  • It was an awesome park. Some of the best things to see are at night! We stayed on the ocean within walking distance to the park. I believe we paid a few dollars to get in.. wasn't crazy. The trail out to the point was amazing! Every so often a trail went to the ocean and walk the ocean until the next trail entrance. We saw tons of howler monkies and a few foot prints from a big cat. There are stops along the way to rest if needed. It poured rain on our way back. Definitely wear boots, it is a rain forest so plan on rain. Don't get to lost up in the beauty..big cats roam as well. We found tons of turtle shell holes after they hatched. This was a truly amazing place.
  • We had an amazing time in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and our trip to Tortuguero National park was so special. We have seen so much wildlife. My dream came true at Tortuguero National park where I have finally seen a green Sea Turtle nesting. This is a life changing experience that makes you more humbled towards the nature and all its beauty. It is so important to preserve the nature and to save the planet for many more centuries to come so that our next generation can enjoy the blessing as we have. I’ll never forget this experience and would definitely come back to explore more of Costa Rica
