Tortuga Lodge and Gardens

Tortuga Lodge & Gardens is situated on 146 acres of private land on Costa Rica's northeast Caribbean coast. View the wildlife of Tortuguero National Park and explore its back water creeks and lagoons by boat with your Tortuguero Naturalist Guide, while staying in the comfort of your River View Deluxe Rooms or River View Penthouse Suite. 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. You cannot drive to Tortuguero as there are no roads; the only way to get there is by a combination of bus and boat or domestic flight. The all-pervasive presence of the water blurs distinctions. As your boat moves slowly through the forest, you are immersed in a world where the forest merges with the rivers and the water becomes part of the tree. Land and water, indoors and outdoors lose part of their meaning.
