National Park Wildlife Area
Visit the vast reserve of Tortuguero National Park, an area of diverse natural beauty encompassing 11 different habitats in one place. Famed for its returning sea turtle population, who nest on the beaches to spawn their young, you’ll have the opportunity to take a guided night visit in the hopes of seeing the turtles laying their eggs, or even seeing the hatchlings make a break for the ocean. Take a boat through the rich mangrove forests, spotting primates, caiman, and plenty of birds. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Tortuguero National Park and many more Tortuguero attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Tortuguero trip builder.
