The best place in Costa Rica. Wildlife around every corner. Turtle trip was an incredible experience. Really loved the information board on the border to the national park as this gave lots of information on the area and the surrounding wildlife.
A lovely place for kayaking and hiking. Chill place, special for its place and transportation. Going to Tortuguero is unique. But seeing sea turtle nesting was kind of an odd thing.
A real sense of nature without human contact. The tour takes place in boats between the various lagoons. You can watch crocodiles, monkeys, and if you're lucky, you can see dolphins and tigers. A wonderful view (attached pictures) A place that remains protected from environmental destruction. It is highly recommended to take a cruise to watch the animals and plants. You can expect sea turtles to be tossed, a spectacular sight.
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.
Amazing national park with loads of animals to see and much nicer beaches than nearby so make a day of it
