An early start begins the journey to the jungle as you travel from San Jose to where the road gives way to the Caribbean coastal canal system. Breakfast will be served before boarding your boat as you continue to travel toward Tortuguero. Along the way, keep your eyes open to spot monkeys, iguanas, toucans and many other bird species. Arrive to your jungle accommodation, complete with all the creature comforts of home and the only hotel with air-conditioning in Tortuguero. Be warmly welcomed with a beverage, orientation of the facility and lunch. This afternoon, visit Tortuguero Village and the Caribbean Conservation Company. Learn about the afro-Caribbean culture and the preservation philosophy of Tortuguero. This evening, enjoy dinner in the Ara Macaw Restaurant paying tribute to Caribbean fusion cuisine.
Rise with the Howler monkeys and depart the dock for a special trip into Tortugero National Park by boat. This protected wilderness area is famous for being the nesting grounds for sea turtles and endangered green turtles (seasonal). Brackish and fresh water creeks and lagoons are the perfect places to spot spectacled caimans and river turtles. Return to the hotel and relax or perhaps take part in one of the many options available. Make some time for a spa treatment, read a book by the pool or add to your bird count while roaming the exuberant gardens. Return to the canal in the afternoon to see the difference of wildlife as the day progresses towards sunset. This evening, why not try to spot some nocturnal creatures with an evening walk with your guide?
In the morning, gain an new perspective of the jungle landscape. Depart by small aircraft alongside the beach of Toruguero and head off toward the Barva and Irazu volcanoes on the way to San Jose. Watch below as the canals and jungles give way to mountains and finally the urban city life from where your journey began. Transfer to your hotel, relax and refresh. This evening join your fellow travellers for a Welcome Dinner as your Costa Rica adventure continues.
6 Full Breakfasts (FB), 3 Lunches (L) and 4 Dinners all with wine (DW).
