want a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay as a base for your explorations in the area I would recommend one of the more economical rooms.
I see you have already written to us directly. We will be sending you all kinds of details about our accommodations, how to get to Tortuguero and what activities you might like to try. We have friendly, highly-experienced, licensed guides who would be delighted to show you the natural marvels that make Tortuguero a must-visit destination in any nature-lover's Costa Rica itinerary.
Thanks for considering us for your stay. I am confident that you will be very well looked after and will take away some great memories from this little corner in paradise.
