Best Tortuguero Lodges
Tortuguero is home to the annual mass sea turtle nesting, a labyrinth of rivers and wildlife, and Tortuguero National Park.

Every year Tortuguero National Park attracts turtles and turtle-lovers worldwide to its beaches for the annual arribada or turtle nesting. It’s no surprise that the majority of hotels in the Tortuguero area are eco-lodges – often called the Amazon of Costa Rica, Tortuguero’s winding canals and dense jungles contain a plethora of animal species. However, even those who prefer a bit more exclusivity than a rainforest eco-lodge will find something to love about the beauty of Tortuguero and the variety of hotels. This is a favorite location for nature, bird, and wildlife lovers! By staying at one of the amazing eco-lodges in the area, guests have an opportunity to not only observe the amazing flora and fauna that bring them there, but protect the natural beauty of Tortuguero as well! Surrounding yourself with the natural world is easy to do with a visit to Tortuguero.
