Aninga Lodge sits right in the heart of the mangroves of the watery wilderness of Tortuguero National Park and is accessible only by boat.

Connected by a series of raised walkways are 32 simple but spacious and comfortable cabins with private bathrooms and balconies. The living is simple here, as one might expect from such a remote location. Entertainment is provided by the prolific surrounding wildlife, including numerous birds, sloths, lizards and howler monkeys.

Buffet-style meals are served in the lodge’s restaurant and bar, and there’s a turtle-shaped pool as well as a spa. Bi-lingual tours of the national park and fishing are available, and if you're visiting between July and September you can witness the unforgettable arrival of green sea turtles.

Our Expert's Opinion

We love Aninga’s more intimate vibe: it is one of the smaller lodges of Tortuguero with a close to nature feel.
