Tortuguero National Park
Discover mystical canals and pristine rainforests
This National Park is the absolute best place in Costa Rica to encounter a variety of wildlife. It consists of a large system of waterways irrigating the majority of the Northern Caribbean area of the country. Because of its remote location and difficult access this pristine rainforest remains virtually untouched and it is home to many animals such as sloths, monkeys, crocodiles, toucans, trogons, water birds, colorful frogs and butterflies. This National Park is also the prime nesting site for the green and leatherback sea turtles from July to October, during which months an optional turtle nesting night tour will be available. This is a truly unique experience that you will never forget. All of our activities keep in mind preserving nature and promoting sustainable tourism. Our top priority is to maintain the pristine beauty of Costa Rica while providing a memorable experience for our customers.
Here are some things you can expect to see and do during these expeditions:
We will drive to the Caño Blanco embarking area where we will access the main canal to go north into the National Park. There will be a visit to the small, but colorful village.
We then embark on a Canoe trip into the mysterious jungle where you will explore the lagoons and hidden canals, as we go deeper into the forest the canals become smaller and the surrounding wildlife gets closer. You can expect to receive plenty of good information from your naturalist guide and lots of opportunities for photos. We work hard at making this tour a fun learning experience.
