Tortuguero is one of the best places in Costa Rica to experience nature and wildlife. Since it’s a little bit hard to get to as it sits in the Northern Caribbean with no road access, it takes a good amount of planning.
However, you can book a Tortuguero package that includes everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing! These packages depart only from San Jose, making it a great first stop after landing at San Jose International Airport.

Pachira Tortuguero Packages Discount FAQ
Where does Pachira pick up and drop off from?
Pachira’s Tortuguero packages are from San Jose only. They can pick up at any hotel in downtown San Jose or surrounding areas. Pachira doesn’t drop off in any other destinations, only San Jose and Guapiles if you plan to pick up your rental car after the trip. If you are picking up your rental car, please write the name of the car rental agency as your drop off location.
Pachira doesn’t pick up at vacation rentals so if you’re staying at one, you will need to find the closest hotel in San Jose to your location. We will inform you if the hotel you are staying at is included in the free transportation zone.

Can I Add a Turtle Watching Tour to my package?
Yes but you must book it at the lodge when you arrive and pay directly to them. We cannot add it to your package unfortunately. The cost is around $45 USD per person. Just ask the lodge’s front desk or your guide to help you schedule it.
Please note the turtle nesting season is approximately May to November.
Please remember to wear dark clothing only for the turtle nesting tour as it is at night, leaving around 5 PM.
This is the same for any other activity you would like to add such as ziplining, spa, etc.
How many nights do they offer in their packages?
The most popular package is the 2 days, 1 night Tortuguero package but you can stay as many nights as you like. The only thing is that they do not include more activities besides the guided boat tour, visit to Tortuguero town (non guided) and guided trail walk. If you wish to do other activities, you must pay for them.
What’s the difference between Pachira, Evergreen and Aninga?
All three lodges are owned by the same group, Pachira. All the rates are the same and they offer the same packages. However, the lodges do have a few differences.
Aninga is much smaller and more intimate. It is perfect for couples or anyone who doesn’t want to be around too many people. All their rooms are standalone bungalows.
Pachira is great for big groups or families as they have more facilities and the property is much bigger with a great pool. They have a few standalone bungalows and more standard rooms.
Evergreen has a mix of both types of rooms: standalone bungalows and rooms. This property has two sections: A quiet section they call Monkey Garden or the other section where the pool and bar is.
Does Pachira offer packages with a local flight instead of the shuttle and boat?
They only have packages with the shuttle and boat. If you’d like to fly, you can book the flights with Sansa and then book just accommodation, activities and meals with Pachira. There is a $5 USD discount per person for anyone not taking the complete transportation in or out (shuttle + boat in or shuttle + boat out). There is a $10 USD discount per person for anyone not taking complete transportation in and out (shuttle + boat in, shuttle + boat out).
