Tortuguero, Costa Rica, which can be translated as Land of Turtles, is a village on the Northern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica in the Limón Province. It gave its name to the neighboring Tortuguero National Park.

The beaches around Tortuguero are key nesting sites for many of the world's most endangered species of sea turtle. Accordingly, there are two biological stations, the Cano Palma Biological Research Station and the John H. Phipps Biological Field Station, which operate from the area immediately around the village, and which concentrate on research and conservation of the local ecology, particularly the turtles.

The small village, which can be reached only by boat or airplane, is sustained in large part by eco-tourism.
Summer of 2007, month of July. As he had done at any other time I enrolled in a group travel, this time for Costa Rica. A heavenly destination and full of nature as they come. It occupies only 1% of the land surface and home to 5% of the natural diversity of the planet, which makes the country in the world with more natural diversity as a percentage contributed.

The first destination of my trip to Costa Rica was Tortuguero, an area which can only be reached by boat through the channels. Famous for going where giant tortoises to lay the eggs. It is an area completely filled with forest and nature with an immense diversity of animals, higuanas, toucans, crocodiles, sloths, and an endless list of them. The village of Tortuguero is a small village of indigenous people that is located between the Caribbean Sea a small river that runs parallel to the sea. You can find some heavenly beaches, where there are hardly any people, but with a fairly dangerous sea, where swimming is not recommended.

At the same seaside is the jungle that is inhabited by all animals of which I have spoken and whom I show you some photos.

Some are so comfortable even walk at your leisure by the resorts as you can see how the higuana is swimming in the pool in the hotel where we stayed.
