The Tortuga Lodge & Gardens was the first comfortable lodge built in the area and remains the most comfortable place to stay, with superior rooms (spacious screened, cross-ventilated, large bathrooms with hot showers, and fans) rocking chairs and hammocks in covered walkways outside all the rooms, an airy bar-restaurant built on the riverside, with veranda dining next to the water, and an adjoining swimming pool.


A solar energy system is used here, which is one of the reasons that the lodge has been recognized with ecotourism awards. Tortuga Lodge's dinning room and bar feature a shaded veranda; the dining has been called "the best in Costa Rica" by many of its guests. Tortuga Lodge's restaurant starts at the river dock and reluctantly moves inland.

The lodge is on 20 hectares of attractively landscaped gardens with ornamental tropical trees, palms, shrubs, orchids, and other flowers that attract birds, lizards, and butterflies.
