Tortuguero – Costa Rica
Costa Rica is well known for its popular National Park “Tortuguero”. Tortuguero is located along the Caribbean Coast between a canal and a beach. The climate is warm and humid similar to Florida with temperatures mid to upper 80's and cool nights upper 60's. Precipitation is the heaviest in July with an average of 17 inches of rain and the least amount, 6 inches in Sept.
Are you looking for a quiet, remote, tropical location where you can meditate and relax in this isolated destination? Tortuguero is off the beaten path as there are no roads for vehicles to drop you off, it's a bit of an excursion, but once there the memories will stay with you. The best way to arrive is via boat across the oceans by Moin near Puerto Limon or a small plane from the major airports in Costa Rica. You can save money by booking a tour as they limit the number of nights to stay and set up guided excursions to learn about the history of this beautiful location.
Tortuguero offers tours to watch three different species of turtles lay their eggs on the beach under the stars. The canals are peaceful as you quietly paddle your way you may see many species of birds, 50 species of fish, 3 species of monkeys swinging from the trees, and catch a view of an endangered manatee swimming the canals. Also there are two species of fish that catch the attention of anglers and describe it as their best fishing excursion. If spending quality time alone is more your cup of tea, the hiking trails to explore by foot are a perfect opportunity to catch the spectacular views on top of the world by climbing the only hill as you sit 390 feet above everything else. A jungle canopy tour allows you to view the jungle 100 feet in the air through a series of zip-lines and bridges to cross.
Tortuguero is an adventurous location where you can explore on your own or take a tour with a guide. The most important gear to bring is your rain gear for the rainy days, sun tan lotion to protect you on those warm days, insect repellent as the humidity draws out the bugs, warm clothing for those cool nights, and film to snapshot the endangered turtles or gorgeous landscapes.
