Nestled on our private Protected Biological Reserve, our exclusive beach-front boutique Event Center is the perfect setting to host your all-inclusive destination wedding, yoga or wellness retreat, business conference, and family reunion.

Uniquely located on a small cliff over-looking the Pacific Ocean, with the most extraordinary views all day long, and the most stunning sunsets you have ever seen.

Sitting on your own private deck, you can enjoy the daily scarlet macaw fly-bys, the raucous toucans, and those mischievous monkeys as they make their rounds through the property.

Access to the beach below is an easy 5-minute walk down the road where you can stroll for miles on a deserted beach.

From July to December, the Olive Ridley turtles return to our beach to lay their eggs. Come work with our conservation team, patrol the area on the nightly beach walks, transport the eggs to the protected nursery hatchery, and be part of the successful return of this endangered species.

First and by far our most important suggestion: don’t change a thing! We really had a wonderful time and want to thank you again for all you did to make it work. The accommodations were superb. The property is one of a kind and truly amazing. Kudos to you, Frank, and the entire staff for keeping the Discovery Channel in business. Keep watching and grading those sunsets!

Chef Dave was a great asset. It was relaxing not have to plan grocery store trips or nights out to eat. His food and cooking skills are top notch. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

Again, thank you very much for a wonderful trip. And thank you for sitting down and sharing a little of yourself with all of us. That was unexpected and appreciated.

What an amazing place! Casa Tortuga is authentic Costa Rica with a luxurious atmosphere. The open-air feel and beautiful grounds are like a dream. Jannette and Frank are informative and helpful with all your needs. Frank keeps the place in great working condition, and Jannette is the best tour guide around.

This part of Costa Rica is what dreams are made of. Thank you for a vacation of a lifetime. You can’t beat the beauty of Reserva Playa Tortuga. It is where nature meets luxury. Amazing place and would highly recommend for everyone – couples, families, work groups – there is something for everyone. We will miss you!

Casa Tortuga to me is translated as Serenity in Paradise. The accommodations are beyond 5 star, and you truly feel as if you’re safely nestled within the deep jungle.

The diversity of wildlife on the property was amazing! There are resident iguanas that seem to playfully come out to say “hello”, a pair of scarlet macaws that fly by daily to greet you with their resonating and powerful calls, toucans that rest in the palms at the pool, and countless more species of beautiful creatures.

Casa Tortuga is a treat to all of the senses, and although stimulating has a way of inducing a unique inner peace and comfort. We loved the beautiful beach where the jungle meets the sea. The views are staggering. We also hiked Nauyaca Waterfalls, zip-lined in Hacienda Baru, fished and had a nighttime bug tour on this 75-acre biological preserve by a resident biologist studying the local sea turtles.

However, we would’ve been completely blessed and content simply resting at this magical estate and enjoying the views. This magic will touch every heart from 2 to 102 and all agree (16 of us) that it exceeds all expectations. Thank you Jannette, Frank and Chef Dave for all of your efforts in accommodating our every need!

What a beautiful stay in Casa Tortuga. It was a perfect way to vacation with our family of 14 that included 5 teenagers. The wildlife, swimming pool, hikes, and easy accessibility to National Parks made it ideal.

Jannette and Frank made our stay carefree and comfortable. Thanks so much! The dinner prepared by Chef Dave was delicious – much appreciated.
