Aninhado dentro de um arquipélago de ilhas vulcânicas, o Parque Nacional Tortuguero na Costa Rica é conhecido por sua rica biodiversidade e é o lar de 11 habitats distintos, incluindo manguezais, florestas tropicais, lagoas e praias. Esta reserva tropical protegida oferece aos visitantes a chance de ver uma incrível variedade de plantas e animais selvagens nativos da Costa Rica. Sua excursão de dia inteiro começa com a coleta em seu hotel em San Jose, seguida por uma saborosa parada de café da manhã no restaurante do Rancho Roberto em Guapiles.
Continuando, você passará pelo belo Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo, uma reserva montanhosa repleta de cachoeiras e rios. Em uma plantação de banana perto de Tortuguero Village, troque sua minivan por um barco, já que o Parque Nacional Tortuguero só é acessível por água. Você pode desfrutar de um cruzeiro ao longo dos belos riachos e lagoas de água doce do parque, onde você pode ver muitas aves tropicais na flora circundante.
Após cerca de uma hora, os riachos se abrirão em uma rede de canais mais amplos que atravessam os manguezais e as ilhas pantanosas. Explore esses canais exuberantes enquanto aprende sobre a história do parque e diversos ecossistemas. Fique de olho na vida aquática, como lontras, jacarés-de-óculos e o ocasional peixe-boi das Índias Ocidentais ameaçados, além de criaturas da selva como preguiças, macacos-prego e bugios e uma variedade de répteis.
Desembarque para um almoço de meio dia no Evergreen Lodge. Saboreie a deliciosa culinária costarriquenha em uma sala de jantar ao ar livre, cercada por uma linda e exuberante paisagem de selva. Após o almoço, volte para a água para continuar explorando os diversos habitats do parque. Visite as praias de areia preta que fornecem um importante local de reprodução e nidificação para tartarugas marinhas verdes ameaçadas da Costa Rica e saiba como os esforços de conservação do parque ajudaram a trazer a espécie de volta à beira da extinção.
Depois de várias horas explorando as praias e canais do parque, comece o passeio de barco de volta para a entrada do parque e seu veículo em espera. Relaxe e aproveite a paisagem que passa no caminho de volta para o seu hotel em San Jose.
This tour should not be offered as a one day tour. You spend around 7 hours travelling, and only 4 hours in Tortuguero actually seeing things. The tour departed around 45 minutes late, and there was a lot of traffic. Arrived back to San Jose just after 7pm.
You do not see any turtles in February, which was the main selling point for me. It does not state on the itinerary that Feb is the off season.
The banana plantation was simply looking at some bananas growing while we drove passed in the bus.
When we arrived, we took a boat to the main village, which was nice for around 30 mins weaving through the lush greenery, but then got a bit boring. On the return boat the sailer really struggled to get us back in low tides, in very hot weather. You spend nearly 3 hours in the boat in total, which is far too long! After lunch you are told to just walk around the hotel for 45 mins (this is away from the nice village part) which is a massive waste of time!
On the way there, we stopped for 30 mins for breakfast, losing more time, this seems unnecessary and took up time which could have been spent in Tortuguero. Lunch was very nice food. Saw one sloth (at the side of the road), some birds, couple of lizards and iguanas, and a baby crocodile - very limited wildlife. NO TURTLES.
We spent 30 mins on the beach, and around 15 mins walking through Tortuguero Village. This was the highlight, and Tortuguero itself seems very nice, relaxed and chilled, a little bit touristy, but less so compared to places like Manuel Antonio, Monteverde and La Fortuna. I wish I would have booked an overnight stay, as I feel it was needed to appreciate the place. The tour guide also speaks multiple languages, which is fine, but means everything is told in Spanish and English, so you miss out on hearing more.
I would not recommend booking this trip as the one day offering from San Jose (certainly not in February). Book it yourself and spend at least one night there.
This is a great place to spend the day and we had the most awesome guide - German sounds like Herman. He showed us so many things, was extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rica and just seemed to enjoy spending the day with the group.
This tour shows the beauty and richness of Costa Rica's nature. A trip on a minivan, then on a motor boat, a walk in the park make this long trip not very tedious. The childhood memories from Jules Verne's books came to mind when they sailed along a narrow, winding river through a magnificent jungle. It should be borne in mind that turtles can be seen only at certain times of the year, we did not see them, but without them there were many interesting things.
This trip was somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. Not bad, not great, but had potential. The bus transportation to Torguguero was pretty rough. The mini-bus itself was okay, but the A/C was broken driver wasn't aware until that day, and there were a lot of construction delays, traffic, and rough roads. Exhausting, with a trip that was long anyway. It turned out to be a 15-hour day. The boat ride to the actual park was terrific. We didn't see much wildlife at all, just 1 sloth, 2 caiman, 1 croc, and a bunch of lizards. And some birds, and maybe 2 monkeys. Would love to see the area when it's more active. Our guide was very informative and pointed out things we would have missed. But he did have to say everything twice, because we had a multi-lingual group. Enjoyed the meals included. Can't blame the tour company for a less-than-perfect day, because you can't make up wildlife that's not visible, or control the traffic ...
It was a very disappointing experience.
First of all, this tour was supposed to be in English. Our group included two people who spoke only Spanish and the rest of the group spoke English. The guide, whose native language is Spanish, did approximately 80 of the talking in Spanish. He didn't always wait until the entire group assembled to begin talking, so we missed much of the information.
Secondly, this trip is very long - it lasts 12 hours. We did not want it to be any longer, but this wasn't the case. The guide was in such a hurry to get there, but didn't seem to mind wasting time at other places.
On the way to the river the bus picked up some other people who weren't on the tour. On the way we also stopped at an ATM and wasted at least half an hour just parked there.
But it was just the beginning.
After lunch, we were supposed to have a boat ride on the river: the main attraction of the entire tour. We waited for our boat to arrive for at least an hour in a gazebo with no entertainment other than each other and our devices didn't work with bad WiFi. When the boat finally arrived, there were several people already on it. It appeared that those people should not have been there. Thus, we sat in the boat in the middle of the river for another hour in the blazing hot sun and 95 degree weather while our guide tried calling everybody to figure out what happened and what to do with the extra passengers. We wasted two hours for nothing and come back. The jungle trip was discarded since we had to return to the bus.
At the end we returned two hours late: after 8:00pm rather than 5:30 as promised.
There was a complete lack of cooperation and disrespect towards the group. It is truly unfortunate that we wasted our day and a lot of money on this trip: it was an absolute disaster. We would definitely NOT recommend this to other travelers- find a different tour.
Excellent. Very enjoyable. The bus was comfortable and air-conditioned. This was an early start with breakfast before heading to boats then a long boat ride following by a walk around the village. We then had lunch in a restaurant inside the forest then another boat trip back to the bus.
We loved our trip to Tortuguero National Park. Our guide, Luis, did a great job making every part of the trip informative and entertaining with jokes or facts about the location we were in. We saw some amazing animals on our boat ride too - definitely worth the price and a great experience overall.
