Tortuga Lodge and Gardens, Tortuguero

Unless you’re an Atlantic green sea turtle, the only way to arrive on Tortuguero is by boat or light plane. It is a special, remote place with pristine beaches and undisturbed rainforest – which is probably why the turtles choose to swim hundreds of miles to nest here. Tortuguero is also a national park that includes no less than 11 different habitats – home to species as diverse as spider, howler and white-faced monkeys, as well as sloths, river otters, caiman, Jesus Christ lizards and over 320 species of birds. Including six species of kingfisher, plus parrots, toucans, trogons, manakins and fruitcrows.

So, as a nature traveller, Tortuga Lodge - with its river views and rustic jungle elegance - could easily be the highlight of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Costa Rica.

  • From beginning to end the service I have received has been exceptional. I booked a bespoke family holiday to Australia that needed quite a lot of work, all completed with efficiency and skill. Covid then hit and my holiday was cancelled. Within 7 days, I received a full refund into my bank account. A company that can be trusted to treat customers fairly, coupled with outstanding and personable service means that I would not hesitate to recommend them. I have previously used this company for a trip to South America and my experience on that occasion was identical. A great travel company.
