Tortuguero National Park One-Day Tour
English and Spanish
Depart from San Jose accompanied by a bilingual naturalist guide for a pleasant journey to Tortuguero National Park. After a scenic drive by the Braulio Carrillo National Park, there will be a stop for a typical Costa Rican breakfast (juice, coffee, eggs, and the popular “Gallo Pinto” included), at a restaurant in the area of Guápiles. Following breakfast, we continue to a banana plantation, where your guide will explain the process of growing and exporting that fruit.
Continue later towards the embarkation dock, abandon the bus and embark on the most exciting part of this tour: the boat trip into the jungle of the Tortuguero National Park. Covering 29000 hectares. Tortuguero is one of the most important nesting sites of Chelonia Midas, the green sea turtle, whereas its forests and waterways are home for such endangered mammals such as sloths, monkeys, agoutis, coatimundis and manatees. There are also abundant birds, such as toucans, trogons, egrets, herons and Anhingas, as well as crocodiles, turtles and countless colourful butterflies, including blue morpho.
You will enjoy a hearty typical buffet lunch to please the hungriest of appetites. After lunch, you will take a walk through the Tortuguero Village where you will have the opportunity to learn about the history of the town and its inhabitants. Returning to the bus, we head back to San José, making a rest stop along the way.
