Luxury travel to Tortuguero
Abundant Nature in this Coastal Jungle
Translated as ‘Land of the Turtles’, this is quite simply unmissable to many visiting the country’s Caribbean coast. 19,000 acres of extraordinary biological diversity take up a large portion of the north-eastern shoreline and can only be accessed by boat or small aircraft.
Not only an important nesting site for green sea turtles, leatherbacks, hawkbills and loggerheads, Tortuguero is also a vital wetland for spoonbills, herons, parrots, toucans and cormorants to name but a few. Spider monkeys, poison dart frogs, crocodiles, sloths, butterflies, and if you’re lucky a jaguar or tapir, are just some of the jungle’s resplendent wildlife to look out for.
We can provide private transfers to Tortuguero Village, from which most trails and expeditions begin, as well as excellent naturalist guides and exclusive guided tours of the parkland and waterways.
