Tortuguero Sightseeing
There’s nothing like the wake-up call of a troop of howler monkeys to start your day. Set off on a cruise through the park’s canals with your captain and guide to explore the lush waterways of Tortuguero National Park. You may want to start a tally of all the types of wildlife you’ll see. Look out for sloths, green iguanas, caiman, crocodiles and colourful toucans. Of course, you’ll spot tons of monkeys-agile howler and spider monkeys and white-faced capuchins swinging through the dense rainforest canopy. This afternoon, venture back out on the canals to add to your wildlife tally or relax back at the lodge, the choice is yours. If you’re visiting during nesting season (Jul-Sep), choose to join an optional experience night walk with a naturalist guide to witness some of the world’s largest turtles laying their eggs. A buffet dinner is served at your hotel this evening.
