  • We were 3 or 4 days within our honeymoon trip. The feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by jungle and nature, is amazing. We saw overnight spawn to a sea turtle, and it was very exciting for me. If you like nature and enjoy the animals, it is a must-see in Costa Rica.

Where to stay in Tortuguero

Eco-lodges are all the rage in Tortuguero, with a handful of luxurious but environmentally friendly options offering waterfront views as well as complete immersion in the surrounding jungle. You'll pay a high price for these high-end eco-lodges, but will be rewarded with luxury in memorable natural surroundings. For something much more budget-friendly, look south of the national park, where you can stay at a cozy bed and breakfast or pitch your tent at a campground.
