  • The park itself is fine. Many animals (but 1 spider monkey not seen). Bioluminescence is incredible. But overpriced. We waited quite some time (cause strong storm) by eating fruit supplied by turismo curu. When the rain stopped and nightfall we finally left by boat. Drive d is hard 10' then we dove a water with mask and snorkel for 10-15 minutes before returning. The experience in the water was amazing but having to pay 12 dol the entrance of the Park then 35 a quarter of watermelon and 15' in l water c is really expensive for what it is. Do not pay the entrance of the park for this activity seems the least of things, or so to lower the price. There are also summer shock d hear that one of the people working on the site fed the animals with the remains of meals, and including the spider monkey. Behaviour quite strange when s is written everywhere especially do not feed the animals.

  • Go early or in the evening for the chance to see animals. During our walk, it was very hot (at noon) and we saw a lot of... crabs. The trails are very nice. You will see monkeys, Capuchins, iguanas and raccoons easily at the reception anyway. Starting point to go to Tortugero.
