Tortuguero Holidays

Accessed by light aircraft or boat, Tortuguero is one of Costa Rica’s largest and most popular national parks. It’s around one hundred and twenty square miles in total. This humid tropical forest is located in the northeast of the country on the Caribbean coast. There can be showers at any time of the year in this region so bring a light rain jacket.
 
The dense rainforest is criss-crossed by a network of waterways, rivers and lagoons and the park has approximately 22 miles of unspoilt coastline. The coastal zone is protected and is an important breeding ground for marine turtles. Turtles always lay their eggs at the place of their birth, so it is vital that these beaches are kept pristine and undeveloped. Tortuguero beach is one of the most important nesting sites in the world for the endangered Green turtle. Hawksbill, giant leatherbacks and loggerheads also nest on this coast.  Turtle watching is carefully monitored to ensure that the turtles are not disturbed as they dig holes in the sand into which they lay their eggs.
 
A wide canal runs parallel to the coast northwards from the port of Limon and this provides a conduit for much of the river traffic.  Many of the lodges are situated close to the canal in the forest itself, with raised walkways, or are set in lush gardens. The village of Tortuguero is also on the main canal and a visit here is fun. There are rustic bars, craft stalls and people selling fresh coconut milk.

ALL OUR HOLIDAYS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live.
 
Besides the turtles and the noisy monkeys (Howler, Spider and the White-headed capuchin) it’s the smaller creatures that can capture the imagination here. The brightly coloured frogs such as the Blue jeans dart frog and the iconic 'red-gloved' tree frog are favourites, as is the Jesus Christ lizard that can walk on water and the tiny green kingfishers.
 
The rainforest is alive with birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals and it’s fun exploring by boat and on foot. Binoculars are a must as the canopy is high and with the help of your guide you’ll be able to spot so much more. Birdlife includes the Great green macaw, toucans, heron, egret, woodpecker, tanager and stick owl. In the quieter backwaters you can see caiman and if you are lucky you’ll spot a sleeping sloth.
 
Many of the lodges provide wellington boots and a guided walk from your lodge can be richly rewarding. Kayaking is another exciting way to spot wildlife and a sunrise option is often well worth the effort as the wildlife is most active early in the morning. Relaxing by the lodge pool or enjoying a restorative massage is the perfect ways to recharge your batteries between activities.
