Set between sea and forest, Tortuguero National Park is one of Costa Rica’s must-sees. Through its canals you can observe a diversity of animals. One of these animals is the marine turtle, which during the wet season settles on the park’s beaches to lay its eggs – an extraordinary sight not to be missed.
National Park of Cahuita
Discovering the tranquillity of the Caribbean coast, Cahuita National Park is flat out discovery, with white sandy beaches and peaceful waters. Don’t forget your mask and snorkel, as the park also boasts a wide variety of marine life.
If you’re in the mood for a thrill, we recommend a diversion to Sarapiqui, perfect for rafting enthusiasts. With its many plantations, the valley is sure to surprise you, with its many birds, reptiles and mammals. Keep your eyes peeled!
The Arenal volcano, with its conical shape, offers breathtaking scenery. The volcano heats up the water around it, allowing you to relax in the natural hot springs. The setting is also home to many species of animal that thrive in the heights.
