our journey by boat to Tortuguero National Park by a river that
takes us through the jungle up to the canals. Tortuguero
National Park is located in the north-eastern of Costa Rica and
is one of the most famous parks at the international level as
one of the most important locations for the nesting of olive
ridley turtle, leatherback and others. The wildlife in this area

amphibians, birds and fish. Resident wildlife includes tapirs,
jaguars, grisons, sloths, frogs, macaws, toucans and bats. The

some species are only found in these regions, including some
palm trees, orchids and heliconias.

where our guide will give a short tour starting with the
information center of the National Park to finish with a visit
to the CCC (Caribbean Conservation Corporation). Later we will
visit the famous Bocana, point where the canal joins the sea,
and finally if the weather allows, we will go down at the Cerro
of Tortuguero to see the beautiful view it offers and for those
