 North Caribbean

In the northern region, the lodges can only access the jungle by boat on the canals of Tortuguero, which feature endemic species. This coastal area is considered a prime destination for Caribbean cruise ship travelers who enjoy shore excursions such as canal boat tours, macadamia plantation tours, river rafting trips or even a classic train ride. This area also has one of the most important green turtle nesting sites and is home to 50 species of fish, countless species of birds and 160 species of mammals. You can see the turtles make their way up the beach to lay and bury their eggs in the sand (June to October).
