Tortuga Lodge


Tortuguero (Tortuguero, Costa Rica)


Well designed lodge on the edge of the river. Lovely outdoor eating area, pretty pool with loungers and hammock area and games room.


1 boat trip is included in a 2-night stay but additional tours (birdwatching, transfer to the village, wildlife viewing) can be booked locally.


27 rooms, set on 2 floors, with netted windows and ceiling fans. All with river view and terrace with hammock. Junior Suites are slightly larger with 2 king size beds, the Suite is very large and suitable for a family.

When to go

All year round but January to March can be busy. For the opportunity to see Green turtles laying their eggs you should visit from June to October.

Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteTortuga has a great location, especially in terms of closeness to the airstrip. The room was exactly as we expected and was very comfortable. The staff in the restaurant, bar and all the guides were really good. There were a few excursions included in our stay and they were OK and there were additional excursions you could pay for but, unless you really questioned the reception staff, it was hard to find out what they were. We did manage to find the best trip (Laguna 4) because we happened to see a book lying around which gave details of other trips but there were other disappointed guests we spoke to who had no idea that other trips were available. So overall impression was generally good, but the reception/front of house staff need to improve communication and be more helpful to make sure the guests get the most out of their stay.Close Quote - SJ (February 2024)
