Tortuguero National Park, Cahuita Reviews - Write a Review
You have two options. One is motorboat the other is kayak. I strongly recommend to take a kayak because wildlife doesn't like the sound of the engine. I went with kayak tour and we saw sloths, caymans, lots of birds, monkeys and an ocelot!! Even our guide was super excited. He said because we were quiet and the ocelot didn't run until we were very close.
Absolutely incredible Costa Rica National Park in the northeast corner of the country. The only way to get there is by water taxi the ride is 15 kilometers through a winding Watercourse that leads into a lagoon just outside of the Caribbean. There are paths through the jungle, three-toed sloths parrots lizards and snakes and all matter of beautiful beautiful plants. Wonderful places to stay right at the edge of the park. Cannot recommend this enough as a vacation!
Magical. We saw so much wild life, including the nocturnal turtles. A good balance of providing humans with magical experiences whilst protecting the environment. It will be totally spoilt if they ever build a road in as a major part of the magic is having to go everywhere by boat.
The animals are so croos inside the national park and in the canals the best time to learn about wild live. In Roots tours office in Tortuguero Town the bes tours guides explain anythink about turtles and wild live..
It's a neat place to visit, but honestly it was so packed full of motor boats and others trying to do exactly what I was doing... trying to see wildlife. With all the noise it's near impossible to see anything besides a sloth. I've seen much more wildlife in Cahuita National Park. That being said the cool factor is there for this place. It's not often you get to speed up a river in the jungle to the mouth were it meets up with the Caribbean. All in all was worth the visit, was pretty, but don't expect to see to much with all the people and boats everywhere.
