If you want a true nature experience in a truly paradise setting away from the tourist crowds, but want to enjoy running this lodge you should buy this lodge as a lifestyle small resort. This Hotel is located on two farms of 5.5 Ha and included a 10.5 Ha secondary forest which could be used as a carbon offset program. They are owned by the government as a type of concession. I recommend the small resort could be converted.
In the price all infrastructure is included and also all furniture. A great deal. The lodge is well positioned in the market place and is positioned the first on the trail with great views over the canal. Great potential for more cash flow opportunities.
Tortuguero Lodge is a charming lodge located in Barra de Pacuare, the most virgin sector of the Tortuguero canals, in the Caribbean of Costa Rica. It is located directly in front of the Madre de Di-os Lagoon, an extensive and unspoiled natural canal, surrounded by tropical rainforest, and separated from the sea by only a narrow peninsula of virgin and intact tropical jungle, the famous Pacuare Reserve. The tranquility of the water and the zone brings much wildlife to near the lodge. Giving our customers a special bond with the nature in a new open way. The barrio del Pacuare is one of the most important places for the arrival of leatherback, green and hawksbill turtles. Once a year, these incredible species comes to their birthplace to lay their eggs.
Surrounded by three Sea Turtle conservation projects, a 2400 hectares of Biological Reserve and a labyrinth of rivers and swamps, Tortuguero Lodge offers different packages with boat transport, guided excursion, contact with local people and labor of the wildlife protection organizations, and a special and unique tropical architecture. Our open-air dining pavilion and bungalows will let you watch the local wildlife and listen to the sounds only found in a tropical paradise.
Without a doubt, staying at Tortuguero Lodge means exploring and discovering the most unspoiled area of the Caribbean rainforests of Costa Rica and the Pacuare canals in their most authentic, unspoiled and natural state. The flora and fauna in the area is rich, wonderful and unique, presenting several species in danger of extinction, such as several sea turtle species, like the Green turtle, the Carey turtle, the Leatherback turtle, as well as mammals and birds as rare as the Jaguar as well as the Tapir, and one of the rarest birds the beautiful Agami Storch.

I hereby declare that I know Mr. Peter Van Hussen, owner of Eco-Realtor Costa Rica Company, for more than 5 years.
During all that time, Peter has characterized himself, among other personal merits, for been a person who loves nature and for working actively in projects, programs, commissions and working groups related to nature preservation and to environmental conservation in general.
During all the years that I worked as an environmental advisor for the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce and for the Municipality of Garabito County, both located in Jacó City, I could observe that Peter was regularly invited to be part of projects and working commissions that had to do –among other topics- with the reduction of the environmental pollution existing in the Garabito County due to untreated sewage waters, with conservation and restoration of the watersheds that exist in the mountain zone of the county, with the problems that exist in the coastal zone, with ecotourism development, with protection and development of the nearby national parks and equivalent reserves, and in general with sustainable development of Garabito.
In all these commissions and working groups, Peter stands out for his excellent ideas and for his very active participation, and for the personal experience he demonstrated because of the jobs he has had and because of the many trips he has taken in his life.

Peter was personally recommended to me by one of his peers – a successful real estate professional – and I quickly knew why. I realized that Peter’s ethics towards responsible stewardship of land was exactly what I was looking for in marketing my unusual property of virgin forest. He listened carefully and understood my desire to search for a buyer intending to preserve the forest in perpetuity, and he already had the connections to advertise to this type of client. I am very impressed by the weight Peter places in responsibility towards a sustainable environment as an integral part of his business.David Reuland
