The Tortuguero National Park is one of the most varied parks-- boasting lush rainforests to marshy lands, long stretches of beach, wide open canals perfect for crocodile spotting. This region is also one of the most important breeding grounds for the Green Sea Turtle. The wildlife here is very rich and diverse-- with unusually large populations of monkeys, birds and fish.
Rent a canoe or kayak and go exploring on the canal where you’ll be able to spot creatures such as caimans, birds, and crocodiles. This park offers various hiking trails, great for wildlife viewing. Also popular in this region is world class sport fishing for the giant Tarpon.
There are no roads leading to the town of Tortuguero, it's most
commonly accessed by boat from the town of Moin-- found near the port town
