There are some short walks as well as the option for a 2-mile hike over uneven terrain which may be muddy and slippery. Those who opt to add a Turtle Tour must be prepared to spend up to 3 hours walking on the soft sandy beach after dark. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high. Roads may be bumpy on our way to Tortuguero.
Important Information About This Trip
Late June through mid October is the Green Sea Turtle nesting season in Tortuguero and an excellent time to visit. Guided trips to see the nesting turtles will be available upon arrival at an additional cost, but cannot be booked or guaranteed in advance. Turtle Tours are available in the evenings, with two departures per day, and can be booked at the lodge reception desk for approximately $35 USD per person (prices may change without notice) and can be paid for with US dollars, Costa Rica colones, Visa or MasterCard.
Mandatory Insurance
