Tortuguero National Park Tour – 5-Day Independent Adventure
This trip has alternate itineraries available.
Please select your preferred option to see itinerary and pricing.
Until Dec 17 From Jan 18

Spend four days at a lodge in and around Tortuguero National Park. The park is a land of canals and waterways lined by steamy jungle and mangroves teeming with wildlife, and is the Caribbean's most important breeding ground for endangered green sea turtles from June to August. A sleepy Caribbean town, Tortuguero has no roads—access is only by boat or small plane. If you're looking for unspoiled rainforest and more animals than you can shake a camera at, this is the place.
