From the hotel premises you walk directly onto a beautiful beach. The region is notorious for the amount of rain, but we were lucky to have three days of... More

We had a very nice stay at the Turtle Beach lodge. Very friendly staff and a nice pool. This lodge seemed to be rather expensive but our price included all excellent tours with a guide, transportation, and food so it was a great value. We saw lots of wildlife including a basilisk lizard running across the water and then getting... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The area of Tortuguero is rightfully called The Amazon of Costa Rica because access is only by boat on Jungle Rivers. Turtle Beach Lodge, 5 miles north of the town of Tortuguero, is a secluded resort spanning 175 acres with miles of jungle trails, a meandering private canal, and a half mile of beach adjoining still more isolated beaches. The lodge accommodates approximately 80 guests; assisted by a well trained staff and guides who ease you into an exciting jungle experience. Stay in the beautifully landscaped cabinas, swim in our turtle shaped pool, relax in the adjacent shady hammock hut with food and drink from the restaurant and bar. ... more   less
