Tortuguero, the Costa Rican rendition of the Amazon rainforest, overwhelms the northern shore of the country. This monstrous region is a progression of waterways and trenches that confuse the wilderness.
Of course, it downpours frequently here. Although the beaches are beautiful, an entire day of sunny weather at the beach is unusual. Finally, the areas of strength are energetic barracudas and sharks that meander the waters, so you won’t be doing much swimming anyway. The greatest draw here is the enormous quantities of turtles (thus “Tortuguero,” which signifies “district of turtles” in Spanish) that come to settle along the coastline. The best opportunity to see them settle is in April and May.
In any case, in any event, during the slow time of year, Tortuguero offers a couple of spots to go climbing, bunches of trench travel, and a wealth of untamed life (this region is known for its birds).
Tortuguero isn’t difficult to get to, nor is it modest. It requires five hours to arrive from San José, and supplies are acquired by boat. Subsequently, it’s anything but a spending plan objective.
Yet, assuming it’s something remote you’re searching for in Focal America, Tortuguero’s the spot to go!

2. Puerto Viejo:
Puerto Viejo is an oceanside town with a solid Caribbean feel. It’s the locale’s principal center point. It’s not difficult to get sucked into the surfer/party life here. I truly like it regardless of the fact that it’s touristy.

Like Tortuguero, this is a spot to unwind. Home to only 8,000 individuals, there’s one bar that gets enthusiastic on certain evenings; however, generally, following a day of climbing, swimming, or surfing, a great many people simply sit and peruse.
