Tortuguero Day Trip From San Jose By Private Plane

Tortuguero is a remote national park on Costa Rica’s less-visited Caribbean coast. Home to jaguars, manatees, and nesting green turtles, it’s a jewel well worth exploring.

From San Jose, board a private plane and fly northeast over the forested slopes of Braulio Carrillo National Park. Touch down at an airstrip and set off into Tortuguero’s mysterious wetlands. Keep your eyes out for the park’s elusive animals and enjoy the serenity of calm waters.

Afterward, walk the beaches of Tortuguero village and witness the life of locals in this laid-back enclave with a passion for sea turtle conservation.
