We can't stop telling our friends and family how fantastic our trip to Tortugal was. We are sailors who flew down to explore for future. We will definitely return! The beauty of the jungle , sounds and birds greeted us every morning. We had no problem with Mosquitos. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was great!
We loved Casita Elegante with it's huge patio. We didn't want to leave!
