Tortuguero National Park

Tortuguero National Park Highlights

Tortuguero National Park is a tropical paradise located on Costa Rica’s northeastern Caribbean coast. It is renowned for its abundant wildlife and unique ecosystems. One of the park’s most captivating sights is the sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs on the beaches. Visitors can witness this incredible natural event, especially during nesting season. Exploring Tortuguero by boat is a must, as it allows you to navigate the winding waterways and experience the rich biodiversity up close. Staying at Mawamba Lodge, nestled within the rainforest, offers a perfect immersion into nature. Here, you can observe more than 350 bird species, along with sloths, monkeys, and other wildlife, all visible from the lodge’s vicinity.
