Turtle Beach Lodge is a secluded resort spanning 175 acres. It encompasses miles of jungle trails, a meandering private canal and a half mile of isolated beach on the Caribbean Sea.
Our lodge provides highly trained staff and guides who ease you into an extraordinary jungle experience. Tortuguero has incredible biological variety due to the existence of eleven different habitats, including rainforest, swamps, beaches and lagoons. The beaches are a key nesting ground for endangered sea turtles, including Hawksbill, Loggerheads, Green and Leatherbacks. Manatees, caiman and crocodiles live in the canals and the jungle is home to endangered jaguars, three species of monkeys (spider, howler, and white-faced Capuchin) and three-toed sloths. Basilisk lizards and tree frogs inhabit the area, along with 375 species of birds. There are more than 400 species of trees and approximately 2,200 species of plants.
Return from your explorations each day and relax on the beach, in a hammock by the pool or perhaps kayak through the canals. Play chess, cards or have a cool drink in our bar rancho and enjoy a leisurely dinner with your fellow travelers. Whether you are seeking adventure, relaxation or a combination of the two, the unique location and diversity of Turtle Beach Lodge provides an unforgettable experience for all.
For the GPS crowd, we are located at N10° 37' 27.62" W83° 32' 25.28", and yes, geocachers, there is at least one geocache in the jungles of Tortuguero!
We are a viable part of the community and proudly support local organizations, donating annually to COTERC to support turtle research and helping to build their museum. We also provide support for the volunteers of Global Vision International. We rebuilt the school in the neighboring pueblo of San Francisco and donated musical instruments and the money for traditional clothing to form a children's dance troupe there. We reguarly donate to the police department and the school in the Village of Tortuguero. Arrangements can be made in advance if you want to combine your vacation with us with volunteer opportunities in either village.
