Turtle nesting night tour ($25 + $10 if you stay at La Baula Lodge for transportation)

Tortuguero National Park is the best

place in Costa Rica to encounter wildlife. It consists of a large system
of waterways irrigating the majority of the Northern Caribbean area of
the country. Because of its remote location and difficult access this
pristine rainforest remains virtually untouched and it is home to many
animals like sloths, monkeys, crocodiles, toucans, trogons, water birds,
colorful frogs and butterflies. This National Park is also the prime
nesting site for the green and leatherback sea turtles from July to
October, during which months an optional turtle nesting night tour will
be available.

On the first day we will drive to the

Caño Blanco embarking area where we will access the main canal to go
north into the National Park. We will check in and at 2:00 pm.
Then we will visit Tortuguero Village.

On the second day we will embark on a

canoe trip into the jungle where you will explore the lagoons and hidden
canals, as we go deeper into the forest the canals become smaller and
the surrounding wildlife gets closer. You can expect to receive plenty
of good information from your naturalist guide. We work hard on making
this tour a learning experience.

After the canoe tour we will go back to

our hotel for breakfast and check out. At 12 noon we start our boat ride
back to Caño Blanco with the option to be dropped off
in San José, Puerto Viejo or the Arenal Volcano.
