More About Tortuguero National Park:

With its incredible biodiversity, Tortuguero National Park (Parque Nacional Tortuguero) is among Costa Rica’s most visited attractions. Home to monkeys and caimans as well, the park is best known for its sea turtles. Clusters of green, hawksbill, leatherback, and loggerhead turtles lay their eggs in the sand of remote Caribbean beaches.

If you’re hoping to see turtles, visit Tortuguero National Park as part of a multi-day tour, and head to the beaches at night, where you’ll scan the sand for turtle tracks using the beam of a flashlight. Another highlight is boating the freshwater lagoons, a pristine habitat for more than 300 bird species. You’ll also find three hiking trails in the park—take the one to Tortuguero Hill for stellar views over the canals and beaches.

Things to Know Before You Go

Night visits to see the turtles must be accompanied by a guide, and cameras are prohibited.

Wear waterproof boots if you’re planning on hiking, as the trails are often muddy.

Take insect repellent and sunscreen, and be prepared for hot, humid conditions year-round.

When to Get There

For turtle spotting, visit during peak nesting season (March through May for leatherback turtles, and July through October for green turtles). Go on a night safari to look for frogs, snakes, insects, and turtles; early morning hours are ideal for viewing birds and other wildlife. September, October, and February tend to be the driest months.
