Here’s how you can customize your trip:
For Health-Minded Travelers

Designed for two people, the package includes accommodations in a Standard Room, half-board for two guests (daily breakfast and lunch), four individual morning yoga sessions, and one reviving spa treatment at the on-site Agua Spa and Yoga Center.

For Those Who Want To Unwind and Indulge
Craving a laid-back island vacation with excellent dining options? Casa Las Tortugas offers:
Mingle: Although the island is quiet, there are plenty of opportunities to mingle at the hotel’s on-site Mandarina Beach Club, a lively farm-to-table restaurant and lounge. Most of the social action happens here; guests enjoy long meals by the beach, linger around the restaurant, and lounge in the sand.
Eat: The cuisine is a deliciously unique blend of Argentinian, hearty Italian, with a dash of island flavor, inspired by Argentinian Chef Jorge Melul and Casa Las Tortugas owner Francesca Golinell. The hotel will showcase Chef Melul’s expertise in homemade breads and pastries with a newly constructed bakery to launch before 2016.

If you love water sports and outdoor adventure, there are plenty of exciting things to do at the hotel, including:
