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.

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.

The tour itself was fantastic. We had a wonderful guide, Mario, and a wonderful driver, Binnie, and they made sure that we saw all the animals, scenery and shared information that was of interest. The park was lovely, the boat ride relaxing and we say sloths, crocodiles, a cayman, monkeys and lots of beautiful birds. Great day!
Booking the tour through Viator was frustrating. We booked online and the confirmation told us to call the local carrier, Grayline, to find out what time they would pick us up. We called, gave the confirmation number, and they immediately told us that there was no availability for the day we booked. The tour had to be rearranged to three days later and there was a risk that we wouldn't be able to go since we had planned our schedule based on the Viator availability. Please make sure your website is up to date so people don't end up disappointed.
