Top 5 Spots in Costa Rica for Ecotourism
The town of Tortuguero is also host to a national park. The sunny Caribbean coastal zone is populated with small villages, and a very relaxed vibe. The culture here is unique to the rest of Costa Rica, with a strong African-Caribbean influence which is especially present in the delicious food.
The National Park is one of the most diverse in Costa Rica and maybe the world! With rainforests, marshes, beaches, and canals, the only settings missing are the unpleasant ones. It is populated by many species of crocodile, sea turtles, monkeys, birds, and fish. Going on a guided tour to spot animals is one of the most popular activities.
The National Park is an important breeding ground for the Green Sea Turtle, and watching the nesting at night, from a safe and respectful distance, is a highlight of many eco-adventurers’ experience.
Kayaking and exploring the canal is another popular pastime, as creatures like caimans and crocodiles are especially common. For adventures on dry land, trails for wildlife watching and bird watching are well-marked and accessible.
