Tortuguero National Park Adventure

Located on Costa Rica’s North Caribbean Coast, this protected area (along with Corcovado National Park) constitute the wildest and most remote areas of our country, supporting a stunning variety of wildlife just waiting for you to discover it.

Tortuguero is a very intricate and vast network of waterways bordering our Caribbean Coast. It is like a Tropical Venice. This evergreen paradise owes its name to the fact that during more than three months every year, thousands of Green Sea-Turtles come to these coasts to lay their eggs in an attempt to perpetuate their specie. All sea-turtles are considered to be endangered, so this National Park was created as an effort to protect them from human abuse and exploitation.

Day 1: Early departure from San Jose. Breakfast along the way. Stop at a banana plantation and processing plant (except Sundays). Continue navigating on a series of rivers and natural & man-made waterways as you approach Tortuguero National Park. After midday arrival to your selected Lodge for lunch. Late-afternoon visit to the village of Tortuguero and the Caribbean Conservation Center and Museum. Dinner at your Lodge.

Day 2: Sunrise Tour to the narrow canals of the park. It lasts approximately 1½ hours and it is perhaps the highlight of your visit to Tortuguero. Return to your Lodge for breakfast.
