This tour gives you the opportunity to discover the incredible flora and fauna in a low-cost way.

Tortuguero National Park is the best place in Costa Rica to encounter wildlife; it consists of a large system of waterways irrigating the majority of the Northern Caribbean area of the country. Because of its remote location and difficult access this pristine Rainforest remains virtually untouched and it is home to many animals like sloths, monkeys, crocodiles, toucans, trogons, water birds, colourful frogs and butterflies.This National Park is also the prime nesting site for the green and leatherback sea turtles from June to October, during which months an optional turtle nesting night- tour will be available.

On the first day we will drive to the Caño Blanco embarking area where we will access the main canal to go north into the National Park. Upon arrival at La Baula Lodge you will enjoy a delicious lunch followed by a visit to the unique Tortuguero village.

On the second day we will embark on a boat trip into the jungle where you will explore the lagoons and hidden canals; as we go deeper into the forest the canals become smaller and the surrounding wildlife gets closer. On the way out we will take part of a guided hike in the south side of the park, where away from the water the trees are very tall, covered with bromeliads, vines and orchids for a great complement to the canal experience.

Back at Caño Blanco we will drive to our Exploration Center for lunch & unward transport to San José, Caribe Sur or the Arenal Volcano.
