Tortuguero Canals


Tortuguero is the most important nesting site in the entire western half of the Caribbean for the green Turtle. The leatherback and hawksbill also nest along these beaches. Seven species of land turtles, the manatee or the sea cow and the crocodile are also found in this region.

IMPORTANT: Participants must pack a couple nights overnight bag for the tour to Tortuguero, as they will be unable to take the bulk of luggage due to a 25lb baggage restriction on the boat. Please leave the extra luggage at the hotel, on their storage room for the return
