Natural History Boat Tours
Your Morning in Tortuguero National Park: After breakfast, leave the lodge by boat with your Tortuguero Naturalist Guide to explore the creeks of Tortuguero National Park. The morning hours are especially active in the rain forest, when wildlife is hungry and in search of their energy source for the day. It's not uncommon to find troops of Howler monkeys in search of tender young figs or the leaves of the Monkey Plum tree. You might even encounter River Otter hunting. The Northern Jacana is often perched on an island of Water Hyacinth looking for insects and miniature shrimp and the caiman is quietly waiting for its next meal to swim by.Learn more
