4.0
#2 of 7 in Parks in Puerto Limon
Meander your way through Tortuguero Canal, a labyrinth of waterways that weave around the perimeter of the national park. A primary Atlantic nesting site for the green turtle, the canal provides safety for the turtles with protected beaches on the edges, and night tours allow you to witness this magical nesting event. Take a popular canal tour and let your guide lead the way, helping you catch glimpses of the animal and plant life populating this tropical lowland rainforest. Crocodiles, river turtles, sloths and many species of monkey are just some of the inhabitants you will have the chance to meet. Tours are offered on motor boats or, to get up close, canoes.
