Laguna Lodge is a rain forest ecotourism lodge located on a narrow strip of land between the Caribbean Sea and Tortuguero Lagoon. The lodge offers 80 comfortable rooms, a swimming pool, and three bars – a main one on the edge of the lagoon and two others that are nearby the swimming pool area. The lodge is a good base for exploring Tortuguero National Park‘s slow moving jungle canals and tropical lowland forest. Near the lodge is access to the beach known as the most important nesting site for the green sea turtle throughout the Western Hemisphere.
Thanks to the dedication of the local community and the hotel sector, the number of specimens has increased considerably in the last several years. Other types of sea turtles, including the leatherback and hawksbill, also nest on this beach.
Enjoy guided boat tours into the surrounding canals and Tortuguero National Park, the pool, walking the private trails of the lodge and visit the open butterfly garden. Experience the best of the national park alongside the beauty of managed wilderness on the Laguna Lodge’s grounds.
