Getting to Tortuguero -- worth the trip?

Jump to last reply

My family (teens 14 and 17 and husband) are traveling to CR in late July/early August and already have decided to spend some time in Arenal and Manuel Antonio, in that order. We will be there for 10 days. We're huge nature and wildlife lovers, and I would love to squeeze in a side trip to Tortuguero to see the turtles nesting. I just can't figure out how to fit it into the trip because it seems difficult to get into and out of. If we were to do it, is it easier to go straight from San Jose when we arrive, or from Arenal of Manuel Antonio? Do we drive or fly in? And would one night be enough?

Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated. As a side note, I also looked into going to the specific coast to watch the leatherbacks nest, but we won't be in CR during the right moon phase, so Tortuguero is our only option.

Thanks in advance!
