Luxury Holidays At Tortuga Lodge

Situated in Tortuguero on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast, this wildlife wilderness will surprise and delight in equal measure. Set within its own private nature reserve and surrounded by dense rainforest, Tortuga Lodge and Gardens offers a luxurious escape, coupled with a-la-carte dining and an array of great activities. Tortuguero meaning “place of turtles”, is an area famous for the thousands of sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs. Experience this truly remarkable event alongside nature treks that take you deep into the lush green jungle and riverboat cruises that give you a mysterious and magical tour through the intricate maze of canals, mangroves and rivers of the Tortuguero National Park. Whether you turn your gaze inland into the deep, thick rainforest or out over the shimmering water of the Rio Tortuguero, you’ll be treated to a beautiful array of exotic animals, including monkeys, macaws, jaguars and even the odd crocodile! The sheer remoteness of this splendid hotel encapsulates the true untamed beauty of Costa Rica and allows a total switch-off from everyday life. Wildlife enthusiasts and families will be treated to a luxury jungle experience they will never forget.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Experience the majestic sites of the jungle landscape and discover the biodiversity of life that call the Caño Chiquero and Caño Mora home. Your experienced guide will take you on a mystical, silent journey through the "highways" of Tortuguero National Park, where your only companion is the natural noise of the rainforest. Be still and listen as life communicates in a way that transcends human perception.

Hotel Experiences

The hotel offers half or full days of sea fishing. Pit your wits against an abundance of exotic fish including Rainbow Bass, Tarpon, several varieties of Snook and many more. This might not be a fair fight, though, as each boat will be equipped with an outrigger radio, fish-depth finders, GPS and swivel seats. Still, it's always nice to have a head start! A truly brilliant experience for any aspiring fisherman or fisherwoman!
You can't come here and not experience the frill of watching the Green Sea Turtle in its natural habitat. Tortuguero guides will escort you to a major nesting beach where you will have the opportunity to see The Green Sea Turtle lay their eggs or watch as their hatchlings make their way to the Ocean. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. *** Nesting July-October. Hatching September-October.
