Description
We hope you will enjoy it with us. We start our adventure from San Jose at the National Theater, built in 1897 and considered to be one of the most beautiful theaters in Latin America. On our way out from the ...More Central Valley, we pass through the Braulio Carrillo National Park. Its landscape is entirely made of high mountains covered by thick forest and deep, fast flowing rivers forming deep canyons.After a technical stop at the cafeteria and a visit to the banana plantation, we'll start the best part of the trip: we will depart to TORTUGUERO aboard small tourist boats specifically designed to travel through the canals. During 70 km of rivers, canals rivers and and lagoons traveling by boat you will enjoy the diversity in flora & fauna in its natural environment. Tortuguero National Park is located on the Northern Caribbean slope of the country. A navigable network of lakes and canals running parallel to the coast crosses Tortuguero from southeast to northwest. This allows the great variety of flora & fauna of the region to be close at hand. Tortuguero is the most important nesting area for the green turtles Chelonia mydas which come every year to lay their eggs along this coast.Tortuguero has one of the heaviest rainfalls in the country (between 5000 to 6000 mm a year) and it is one of the wilderness areas with the greatest biological diversity. Today, 11 habitats have been identified in the Park, alone. The fauna is also rich and abundant, and easy to find: monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, iguanas, turtles (rivers and sea turtlessss), parrots, toucans,Blue-jeans Frog or Strawberry Poison-dart Frog (Dendrobates pumilio) Spanish name: Ranita roja, Gaspar Fish a living fosil, manaties and much more.
