It was AWESOME!!! You gotta do it. We saw TONS of wildlife. The driver (Jorge?) had eyes that could spot things that I'd never see in a million years. Worth every penny to do, the trip.

The tour lasted 30-45 min in the canal. You basically go for a ways, turn around and come back to the starting point. The boat is not that big (4 people wide) so you see well on both sides except higher points on the opposite...More

I have traveled to Tortuguero at least 20 times, no visit is ever the same. The river boat ride from La Pavona to the village of Tortuguero is never the same. I have traveled in the rain, the scorching sun, when the river is dry...More
