Tortuguero Boat Tour

Taking a boat tour in Tortuguero National Park is the best way to experience this nature lover's paradise. It offers an extraordinary rainforest immersion in winding canals of Tortuguero, where you can observe an abundance of wildlife with monkeys, sloths, caimans, iguanas, and many species of birds.

We recommend going in the morning hours as it is a period of intense activity for animals as they forage for the first meal of the day.

The tours are usually organized by your accommodation, but you can also go for our vetted recommendations in the links section.

The boat tours are amazing year-round, but if you want a chance to see sea turtles nesting on the beaches, you need to be there during the nesting season from July to October.
