For all of our vacation rentals, please inquire for rates as they do vary for holidays and peak times. All rates include taxes & cleaning. Osa Tropical can also make reservations for domestic flights, car rentals, and hotel stays, and we can arrange taxis to make your vacation a breeze!
Electricity in Casa Tortuga is mainly 12-volt for lights and fans. There is a small inverter that will allow you to charge batteries and use small appliances to a limited extent, but this is restricted and the solar system is not design to sustain large draws.
All of the houses in the Matapalo area are eco-houses that use solar power. Solar power is a renewable energy and thus helps to reduce global warming. The house is powered with 12-volt solar power, so please be conservative with your use of energy.
Usually the light during the day is sufficient to light up the rooms, as the sun rises at 5 and goes down around 5:30pm-6:00pm. Since the house is not equipped with strong light bulbs or fluorescent lights, you’ll also need to use candles, lanterns, and flashlights. There are also showers with hot water, heated up through solar power.
Please do not bring coffee makers, radios, stereos, hairdryers, and other appliances a typical 120-volt outlet will support. These appliances will drain all of the solar energy, leaving none for basic use. You may bring battery chargers for your video and still cameras. Unplug this appliance when finished charging.
We recommend to turn off all lights, fans and other small appliances when not in direct use.
