Tortuguero (National Park)

Due to its geologic origins, the region containing the Barra del Colorado National Wildlife Refuge and Tortuguero National Park forms an extensive floodplain made up of highly scenic, interconnected canals, waterways and lagoons. One of the rainiest areas in the country, this region is rich in biodiversity. These factors allow visitors to this extensive network of waterways the opportunity to tour and explore this marvelous world - unique for its peacefulness and natural luxuriance - by boat, canoe or kayak.

It is a truly relaxing experience to tour the canals and take in the exquisite green of the incredible tropical vegetation, reflected in liquid mirrors everywhere.

 

The 22kms of protected beaches of Tortuguero are the largest nesting sites for sea turtles in the Western Hemisphere. Four species nest here from april to october: green turtles, most numerous, leatherbacks, hawksbills, and loggerheads.
