Tortuguero Extension

Spot prolific wildlife as we explore the jungle-fringed canals of Tortuguero by boat
Reachable only by airplane or boat, Tortuguero National Park on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast is one of the country's most impressive natural treasures. The park's biological diversity is stunning, nourished by 250 inches of rain a year and harbored within 11 different habitats, including rainforest, mangroves, swamps, lagoons and ocean beaches. Tortuguero teems with wildlife, both aquatic and land-based. A boat trip through its maze of canals may reveal a multitude of waterfowl, tropical birds, caimans, tree sloths and three species of monkeys. Tortuguero is a key nesting site for endangered green sea turtles, and leatherback, loggerhead and hawksbill turtles are also found within the reserve's protected bounds. 

Trip Highlights

  • Explore the lush reaches of Tortuguero on boat cruises through the park's maze of canals and wander rainforest trails, watching for a multitude of wildlife! 
  • Travel with highly knowledgeable local guides to learn about the natural history of 11 different habitats within the park
  • Traverse Braulio Corrillo National Park, encompassing some of Costa Rica's largest and richest tracts of primary cloud and rainforest, en route to Tortuguero
