Overview

If you’re short on time in Costa Rica but want to see the country’s famous biodiversity beyond the concrete capital, this day trip to the Tortuguero National Park is ideal. Travel through the canals and lagoons on a boat and look out for toucans, crocodiles, sloths, iguanas, and much more. The highlight, though, is seeing the sea turtle nesting sites on the beaches, which give the park its name.
  • An easy way to visit Tortuguero from San Jose
  • Breakfast and lunch will be provided

Motion sickness

We saw 3 wild sloths on our way, Carlos and Giovanni stopped the van on the road for us to take pictures. Bring money for bathroom breaks. Food and drinks were good. Bring motion sickness medicines because the van ride round trip is life threatening, Carlos was passING cars on the shoulder, across double lines, and played with the radio while driving. I will say it was a good time and I'm glad we went, but that bucket list has been checked off.

Most amazing trip!!

This trip was amazing! Our tour guide was so kind, caring, friendly and so knowledgeable so would definitely recommend him - he was called Giovanni. The canal ride through Tortuguero National park was stunning and it felt like we were out of this world! The trek through the National park was also amazing and our guide pointed out animals like the red frog to us and he climbed with us to the viewpoint. Lunch was so delicious! We then walked along the beach and had some time to relax. I would highly recommend this tour! It was my favourite tour in Costa Rica!

Our guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable about the country and it's history. Never rushed anyone, loved answering our questions, and made our trip very enjoyable. We had a wonderful hike, we sow howler monkeys, dart frogs, the ocean and the black volcanic sand, ate a wonderful lunch and had a few minutes in a very small town for shopping. A great day was had by all.
