We are really happy that the TripAdvisor forum members chose Bahia Tortuga for a meet up place. A good time was had by all I believe. It certainly was a great time for us. It's nice that you mentioned that you enjoyed some "familiar" food after being on the island a few days. That is a comment we hear often.... More

What a good time we had with the TripAdvisor Isla Forum group! It was fun to see you all finally putting faces to profile names. It must be some kind of cold back in Alaska.

During our week on Isla, we kept going back to Bahia Tortuga. Dan & Rhonda have created a really fun atmosphere with excellent food. Everyone is always happy at Bahia Tortuga! I highly recommend the Key Lime Pie and J.J.'s Mama's Chicken Enchiladas! We will be back soon!
