Pachira Lodge

Near Tortuguero National Park
Tortuguero , Costa Rica http://www.pachiralodge.com/
506-2256-7080

Just outside Tortuguero National Park on the northeast coast of Costa Rica, the Pachira Lodge sits on a thin strip of land surrounded by a network of canals. With more than 100 bungalows, two restaurants and a spa, the resort gives guests access to a tremendous amount of fauna and wildlife. The endangered green sea turtle is the star attraction and the nesting period from July to September remains the peak of the holiday season. Vacations are packaged with three types available, but each allows for outside activities like deep sea fishing, zip lining across forest canopies, or getting pampered in the spa.
