Tortuguero is an impressive national park that mainly exists of swamps, lagoons, many rivers, affluents and canals. The beach of Tortuguero is the most important nesting place of the green sea turtle. But therefore we were not in the right season. The best way of exploring this park is by boat, you have a great view at all animal life in the trees and along the riverbanks. We came here mainly to see the pumilio, the basiliscus plumifrons and the basiliscus vittatus.
