None of these hotels have paid to be included. We recognize that the fact that we own and operate three lodges brings into question our objectivity. On the other hand, it gives us a deep understanding of what it takes to provide truly distinguished lodging.

FEATURED HOTELS:
Tortuga Lodge
  Tortuga Lodge
Named "favorite family resort" in April 2005 by Travel & Leisure Family magazine. Owned and operated by Costa Rica Expeditions. "Situated on 50 acres of private land on Costa Rica's northeast Caribbean coast, Tortuga was our first hotel. It is now our newest hotel. Everything we have learned about designing nature lodges over the last 11 years has gone into the remodelling of Tortuga Lodge. What we learned can be summarized in three words, 'Reflect the place.'" -Michael Kaye
