Spacious and spread out, our gardens in Tortuguero are “plantation style,” mimicking the banana plantation big houses that dotted the Caribbean Coast of old, or of plantations in the American South.
Even if you don't see any wildlife (highly unlikely) you can roam between collections of palms and heliconia and Mountain Almond Trees, the primary food source for the Great Green Macaw.You will find benches and hammocks on the far southern point, where you may want to sit quietly and see what Mother Nature offers.
Your menu includes the freshest local ingredients simply prepared. Menus vary to include the freshest and best ingredients available. The food is what a Costa Rican grandmother would cook if she was also a creative and contemporary professional chef.
Tortuga Lodge is located on the north east coast of Costa Rica, 47.5 KM or 29.5 miles from the Nicaraguan border, as the crow flies. The Lodge sits on the river bank directly across from an airstrip.
It is 1 mile from the mouth of the Tortuguero River and about a ten-minute boat ride from the town.
You cannot drive to Tortuguero because there are no roads; the only way to get there is by a combination of bus and boat or domestic flight.
