Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica’s “little Amazon”, is located on the Caribbean coast. This remote area is accessible only by plane or by boat; nevertheless your lodging will still be first class. Wildlife-rich Tortuguero will allow you the chance to see a large diversity of bird species, monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, and iguanas as you tour the navigable rainforest canals by boat. The tropical beaches around Tortuguero are key nesting sites for green sea turtles during July to September.
