After the personal breakfast at the lodge in Tortuguero, you will be met at the hotel to transfer you to the Tortuguero National Park, one of the most famous in Costa Rica. It is only accessible by plane (with an additional charge) or by boat, which is recommended because during the boat trip you can observe the great biological diversity of the area.
