The most spirited guide for two remarkable tours
Oct 2021 • Couples
Maybe an entire stadium.

That is what you can easily fill if you were to have a tour with Kevin Sambola Estrada. We did a late night turtle tour and a canoe tour. With humour and an enthusiasm that grasps you, he cannot stop talking about the turtles and its species, egg-laying, protection, and all the life within and around Tortuguero National Park. Kevin explains you every single thing you'd like to know - and more.

A guide which you buy a ticket for.

You shouldn't miss Tortuguera, and if you're there, you'll want to visit the park. NOTE: Get passes on line at least one day before you visit.

Wonderful boat ride through the park with Hector. He took us from the Anagalina hotel. Boa constrictors, Catalans, Howler monkeys, herrons,……just a great tour. So beautiful to float through this park. Hot!! Humid and Gorgeous.

Off the beaten path!

Tortuguero National Park was a beautiful place to visit. As I was there during turtle nesting season I was able to see green turtles laying eggs on the beach at night, it was definitely a memorable experience. Erick at Roots was excellent, and I also did a canoe and cultural tour during my time at Tortuguero that were amazing. I would highly recommend Tortuguero to anyone who wants to experience an unchartered type place, only accessible by boat, population of 1600. Everyone was very friendly and the tour was wonderful.

Wonderful park experience
May 2021
Wonderful park! We are really glad we made this part of our Costa Rica trip. We did a guided canoe tour in the morning, where we saw lots of birds, monkeys and iguanas. We later walked the park on our own, where we saw an anteater, a small deer, a baby sloth and lots more birds! It was a really great experience- highly recommend.

Abundant Wildlife

We had an excellent guide from the Mawamba Lodge and our tour was small so we felt like we had a private excursion. We saw caymans, sloths, macaws, and a variety of wading birds. We saw howler monkeys. This is a great trip for beginner explorers and for experts.

a unique place to visit!
Jan 2021
We spent just 1 night in Tortuguero but it was enough time. What we enjoyed the most is the 1h boat ride from Pavona to Tortuguero. We saw caimans, birds and enjoyed the lush environment around us. It was like being in the Amazon, truly....
The little town is very nice, you'll be approached by tour guides as you step out the boat. We did a private boat tour for 2-3 hours early in the morning. We say caimans, many birds but as we were a family with 2 children, it cost us 100 dollars for the tour including the park fees and to be honest, the boat ride to Tortuguero was almost as nice. So if you have at the money, do go in the National Park, if you have already seen the animals and are tight with money, the scenery is not much different in the park than on the way from Pavona to Tortuguero.
