Tortuguero Dschungel Abenteuer

Tortuguero beach is the most important nesting site of the endangered green turtle in the Western Hemishpere. Giant leatherback, hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles also nest here. CCC was established in 1959 specifically to study and protect Caribbean green turtles. Working closely with the Costa Rican government, CCC helped establish Tortuguero National Park in 1970, a move that offered protection to the turtles and strictly limited the number of turtles that could be taken.

The green turtle population is believed to have come perilously close to extinction in the 1960s when nearly every female turtle arriving to nest in Tortuguero was taken for the export market for turtle soup.

Choose from these two options:

TORTUGUERO JUNGLE ODYSSEY
Travel one way from San Jose via air conditioned tour bus & river boat and travel one way via small plane.

TORTUGUERO JUNGLE EXPEDITION
Fly both directions from/to San Jose

The private tours go with a maximum of 8 pax and are non commissionable.  Standard nesting tour can have up to 50 pax that usually split into smaller groups when around the nests.  We offer 10% commission on the packages and the standard tours.

There are luggage restrictions of 25 lbs on the small planes, but they could have the hotel they are staying at the night before they begin their tour store their luggage until they return.  If someone doesn’t want to fly at all, they could take the bus & boat in both directions.

We have wonderful itineraries for the remainder of the trip.  If you want to give us a call to brainstorm, we would be happy to help you with the planning.
