The name Tortuguero means region of turtles and today the park attracts many friends of the large sea creatures. This has been a center for conserving several turtle species, especially the once nearly-extinct green sea turtles. Two biological research stations have been set up in the area to monitor the turtles and other species. You’ll see many more turtles on the beaches, including leatherbacks and hawksbills, and some river turtles if you take a boat tour of Tortuguero’s many freshwater creeks and lagoons. Watch these amazing animals lay their eggs during the day or swim up on shore at night. Besides turtles, you’ll also have a chance to see spider monkeys, caimans, crocodiles, sloths, ocelots, and maybe even some endangered manatees. The turtle nesting period is between March and October, when you can watch the turtles on a beach with official guides on nesting tours after 6:00pm. Birdwatchers that have purchased flight tickets cheap will also love Tortuguero as it is home to more than 300 avian species, including toucans, green macaws, egrets and herons. Tortuguero will seem like a far-off paradise as you can only access the park by boat or small aircraft. However, it is very accessible as most of the park can be seen from tour boats. There are also several hiking trails. You can buy flight tickets for cheap daily from San José, Costa Rica’s capital, to Tortuguero.
