This tranquil river lodge sits in its own private reserve close to the pristine Tortuguero National Park. In addition to being one of the most stylish and characterful places to stay in this remote region of Costa Rica, Tortuga's private nature reserve adds an extra dimension to your stay, with over a mile of forest trails to be explored. Particularly enjoyable is the opportunity to discover these by night with a specialist guide, in search of nocturnal rainforest dwellers such as Red Eyed tree frogs, curious stick insects and porcupines. Explorations in the private reserve are complemented by classic Tortuguero activities including a motorised canoe safari along the wildlife-rich canals, and a visit to the colourful village of Tortuguero.
All of Tortuga's bright and contemporary rooms and suites offer river views from their balconies and terraces, complete with hammocks for relaxing contemplations of these beautiful surroundings. Large windows are screened by mosquito nets instead of glass to bring the sights and the sounds of the jungle closer, meaning you are likely to wake to the sound of howler monkeys and chattering birds. The swimming pool is edged by a riverside sun deck for some well-deserved rest time between activities, and the Green Turtle Restaurant serves up flavours of the Caribbean and Costa Rica in creative style, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.
