  • We had high expectations to see animals in the area but we saw little. Monkeys, iguanas, lizards, butterflies,... took the opportunity to go for a swim on the beach.

  • I was visiting for two days with my spouse in the area of Tortuguero, Costa Rica. There were several tour the canals and the forest; and it truly is a place of great natural beauty, ideal to leave the hectic day to day and a suitable place to rest.

  • What I recommend is seeking canoes or kayak to where boats cannot go with engine, that will serve to see animals fleeing noise, in addition to motor boats do not have access to areas of caños. It is seeking a guide because they have very good eyes! perception!, and this is something cheap with the Association of guides, there is impressed with the big boats or appearance of the guides. They know very well the area (premises). It is ideal to make the night tour, sometimes there are more active at night than during the day.
