Costa Rica is one of the top "tourism brand" countries in the world. Tortuguero is among the top 3 destinations in Costa Rica and growing quickly. Turtle Beach Lodge is the most unique lodge in Tortuguero, it is completely isolated from the other lodges in the middle of the jungle with the sea on one side and only accessed by boat on jungle rivers and our own spectacular private canal.
Turtle Beach Lodge is a remote and tranquil hotel located just outside the village of Tortuguero, Costa Rica. The lodge is bordered on the east by 1/2 mile of black volcanic sand beach and the Caribbean sea. The west side is 1/2 mile of jungle river called Cano Palma, the most popular canal to take tourists in the Tortuguero area. To the north and south are miles and miles of lowland jungle. Within these boundaries the lodge is nestled in 175 acres of lowland rainforest jungle with spectacular gardens and landscape throughout.
We have a fleet of 10 well maintained boats housed in a beautiful dock area in our charming lagoon. The boats with roofs and side curtains carry the tourists to and from the lodge. The open boats are used for the canal and town tours to allow full views of the amazing wildlife and incredible reflections on the black water canals. There are kayaks and canoes in a separate lagoon for safe and easy access away from the motored boats.
The lodge has a generator capable of powering the entire lodge in case of power outages. The lodge has phone and Internet service. We have a large professional kitchen to put out fine meals that get good reviews by our guests. Large walk in freezers and refrigerator are located in a locked storage area at the dock for handy imposing of food and supplies
TBL was opened in 2001 after 10 years of development. By the year 2008 the lodge was hosting over 10,000 guests per year, most staying at least 2 nights. The guest numbers have declined slightly since the world economy has declined. Fortunately the lodge's good reputation with guests and travel agencies has helped our profits remain strong. The lodge has remained profitable for years.
Unlike most of Costa Rica the lodge enjoys two high seasons. From November through March people come from all over the world for the warmth, relaxation and to see the flora and fauna of this unique lowland jungle region. June through September draws tourists to watch the many thousands of sea turtles that nest on the beaches of Tortuguero.
The lodge has been owned by the same family since opening and it has been a wonderful and rewarding experience. It is past retirement time and health issues make it time to find someone to take the lodge to the next level, I will be glad to share those ideas and dreams with anyone interested in this beautiful lodge in a most spectacular part of the world.
