Get off at the when you reach the river mouth in Poneloya. You’ll know where that is because the bus turns around to go to Las Penitas, another beach town nearby.
There, you’ll see a big Surfing Turtle Lodge sign that will lead you to our Reception Kiosk, a short 5-minute walk from the bus stop.
Our Reception Kiosk is a big yellow house. Once there, ask for our boat captain Daniel and he will take you across the river (a 5 minute boat ride) to Isla Los Brasiles. Follow the signs walking along the island for about 10 minutes and you will arrive at our beachfront lodge or call us before you cross over and we’ll have a horse carriage waiting for you at the dock.
That’s it! You’ve made it. Now sit back, enjoy a nice cold drink, and have a great vacation.
