Spot Prolific Wildlife While Exploring the Jungle-Fringed Canals & Trails of Tortuguero
Accessible 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 contained within 11 different habitats including rain forest, swamp, mangroves, lagoons and ocean beaches. Tortuguero teems with wildlife, both aquatic and land-based. A boat trip through its maze of canals reveals a multitude of wildlife—look for waterfowl, tropical birds, caiman, sloths and three species of monkey. Tortuguero is a key nesting location for endangered green sea turtles. We also find leatherback, loggerhead and hawksbill turtles within the reserve's protected bounds.
