Tortuguero Tour, Costa Rica - 04 days #CRT
Map of the tour CRT-04 days
Tortuguero itself is worth the trip (to Costa Rica) : the site is enchanting, people are friendly and the exploration cruises on the canals are "out of the ordinary" ...
 Mrs.Chartier, Canada

We spent 4 days / 3 nights at Mawamba Lodge before Christmas and were wholly delighted with out stay. Accommodation and food were very good and the staff were superb. With regard to the wild life viewing, we ound the guides had expert knowledge and the boat drivers very keen eyes. We will recommend Amerika Venture to our friends in the UK. Many thanks for a good trip!
 Lesley & David Whipp, U.K.

Explore Tortuguero, a land of incredible biological diversity where, at night, from July to September, impressive Green Sea Turtles nest on the beach.

A tropical sanctuary for more than 300 different species of birds and a natural habitat for an amazing array of wildlife; such as monkeys, crocodiles and iguanas, among many others.

Discover the lush vegetation that abounds in the midst of the Rainforest. Tortuguero is a navigable network of lakes and canals that cross the National Park from Southeast to Northwest accessible only by boat or air - there are no roads to get there.

During your stay, enjoy a pool surrounded by exotic gardens and relax in the ranchos with hammocks. Comfortable rooms with ceiling fans provide tranquil garden views. Stroll through the nature trails or take a leisurely walk on the pristine beach in front of your lodge.
