"Four-year olds can be challenging to travel with, but the staff were very welcoming and entertaining and they had a lot of fun with Caroline. One of our activities in Tortuguero was a kayak trip on a portion of the river dedicated to non-motorized travel. When I started to waiver on taking Caroline on this trip, our guide assured me that we would have an amazing experience. I trusted our guide 100%, and I am so glad I didn't back out of the trip. We saw monkeys close up, turtles, and even saw macaws."

Day 4: Tortuguero to Drop Off (B)


Pick Up and Drop Off Points

We pick up and drop off at specific hotels in any of the following areas, so you can work Tortuguero into the flow of your Costa Rica itinerary.

  • Metropolitan area San Jose. Your choice 25-minute flight or 4-hour van, 1-hour boat.
  • Arenal Volcano Region. 5-hour van, 1-hour boat.
  • Sarapiqui. 2-hour van, 1-hour boat.
  • Puerto Viejo or Cahuita. 4-hour van, 1-hour boat.

From San Jose we offer transportation via either a small charter plane (25-minute flight), or a combination of van and boat. You choose. There is no cost difference between the two.

Van transfers from San Jose are with Costa Rica Expeditions. Transfers from Arenal, Sarapiqui and Puerto Viejo/Cahuita are with shuttle transportation companies that normally pick-up and drop off at several hotels before embarking on the journey. They use a hub system, so you may change to a vehicle specific to your destination halfway through the trip. The driver will be Spanish speaking, and it’s important to keep in mind that this transfer will not be accompanied by sightseeing or wildlife stops. We offer private transfers with our vans and drivers at considerable additional cost. Let us know if you want a quote.

IMPORTANT: If you’re not sure about your itinerary yet, please don’t hesitate to bring questions to our reservations staff. They’ll be happy to let you know logistics, and tell you which hotels are visited by shuttles.
