population and surrounded by mountains. This area boasts fantastic
vistas and a perfect climate.
Tortuguero National Park is located on the Caribbean coast. At Tortuguero you will go on an evening beach walk in the National Park with the hopes of catching a glimpse of a nesting sea turtle. During the day, explore the local canals for wildlife, hike in the surrounding rain forest and visit the Turtle Museum in the town of Tortuguero.
