Tortuguero, 3 days / 2 nights

3 Days - 2 Nights | From: $289

Located along the northeastern coast of Costa Rica, the thinnest area and the wettest in the country, Tortuguero National Park is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a narrow strip of sand. Its isolation has protected it from all the evils of civilization.
Tortuguero is one of Costa Rica's most popular National Parks. It is a wilderness area with great biological variety. The wildlife is rich and diverse, with eleven different defined habitats. These include high rainforest, littoral woodland, slope forest, swamp forest, holillo forest, herbaceous swamp and herbaceous lagoon. Mammals, birds and fish are numerous.
Along these peaceful canals, natural or excavated by man, with calm waters and fringed by forest, we often see monkeys, sloths, iguanas, caimans, turtles and colorful tropical birds. The beaches of Tortuguero are the most important site in the western Caribbean for the nesting of the green turtles (July-October ). It is therefore not surprising that “Tortuguero“ is a derivative of the spanish name designating the turtles.
