Hotel \' Ilan Ilan \' gets its name from a tree, which is very exclusive in the area (Cananga odorata, Ylang Ylang ). Yellow flowers with a very pleasant scent characterize it.
The Hotel, which is located on the strip of land at about 5 Kms from the Tortuguero Village, between the Tortuguero Lagoon and the Penitencia Canal which leads to Barra de Colorado, has an area of 8 hectares. Seven of which belong to the Natural Reserve created by the Hotel, where you can find monkeys, smoky frogs (\'frogs with blue jeans\'), slots, many birds species and a great rain forest.
The Hotel was built in 1989 with the idea of providing the necessary facilities to the tourist exploring in an area of very limited access, yet without harming its natural richness, so the tourist has the chance to really appreciate a tropical rain forest.
