Independent Travel Tours





Pachira LodgePachira Lodge The lodge is strategically located only 5 minutes away from the extraordinary Tortuguero National Park, and right across the main "canal" facing the town of Tortuguero. Surrounded by a network of very scenic canals, this is considered one of the most exotic regions of the world, characterized by its rich flora and fauna.




Tortugero CanalsThe wildlife at the Tortuguero National Park is rich and varied. There are unusually large populations of monkeys, amphibians, birds and fish. Resident fauna include the tapir, ocelots, jaguars, collared peccaries, river otters, sloths, grisons (furry, weasel-like mammal native to Mexico, Central America, and South America), frogs, macaws, toucans, and the fascinating bulldog bats which feed on fish.
Irazu HotelTortuguero beach is the most important nesting site of the endangered green turtle in the Western Hemishpere. Giant leatherback, hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles also nest here.
