About Us / Contact Us
We started this website in 2007 as Peace Corps
Volunteers living in Tortuguero. We noticed the large
hotels on the outskirts of Tortuguero had well
developed websites and attracted the majority of
visitors. We wanted to give the local, family-owned
businesses in Tortuguero Village the opportunity to let
the world know about what they can offer as well.
However in those days there was very limited
internet connection in the town, and only a couple
businesses in the village had a website. So working
with the Village Development Association, we invited
all the businesses and organizations in Tortuguero to
submit information, we took pictures, and did our best
to build them websites. We developed a central
website, Tortuguerovillage.com, and connected all the
individual websites through it.
While we are no longer volunteers in Tortuguero,
we continue to maintain the community website. It is
not for profit and all of the advertising proceeds go
toward hosting and continued development.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions,
especially updated information and any errors you
Thanks for visiting the site.
Things change, so PLEASE send us feedback about information that
may be incorrect on our website (preferably including the correct
information). Obviously we are not professional web type people, so
any feedback on how we can make the site better is most welcome.
Unfortunately we don’t have enough time to give timely advice on
where to stay or how to get here.
If you are a business or organization in Tortuguero that doesn’t have a
website, we would love to help you develop one, just let us know. If
you already have a website, we would love to include a link to you on
tortuguerovillage.com. There is no charge for this service.
