Tortuguero lays on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. Its geography is very unique because on one side it is touched by the Atlantic Ocean and on the other side you’ll find Sweetwater canals. These Canals are what makes this area famous and a wonderful spot for nature lovers. In these calm waters you’ll find all sorts of marine life as well as thousands of bird species and quite a few mammals as well.
Lucky tourists have spotted manatees, crocodiles, boars and Congo monkeys. The ride through the Tortuguero Canals can be serene, a truly natural experience. We should mention that Tortuguero is one of the best places in the world to see turtles lay their eggs. The best season to experience this natural phenomenon is the summer season, July and August. Tortuguero, you’ll never see anything else like it!
