Lonely Planet review

Situated on the Río San Juan in the community of Trinidad, this budget lodge is right across from the Nicaraguan border crossing and is pretty much the only gig in town. Though on the rustic side, the bamboo-walled bungalows are charming and very clean, with cold-water bathroom. Candle power provides light when the generator shuts off at the end of the night, and meals are available at the rancho , with a pool table besides. The lodge is accessible only by boat (₡5800), which departs once daily at 2pm from the main dock of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí (35km away). The motorized launches leave Trinidad daily at (yawn) 5am. Due to the launch schedules, consider staying two nights to fully appreciate a hike, horseback-riding tour or boat trip through this lush, remote sector of jungle.

Our independent authors have visited Trinidad Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí & Around.
