Tortuguero is a region in Costa Rica famous for its wildlife and rainforest environment. However, there’s another reason worth visiting Tortuguero -the lodges and ecolodges that exist here, many of which have been built by awarding-winning architects.
Tortuguero village is situated on a sandbar island, separated from the mainland by the Tortuguero River and bordering the Caribbean Sea.
This area is renowned for its navigable canals that run through the rainforest, and has earned the nickname of ‘Central America’s Amazon’.
The beaches around Tortuguero are important nesting sites for four species of turtle, including two endangered species.
The village can be reached only by boat or airplane, and is sustained almost entirely by ecotourism.
