Flora & Fauna

Tortuguero is a natural haven for more than 300 bird species, and more than 2,000 different plant species. Its marshy lands, and wide open and back water canals offer incredible sightseeing opportunities. 



Tortuguero is privileged to welcome the nesting of 4 Sea Turtle species, out of the 7 world species. Hawksbill, Loggerhead, Leatherback and Green Turtles come to Tortuguero to nest, but, being that the first three are in high danger of extinction, only Green Sea Turtle nesting tours are available, in season, between July and October. And don't forget, two months after the turtles have nested we get the see the turtle hatchlings! Enjoy this wonderful moment between September and early December at the beach in front of Mawamba Lodge.


The Village 

A small community of 1300 inhabitants who live surrounded by water, whether its the Tortuguero Canals or the Caribbean Ocean.
