After an early breakfast, our private car and driver will take you to the airport for your included flight to Tortuguero where a boat will take you to the Manatus Hotel. With only 12 air-conditioned rooms, our boutique hotel is the finest in the region. You can take some time this morning to relax by the pool or explore the lush garden grounds of our hotel.

Day 3 - The Waterways of Tortuguero National Park
Often referred to as “The Amazon of Costa Rica,” Tortuguero is a verdant tropical wetland filled with exotic flora and fauna waiting to be discovered. Spectacled caiman, Southern River otter, a variety of freshwater turtles, and West Indian manatee are among the marine creatures that inhabit these waterways. Along the shores, you might observe Spider, Howler and Capuchin monkeys as well as a wide variety of tropical birds. Today you’ll join other hotel guests on morning and afternoon expeditions along the pristine canals of Tortuguero National Park. Of course, our expert naturalists are onboard to deepen your understanding and appreciation of this unique eco-system and its diverse flora and fauna. (B+L+D)
