Full description
Take part on an expedition through the dense jungle of one of the most beautiful and scenic regions of Costa Rica, where you can observe the wildlife and unique ecosystem of this fragile environment.

Leaving early in the morning, you will travel through the Braulio Carrillo National Park where we will pass mountains covered by dense forests, as well as numerous rivers and waterfalls, until we arrive at the Caribbean of Costa Rica. Here, you cross the banana plantations to board the boat to sail to Tortuguero National Park.

Sail the exotic channels of Tortuguero National Park, famous for its solitary beaches where the nesting of gigantic green turtles takes place from July through September. Tortuguero is one of the most important nesting sites of the Green Turtle in the Western Hemisphere.

A navigable network of channels and lagoons cross the National Park of Tortuguero, which allows you to view the great variety of flora and fauna and the many species of animals that inhabit this park.
