Trip Planner : Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Limon / Tortuguero
Costa Rica's Amazon
One of Costa Rica's least accessible destinations, Tortuguero sits within an eponymous national park and remains accessible only by plane or boat. Most visitors take a trip to Tortuguero for the chance to spot sea turtles, which lay eggs on the area's beaches. Turtle-watching tours remain the most popular thing to do in Tortuguero during the egg-laying season (July and August), when hordes of tourists pack into the little village and endow it with a cosmopolitan air rarely found in places so far removed from a big urban center. The village is an ideal year-round spot for adventurers looking to take exciting jungle hikes and canoe tours of the area's many waterways. With the Klarna Trips international travel planner, Tortuguero, and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Tortuguero
Eco-lodges are all the rage in Tortuguero, with a handful of luxurious but environmentally friendly options offering waterfront views as well as complete immersion in the surrounding jungle. You'll pay a high price for these high-end eco-lodges, but will be rewarded with luxury in memorable natural surroundings. For something much more budget-friendly, look south of the national park, where you can stay at a cozy bed and breakfast or pitch your tent at a campground.
