Itinerary

Day 1: San Jose - Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica

Depart San Jose at around 6:00am accompanied by your naturalist guide to drive past coffee plantations and the stunning landscapes of Braulio Carrillo National Park.

Keep an eye out for misty cloud forest and distant waterfalls before stopping for an authentic Costa Rican breakfast of fruit juice, coffee, eggs and the popular “Gallo Pinto”.

After breakfast, we’ll continue to a banana plantation, where your guide will explain the process of growing and exporting that fruit.

We will continue driving on the shuttle and then transfer to a boat for the final leg of the journey into Tortuguero National Park, a pristine nature reserve and an important nesting site for green sea turtles. There, we will learn about how nature works, and we will get a real feel of our tropical humid rainforest.

Covering 29000 hectares, Tortuguero is home to endangered mammals such as sloths, monkeys, agoutis, coatimundis and manatees. There are also abundant birds, such as toucans, trogons, egrets, herons and aninghas, as well as crocodiles, turtles and countless colourful butterflies, including blue morpho.

After lunch, you may go on an optional walking tour of the Museum and the town to learn about the local culture (not included).

Depending on the season, tonight you can also participate in an optional night tour (not included), which consists of a boat trip to Tortuguero National Park followed by walking on the beach to observe the nesting of the Giant Green Sea Turtle (available only from July to October).
