Costa Rica’s rainforest, with its lush, dense canopies, exotic wildlife and exhilarating eco-adventures, has captivated travelers for generations. On the Caribbean coast, tucked between the Tortuguero River and gorgeous plantation-style gardens, Tortuga Lodge & Gardens offers an award-winning getaway unlike any hotel in Costa Rica. Just outside your door, the pristine rainforest surroundings beckon you to explore the mysteries of this complex ecosystem.
A river lodge built in harmony with its tropical environment, our hotel offers a tranquil, relaxing and exclusive experience. Each of our 29 rooms features sweeping views of the Tortuguero River and luxury amenities. Thoughtful guest comforts range from free Wi-Fi and nightly turndown service to rubber boots, walking sticks and umbrellas for your rainforest excursions.
As the only hotel in Tortuguero with its own private nature reserve, we offer an array of adventures and activities. Daily nature walks are led by experienced naturalist guides, who also lead tours to turtle nesting sites, boat rides and kayak trips up the Tortuguero River, twilight nature hikes and more. Free fishing poles and tranquil sitting areas and hammocks make it easy to relax and enjoy the surroundings in solitude.
Our Terrace Rooms have everything you need to make your visit memorable. Experience the comfort of your room after returning from busy days in the National Park or our own private reserve. These rooms have partial views of the canal, the gardens and the forest.
