Tortuguero National Park, Cahuita Reviews

  • A quaint village on a small island. Do the cruise and/or the night walk to see the turtles with the guide who will point out the loveliest animals for you. We were lucky enough to see everything from unique colorful birds to the rare spider monkeys playing right above us. This place embodies the pura vida lifestyle.

  • I visited a couple years ago on a Spanish class field trip from America. Tortuguero was probably one of my favorite places we visited. I loved the quaintness of the town and the art work all around coupled with the beauty of Costa Rica. Their ice cream was fabulous and the locals were very friendly.

  • This place is very annoying to get to if you are going alone but it is worth every moment of traveling. I did a canoe.tour through the national park for $20 it was pouring rain most of our trip but it was absolutely fantastic. We saw so much wildlife and it really felt removed from everything. Our tour guide was amazing and a lot of fun and I really felt the tour was worth every penny spent.

  • you can undergo the fauna of the forest, if you have a good guide, you see different kind of animals living there.

  • Great park with high biodiversity, accessible by boat. It gets very busy, and a lot of the boat tours are noisy and rush around, scaring everything away. So choose your type of tour, tour guide and timing carefully.
