Turtle Watching Tour (in season)
The Atlantic Green Turtles have been coming to the Caribbean beaches of Tortuguero for centuries to lay their eggs. Much has been researched and written about them. When the baby turtles grow to adulthood they return to the same beach where they were hatched. At Turtle Beach Lodge you have the unique opportunity to witness these magical events! During the prime season from June through early October we offer nightly turtle watching tours with Tortuguero National Park guides.
Tortuguero Town Tour
The town of Tortuguero has a fairly basic life style. Wash is done by hand and hung on trees, bushes, and occasionally a clothes line. With the frequency of showers, sometimes it hangs there for days. There are no cars and as you walk through the town you will find children at play like anywhere else in the world. The play will be imaginative and simple like it was before television and computers, though internet HAS made it to Tortuguero and there is even an internet cafe. There are a few shops and restaurants in Tortuguero and be sure to walk the little foot paths among the houses. These paths are the roads of the town. To venture down them is to discover rustic charm as if from another time.
