Located on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, Tortuguero National Park protects one of the last large areas of tropical rainforest in Central America. The park's beaches are a prime nesting ground for endangered green turtles, which come ashore to lay their eggs between June and October. The slow-moving tropical rivers are home to river otters and crocodiles, while other animals found here include three different species of monkeys, more than 400 types of bird and over 50 species of freshwater fish. Undoubtedly a paradise for wildlife lovers, Tortuguero National Park holidays are well-suited to those with an appreciation for all things eco.
The park is situated on a floodplain in the Caribbean and it’s this fertile environment that has given rise to one of the country’s most biodiverse regions. Tailor-made Tortuguero holidays will likely feature their fair share of wildlife-watching, and you can explore the park’s freshwater creeks by boat or canoe to see caimans slumbering on the mangrove-rich riverbanks. Other active pursuits include hiking through the park’s emerald-hued undergrowth, braving its vertiginous tree-tops during a canopy tour and watching turtles nesting on one of the butter-soft sand beaches.

Costa Rica customer reviews (4 reviews)
Oliver couldn’t have been more helpful - we had a very specific, and not totally simple, brief and timeline. Oliver’s experience in the area was very clear and he created a fantastic itinerary for us. As to the trip itself - it was totally magical. The quality of the concierge and tour guides was top notch - the latter was a big part of the trip (we went on numerous tours) and added hugely to the success of the trip. Activities were spot on for our boys. Best were humpback whale watching for us, zip-lining for the boys! Family rooms and suites were great too, so we could all be together. The modem was a great touch and very useful. The app - and all the information within it - was also great. Victor the Concierge was wonderful - from providing us with local currency so we could use a toll bridge as we left San Jose, to sending us regular route updates and restaurant recommendations. Lounge access is always a fab touch! And the meet and greet takes away all the stress of trying to work out logistics when arriving somewhere new. Both add to the feeling of R&R. All in all, Original Travel were superb!
