Plan the Ultimate Tortuguero Vacation at Pachira Lodge

Are you dreaming of a cozy hotel surrounded by the rainforest and beaches on all sides? If so, make Pachira Lodge Hotel the starting point of your upcoming Costa Rica vacation.

Pachira Lodge is in Tortuguero, in the Caribbean North (With Tortuguero) area of the Limón region. The hotel premises are a mere 5-minute boat ride from Tortuguero National Park, and this boat ride is provided completely complimentary by hotel staff during your stay.

International visitors can access the hotel by first getting a transfer to the port in Limon, which takes about 3 ½ hrs. Once you arrive at the port in Limon the hotel will then pick you up for the scenic ride through the canals to Tortuguero. Even though this journey takes a while it is part of the journey to get to the remote town of Tortuguero.

Alternatively you can fly from San José International Airport (SJO) to Tortuguero Domestic Airport, which takes about 1 hr 10 min.

Explore the town of Tortuguero and its many surrounding nature attractions. The hotel is popular during the green sea turtle nesting season, as Tortuguero is one of just a handful of places in the world where you can see the region’s biggest attraction. This event typically takes place from July to September, while the baby sea turtles hatch and return to the sea in the wintertime.

Winding canals and dense jungles characterize the area. The hotel itself is designed in a way that evokes these natural surroundings, ensuring you always feel like you’re in the heart of the Caribbean tropics. Wood and bamboo furniture can be found in every room, and common areas are filled with plants and flowers native to the surrounding rainforest.

Dine on Caribbean cuisine at the on site restaurant, or venture into town to try dishes from local restaurants. Swim in the hotel’s turtle-shaped pool and hot tub. An on-site bar is also available for sipping cool drinks by the poolside.

In addition to its rooms and on site activities, Pachira Lodge allows guests to book their stays as hotel and adventure tour packages. Follow a knowledgeable guide to popular nearby locations like beaches and the jungle, and experience these remote locales through an expert’s eyes. Pachira Lodge’s tours are unforgettable experiences for tourists and Ticos alike.

All-inclusive stays come with three free guided tours. These tours are for Tortuguero National Park, the town of Tortuguero, and the hotel’s own private walking trails.

Other guided tours like turtle nesting, fishing, a sunrise canal boat tour, zip lining, and canopy tours can be added onto your stay for an additional fee. For true luxury, book a soothing spa treatment to ease aching muscles after a long day of jungle exploration.

While planning your trip to the Pachira Lodge, take the opportunity to check out some of the nearby sights and attractions. Canals, rainforests, and lively towns await in this charming area of Costa Rica.

Nesting Season for the Green Sea Turtles

The main attraction in Tortuguero is its namesake sea turtles. Green sea turtles flock to beaches within the region during the summer, coming up from the sea to lay their eggs during nesting season. Later in the year, typically around December and January, the baby turtles hatch.

Nature and wildlife lovers won’t want to miss out on this rare sight. Plan a trip with an authorized tour guide in Tortuguero, as accessing the nesting beaches is illegal outside of tours to prevent disruptions to the turtles.

Visit the Town of Tortuguero

Many of the region’s best restaurants serving authentic Tico dishes can be found in Tortuguero, as can boutique stores with handmade crafts. Pick up a few souvenirs to commemorate your trip, or check out local entertainment like live music.

Tortuguero is also surrounded by the rainforest, making it a convenient starting destination for adventure tours. See local wildlife and explore breathtaking vistas at locations like the Barra del Colorado National Wildlife Refuge.

Tortuguero Canals Boat Tour

The Tortuguero Canals Boat Tour is one of the best things to do for nature lovers in all of Limón. This 4-hour tour begins with a scenic van ride down the coast, where you’ll pass by secluded beaches. Stop at a local vendor to enjoy a snack of refreshing fruits.

Next, load into the boat and take a tour of Tortuguero’s canal system. Look for wildlife and take in the relaxing atmosphere of the rainforest.

"The most unique place. The wake-up calls were a knock on the door with tea, coffee or hot chocolate or the howler monkeys calling their families together. The pool and the bar were awesome. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.The food was great too. We went on a boat tour that was so educational and fun! Would definitely recommend this place to my friends. Hope to go again sometime."
