What You Can Expect
After pickup from your San Jose hotel, you'll travel through the Braulio Carrillo National Park on your drive. You'll pass mountains covered in dense forests, and numerous rivers and waterfalls. Once you reach the banana plantation, you'll board a boat and set sail to Tortuguero National Park.
As you sail throughout the network of lagoons, your knowledgeable guide will be there to teach you about the history and wildlife of Tortuguero National Park. The park's secluded, black-sand beaches are some of the most important breeding grounds for the green sea turtle. The park is not only home to green sea turtles - you'll also get the chance to see sloths, howler monkeys, tiny frogs and green iguanas. You'll get an up close look at the park's great variety of flora and fauna, as well as many secluded beaches where the green sea turtles nest. You'll have time for a lunch break as you continue to cruise through the channels.
On this day was my birthday. Was the best birthday of my live, cause good english speaking guide, making many jokes, but also immense knowledge of the local animals, he stopped everywhere, to show us, many interessting animals. Was a perfect birthday. Five stars are not enough!
A MUST-DO if you want to see beautiful scenery, watch animals in their natural habitat, travel up a river to a small village with a beautiful beach and learn a lot about plants, history, animals, the ecosystem and much more. Frequent stops en route, good food and lots of photo ops. Tomas, operator and owner of Jungle Tom Safaris, who is passionate about his work, is probably the best guide anyone can hope for. I highly recommend this tour.
