Guapiles Food was excellent Staff were friendly and smiled. A great litte stop off, with nice butterfly garden and facilities.
La Costa Caribeña es el hogar del hermoso pueblo y el Parque Nacional de Tortuguero. Esta zona cubierta por el sol con poco espacio poblado de aldeas costeras ofrece un completo ambiente de descanso. La cultura de esta costa es muy diferente en comparación con el resto del país por su prominente influencia afro-Caribeña la cual es muy notable, así como la deliciosa cocina encontrada aquí.
No hay carreteras que conduzcan a Tortuguero, la manera más común de visitar esta área es por barco desde el pueblo de Moín encontrado muy cerca de puerto Limón. Desde aquí usted tomará un paseo en barco por el canal de Tortuguero y su Parque Nacional. La otra opción es tomar un corto vuelo desde San José. El pueblo es pequeño con una poca cantidad de casas, varios hoteles, tiendas de regalos y propiedades con interesante vida silvestre.
El Parque Nacional Tortuguero es uno de los parques más dotados, con bosques lluviosos, tierras pantanosas, largos tramos de playa, anchos canales perfectos para encontrar los cocodrilos y es también uno de los sitios más importantes para la reproducción de la Tortuga Verde. La fauna silvestre es muy rica y diversa con grandes poblaciones de monos, aves y peces.
A pesar que Tortuguero es relativamente pequeño ofrece gran variedad de actividades. Una experiencia absolutamente impresionante es visitar las playas de anidación durante la noche con un guía y ver las tortugas desovar. Rente una canoa o kayak para explorar los canales donde usted podrá observar criaturas, como el caimán, aves y cocodrilos. El parque también ofrece varios senderos para la observación de aves y la vida silvestre. Otras actividades populares son la pesca deportiva, así como Canopy tour y puentes colgantes.

This was a very special experience. Something not very many get to be part of. Great service, so remote, lots of animals, and a great nature experience! Loved it!
Wow!!! Amazing! Words cannot express how great my experience in Tortugero was. If you go to Costa Rica you must go there. Stay at Laguna Lodge and have Carlos Arceyut as your tour guide. The views during the boat ride there was breath taking. If you want to relax, enjoy nature, bird watching, and much more you have to go to Tortuguero. Laguna lodge is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The food is amazing and authentic. They have 2 swimming pools and plenty of space to roam around. You'll see all kinds of birds, Iguanas, there's a little frog garden. The beach is literally your backyard while staying there. Enough said! Just go there already. Carlos will make sure you get to see everything you would expect and more.
This place was beautiful. And I was able to see the turtles. Amazing!
Great place to see the turtles. Town is quite basic, but perfectly serviceable.
I loved Tortuguero. It was the least tourist-dense part of our trip and filled with the most wildlife. I would certainly return.
We actually saw a jaguar along the bank of the canal. Got great photos and video.
We loved the wildlife here and the people were very nice as well.
Rugged nature at its best. Remote for sure but amazing experiences. We saw sea turtles coming out of their nests and running to the sea. Awesome. And some new birds too.
Oh, what a beautiful place this is! The boat tours and guides were incredible. We will be coming back to this area as soon as we can, and we will definitely be asking for Mario as our tour guide. What an amazing way to experience nature. We saw toucans, 3 varieties of monkeys, and hatching sea turtles. It was so peaceful and filled with opportunities to experience nature. I wouldn't recommend this to families with young children, but we have definitely been recommending it to everyone else!
Completely amazing! Tortuguero is a must visit.
I think our favorite place to eat was called natural foods. The chaps at the tourist information were very helpful particularly Leonardo and Oscar. We went on a canoe and guided walk with Juan who was also good. Our accommodation at Tortuguero Natural B&B was clean and adequate. Jose our host was very attentive and helpful. Security was also good here.
Loved the natural beauty and the jungle, very unique area, would have loved to be there when the turtles were nesting.
Tortuguero is an all-inclusive resort, so one restaurant/one bar, but it's perfect. Great variety for meals and drinks, lots of hiking trails, a wonderful beach, pools, and a frog garden with iguanas and red-eye tree frogs. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to just relax and enjoy themselves.
Tortuguero es un lugar bastante recomendable para las personas que gustan de la Naturaleza y quieren ver fauna silvestre. Todo es bastante bonito, desde el trayecto y el hecho de que tengas que navegar por entre los canales para poder llegar ahí. Los paquetes que venden son muy buenos ya que tienen todo incluido y el trato del personal es muy muy bueno.
The turtle guides were amazing! Two days is the perfect amount of time to spend here.
Highly recommend the turtle tour
Ricardo was a wonderful tour guide who educated us on the area.
Excellent service at Tortuga Lodge and Gardens. The staff were very kind and helpful. Being able to see the forest from the water was a neat experience. Though it rained during our entire kayak trip it was still a blast!
Wonderful - not very touristy, highly recommmend for nature lovers.
