Property Information

Tortugal is near Castillo San Felipe easily reached using one of our free kayaks. Breezes flow into Tortugal as the property is a peninsula located upriver from the very busy town of Fronteras; creating an extraordinarily healthy environment, yet close enough to services to be able to walk there,  Tortugal's bay is perfect for swimming and diving from the platform to the floating sun deck furnished with loungers and chairs. Vehicle parking is in a private lot on the eastern side of the bridge where guests will be met and brought to Tortugal (5 minute ride).  Guests are also received at the municipal dock when travelling by bus. Use of kayaks, excellent wifi throughout, EcoFiltro water available at no extra charge. Library, homemade food, dog, cat  to pet. Beautiful walk to town through hardwoods and cacao (chocolate). Cabins, chalets and rooms have river or jungle views with private bathrooms. Rooms are kept cool with overhead fans and thick native roofs. Tortugal is one of very few places on the planet where one can swim in clean, clear waters and sleep in the beauty and quiet of an artesinal surrounding.
