  • All rooms do not have air conditioning or television so you can appreciate the sounds of the tropical rain forest.
  • The service style is personalized, informal, caring. No background music.
  • Our food is what a Costa Rican grandmother would cook if she was also a creative and contemporary professional chef.
  • The atmosphere in our lodge is quiet, laid back and tranquil, facing the Tortuguero River. No background music.
  • Our bar serves Caribbean themed cocktails, and we don’t mean piña coladas, though we make a good one of those too.

About Tortuguero and Tortuguero National Park.

History
There is evidence that native people visited Tortuguero during the 5 month nesting season to hunt the Atlantic Green Sea Turtle since way before Europeans arrived in the Western Hemisphere. By the mid 1800’s there was thriving trade in turtle meat, oil and shells, much of which was exported to the United States and Europe.

Today Tortuguero, still only accessible by boat or light aircraft, has become a mecca for nature travelers.

The Park Today

Originally intended to protect a major nesting beach of the Atlantic Green sea turtle, Tortuguero National Park now protects 51,870 acres, one of the most biologically rich and last large areas of tropical rain forests in Central America. Eleven habitats are found in the park. Among the wild-life you may encounter are three species of monkeys (Spider, Howler, and White-faced), Three-toed Sloths, river otters, caimans, iguanas,river turtles, Basilisk Lizards, Poison Dart Frogs, as well as more than 320 species of birds including all six species of kingfishers found in the new world, three species of toucans, eight species of parrots, and other neotropical species such as the Slaty-tailed Trogon, White-collared Manakin and Purple-throated Fruitcrow.

no smoking Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This means that you have to be taken by boat across the river to the beach. Boats are available most of the time but not all the time, you may have to wait (10 minutes – 2 hours) for a boat to return to the lodge before you can be taken across.
Boats are NOT available to take you to a place where you can smoke at night. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
