National Park

The Tortuguero National Park is the main nature tourist destination in Costa Rica. Located in the North Caribbean, it is a vast wetland of primary forests bathed by a wild sea, which reminds us of the beginnings of the world. The park has 405 bird species, half of all the birds in Costa Rica. Its beaches are the nesting haven of seven kinds of sea turtles, therefore its name: Tortuguero. The park area has 3 types of forest: Humid Tropical, Humid Premontane and Tropical Montane. In addition, there are 52 kinds of fresh water fish and 160 species of mammals.

Turtles

The beach at Tortuguero is the most important nesting site of the green turtle. Thanks to the effort of the community of Tortuguero, the hotel sector and the National Park management, the number of specimens has increased considerably in the last years and it its about to go off the list of animals in danger of extinction. Other types of turtles, such as the leatherback sea turtle and the hawksbill turtle also nest on this beach, although in smaller numbers. Laguna Lodge offers nesting observation tours from mid-July thru October.

Caribbean Sea

The Caribbean Sea is part of our gardens, a 5 kilometer stretch of beach with black sand and strong waves.

"Our experience was wonderful. This place is immaculate, simple and beautiful. Loved it, especially when the rains came in the jungle at 2 AM and lasted for about an hour. It was peaceful and pleasant. The young lady at the desk was very helpful in helping me place a phone call with a card I had bought in San Jose. I was having a problem but she kept trying until she got the call through. We loved the Laguna Lodge and would recommend staying there. "

"This was our second stop on a five stop two week tour of Costa Rica. Of all of the places that we went, this was the most rustic of all, but the very best of all for wildlife. I would go back in a minute. we were there in early March of 2007 and loved it. Laguna Lodge is not a luxury resort but still nice for Costa Rica! I would not miss a boat trip, as this is the very best part of all! here is a link to some of the images that I shot while there, you will need to cut and paste each link as they are broken but certainly worth the time to look!







Do yourself a favor and visit this wonderful National park. and Laguna Lodge is not a bad place to stay!"
