Overview

Your tour starts with Tortuguero National Park that protect 51,870 acres of one of the last large areas of tropical rainforest and a major Atlantic Green Sea Turtle nesting area. The park inhabits three species of monkeys (Spider, Howler, and White-faced), Three-toed Sloths, River otters, Caimans, Iguanas, River turtles, Basilisk Lizards, and Poison Dart Frogs. More than 320 species of birds are found at this park, including all six species of kingfishers found in the new world, three species of toucans, eight species of parrots, and other neotropical species such as the Slaty-tailed Trogon, White-collared Manakin, Purple-throated Fruitcrow, and White-fronted Nunbird and many more species. You and your family will have the opportunity to observe these species and more as you take a boat ride through the backwater creeks of Tortuguero National Park. At the Tortuga Lodge & Gardens you can join their free 4pm walk in the gardens with one of the hotels naturalist huides, hike the trails behind the lodge on your own or relax in a hammock between the rainforest and the river. To the children occupied, Tortuga Lodge & Gardens has a guided garden walk every afternoon from 2:30pm- 3:30pm, followed by fishing on the dock with live bait caught by the children with the assistance of the Tortuguero naturalist guide.
The hotel also organizes early morning bird and nature walks that start at 6am, to give you a spot of adventure before breakfast. After breakfast, take the hotels tour that explores the creeks of the National Park. This three-hour trip takes you into the backwater lagoons and creeks of Tortuguero National Park. A staggering number of wildlife inhabits Tortuguero, including 57 species of amphibians, 111 species of reptiles, and 60 species of mammals.
You will also have a chance to tour the village of Tortuguero, a small quiet town located on a relatively narrow spit of land between the beach and a canal. Discover the friendly locals and exciting lifestyle as you walk through this colourful Caribbean town.
Your Tortuguero naturalist guide will also give you an opportunity to take your kayaks to the entrance of Caño Chiquero or Caño Mora. Kayaking gives you a new perspective of the rainforest; these creeks are designated for non-motorized boats only.
