A drive over the majestic Central Mountain range and through the Braulio Carrillo National Park, a spectacular, dense rainforest that covers the steep mountains, before reaching the warm, Caribbean lowlands. This rich, agricultural farmlands and small towns accompany you before reaching the river canals that will glide you to Tortuguero.

Year-round summer

Did we mention that Costa Rica has really great weather!? These wonderful year-round summer and a number of micro-climates are the result of the impressive forest laden volcanic mountain ranges, the rich coastal lowlands and the oceanic winds from the Pacific and the Atlantic.

Cooler weather happens during the afternoon tropical bursts of rainfall that refresh and revive, making the rainforest greener and the water shimmer.  That afternoon coffee is richer too while contemplating the canal and its beauty.

So while white rules in the north during the winter, in Tortuguero, the greens and the blues are the colors of the season and the only cold is that sipping on that refreshing Costa Rican beer or fresh fruit smoothie. After a day of adventure on the canals checking out the animals of the rainforest and their tropical vibe, this type of cold is welcomed!

Learn the tricks of tropical life from the experts!

The Tortuguero wildlife residents will certainly show you the tricks when it comes to a laid back summer lifestyle!  Those sloths that just hang off the tree branches and sleep or munch on leaves know how to live a stress-free, tropical life.  Even the sly, caimans that glide effortlessly through the water or bask in the sun are good at enjoying the warmth of the day.

And the great thing about Tortuguero and its relative seclusion from the holiday season rush, this is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all and embrace nature and its serenity.  It is the perfect place to detox and defrost too!
