Tortuguero National Park Trip

  • 41 reviews | 500 travellers
    The activity was unbeatable. We were 6 people in a van and the weather was very good (I suppose the story changes a lot if the weather is bad). Our guide, Alvar, gave it his all! You can tell he likes what he does. The outward journey becomes somewhat intense but he brightens it up a lot, he explains things to you and stops several times (we saw a pineapple plantation, turtles, iguanas...). The boat ride is spectacular, we were lucky and we saw alligators, monkeys, all kinds of birds. Food and breakfast good.

Tortuguero National Park Trip

After picking you up at your hotel, we'll set off with a natural scientist guide to Braulio Carrillo National Park, an extensive area housing a magnificent forest and waterfalls that can be seen from afar.

At over 3,000 metres high, the Barva Volcano will be what takes our breath away. During the tour, we'll also see some of the over 135 animal species that live in the Braulio Carrillo National Park.

We'll stop for a typical Costa Rican breakfast to recharge our batteries. We'll have eggs and the famous gallo pinto, a dish made of beans and rice, along with juice and coffee.

Then we'll continue our tour at the banana plantations, where we'll learn about the growth and exportation process of one of Costa Rica's most important products alongside chocolate and coffee.  

Next, we'll board a boat that will sail us off to the Tortuguero National Park, recognised for its rich biological diversity.

The star of the park is the green turtle, but it coexists with many other fascinating animals such as the manatee, the sea cow and the crocodile. And the park is also home to endangered mammals such as sloths, monkeys and white-nosed coati.

At lunchtime, we'll enjoy a delicious traditional meal to recharge our batteries. There'll be a buffet-style menu with a choice of salads, meat, garnish, dessert, coffee and drinks.  

After lunch, we'll visit the village of Tortuguero, which is actually a street where only cycling and walking are allowed. We'll also see some bars and restaurants that are popular among residents of this charming place. 

At the end of the trip, we'll make our way back to your hotel in San José.
