We went to the Tortuguero National Park by boat from Pachira Lodge and saw the turtle research institute, some leaf-cutter ants walking close by and a little white bat hiding inside a plant leaf - all withing 10 minutes of disembarking the boat.
Carlos took us to see the natural wonders in many Parques Nacionales: Cahuita, Tortuguero, Caño Negro, Rincón de la Vieja, Los Quetzales, Corcovado and Manuel Antonio. Along the way he spotted many flora and fauna, and made sure everybody had the chance to see them...More
Visiting the national park is a wonderful experience starting from when you board the boat at La Pavona. These boats take you down the river for approx. an hour to get you to Tortuguero.
The jungle is fantastic. We saw monkeys, sloths, green turtles and...More

Hi! We went to Costa Rica this summer and visited Tortuguero starting from San Jose. Because of the very high package deals, we decided to go by our own (with 2 kids, age 8 and 9). No problem at all and very easy! First you take the bus from terminal Gran Caribe bus station in San Jose at 9 AM. This bus takes you to Cariari in about 2 hours. From there, you take the bu for La Pavona at 11.30 AM. This ride will take you about 1 hour. In La Pavona you'll be dropped off at the harbour. The boat will take you to TOrtuguero in about 1 1/2 hours. They'll wait for the bus. Total costs (boat and bus) for the 4 of us was approx. 35 dollars. All the people are very helpful.
We booked the trips at Tortguero at Tortugours (Jessica Puchmuller). Also very helpful and best trips for a good price! Enjoy your stay at Costa Rica. Should you have any questions, I'd like to help.

Both great places, you can see Manuel Antonio in half a day but they haven't both sloth and all 3 monkey species but is very busy and touristy, you don't need a guide as there are so many with other groups you can just listen in... That said I would definitely opt for Tortuguero, it is a very unique place with a wider diversity of wildlife, you will need to pay for a boat trip complete with guide though. Hope you enjoy wherever you choose

Malaria Threat--Tortuguero National Park? (5 Replies)
In Nov. we plan to be on a tour which includes Tortuguero National Park. Do non-air conditioned hotels/lodges use mosquito netting? Are mosquitoes a problem day and night? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi , I will be in San Jose from 21st March . My intentions are to visit visit Manuel Antonio , Poas Volcano, Tortuguero National Park and considering Tortuga Island. I will be using San Jose as my base and wondering if Tortuga island is worth the visit? Would anyone recommend staying at Tortuguero NP overnight and 1 night at Manuel Antonio ? I was planning day trips from San Jose for all trips leaving San Jose on 21st of 22nd Mar..any recommendations? Thank you . Lisa

unless you're flying into tortuguero in turtle nesting or hatching season then imo one night isn't worth it. even two nights in season is kinda short too, i recommend at least three nights and be sure to take the jungle tour from casa marbella! again, one night in ma isn't worth it. san jose isn't a good base for doing things on the coast simply because it's at least 1.5 hours to the closest ocean WITHOUT traffic delays and delays are normal in that area.
