Tortuguero boat tour
Boat tours on the creeks of Tortuguero National Park are the primary way to see wildlife and learn about the lowland tropical rainforest. Originally intended to protect a major nesting beach of the Atlantic Green Sea Turtle, the Park now protects 51,870 acres, one of the last large areas of tropical rainforest in Central America.
