Evergreen Lodge

Access to this delightful eco lodge is only by light aircraft or by boat. Situated in 2 hectares of grounds, this makes for a relaxing stay in the heart of the rainforest. You are just 5 minutes from the entrance of Tortuguero National Park, but the lodge also has its own trails and canopy walk too so you don’t have to venture far. Fall asleep to the sounds of the forest, or spend part of your day sunbathing by the turtle shaped pool, or exploring the gardens. The attractive main areas are a good place to meet and relax with other guests. There are several restaurants and the bar is a popular place to quench your thirst at the end of the day. There is a spa available for pampering after a hard day exploring the surrounding area.

 

Tortuguero-channelsWhy go to Evergreen Lodge?

Tortuguero is considered to be one of the most exotic regions in the world with an incredible variety of flora and fauna. This is the place that first springs to mind when thinking of turtles, hence the name Tortuguero. During July and October it is possible to see green turtles laying their eggs, time it right, and you could also witness the hatchlings breaking free from the nest and making straight for the ocean. You are unlikely to see turtles here outside of the nesting season. There are no roads in this area, All transportation and tours are done by boat adding to the remote feel and magical quality of this region.
