Learn all about Costa Rica’s efforts to protects its most vulnerable inhabitants!
Your next destination will be Tortuguero! Get ready for your day’s travels and one of the most secluded places in Costa Rica. When you arrive in Tortuguero, you will stay at Mawamba Lodge.

So, get ready to get back to nature and don’t take a walk on the wild side, but a boat ride!
You will now take a tour through the Tortuguero Canals – a river network that works its way through the park and is the essence of all life in Tortuguero. This tour is full of adventure and wildlife and the skilled guide will point out all the interesting plants, animals and tell you all there is to know about the national park itself. They will give you a first-hand experience of Tortuguero and you are bound to see many species of birds, crocodiles, caimans and sea turtles. Don’t be surprised if you see a little Jesus Crist Lizard running across the water!

Today is a very exciting day! We will take a Sky Trek and Sky Tram tour. Each tour will give you a great view of the rainforest below. Check out the Ziplines as you fly through the forest and experience a great thrill.
