Tortuga Lodge is situated on 146 acres of private land on Costa Rica’s northeast Caribbean coast. The Tortuguero region is defined by rivers, and can only be reached by boat or plane. The hotel sits right on one of the area’s many waterways, and offers boat tours with naturalist guides and excursions into the Tortuguero National Park, one of the most biologically rich rainforests in Central America. The lodge’s Caribbean plantation style gardens have walking trails, and your stay includes a free walking tour with a naturalist guide. The hotel has a pool that overlooks the river and a restaurant featuring local ingredients.
