What a wonderful and quiet place. You're quite literally on the beach here. The staff was friendly, and the rooms were cleaned every morning. If you're looking for a place to unwind, this is the place to do it.
Place is ok. Ok beds, ok rooms, ok rest of it. BUT on our way by bus a random guy was holding a list with our names and asking if we were on it. We didn't like the way he acted so we said no. He turned out to be some tourist guide Cabinas Icaco sells the names to. After this guide would push the tourist to get the tours and would treat them as THEIRS in front of the other guides. Terrible harrasment just for the guy to make some extra money selling the daily arrivals.
Hostel Icaco was great! Beautiful location looking out to the ocean. Delicious breakfast available and amazing staff! Calixto was great and helped David with his assignment to interview a native spanish speaker. Tortuguero is an amazing village, everyone is so nice and helped us with anything we needed. I did not want to leave.
