Day 3: Tortuguero National Park
This morning, view the park’s variety of animals, plants and birds during a boat trip through the Tortuguero Canals. An unscripted evening allows you to write your own adventure — and if you visit July through October, that could include a sighting of the nesting of the green turtle! (b, l, d)
