Tortuguero & The Caribbean Coast

Nesting green turtles, golden beaches and rich wildlife.

The northern lowlands of Tortuguero national park on the northern Caribbean coast are a nature-lovers paradise, cut off from the rest of the country and only accessible by plane or boat.

It’s one of the best places to see green turtles as they come ashore at night to lay their eggs, or later as their young hatch on the sandy beaches and make their way to back to the sea. Our local guides can show you this protected habitat with nightly observation tours that minimise disturbance to the turtles

During the day there’s much to do exploring tropical rainforest which surrounds the inland waterways. During the hiking and boat trips our guides will point out wildlife from alligators and monkeys to the myriad of bird life.

South is Puerto Limón with great beaches for surfing, kayaking, riding or diving. Alternatively just relax in the Caribbean laid-back ambience near Puerto Viejo.

Lodges may have rustic charm but are set in wonderful surroundings
