Tortuguero is a vast area of untouched rainforest on a remote stretch of Caribbean coast, where beaches, canals, lagoons and wetlands create an extraordinary biodiversity.

Activities centre on boat trips through the network of freshwater creeks and lagoons. The park is home to seven species of river turtle, spectacled caiman, southern river otter, spider, howler and capuchin monkey, threetoed sloth and over 300 species of birds. Green and hawksbill turtles come ashore each night between July and September (peaking in August) to lay their eggs, and leatherback turtles between February and April.
