Picked up early this AM and nice to know there are others going with us to Torteguero. In fact, one of the people on the bus actually went to my high school and no one went there. That was a trip and so cool to compare notes on classes (we both had beach for PE). We drove until we stopped at Selva Tropical for lunch. This is a location that a lot of tours stop at for a meal. They have a butterfly area, cool gardens, and the food was pretty good as well. From there we drove to a boat dock and off we went to the lodge. Turtle Bay Lodge is the only one in the Torteguero area that is on the beach. Very cool there, ocean, black lagoon, canal, huge plants ( prehistoric), all kinds of animals. A nice walk on the beach to the black lagoon. There is a farm near the lagoon, and the cattle drink out of the ocean.
