6/22.- Tortuguero National Park, banana plantation
You can do the canal tours by motorboat or by rowing boat. I recommend the latter one; you will be able to get closer to the animals on a boat without a noisy engine.
If you choose an experienced guide, he will give you plenty of information about the unique flora and fauna of the park. Local guides also know where to look to find the animals.
In the artificial canals, rivers, and lagoons of the park you can see many species of birds, reptiles, monkeys, plants and trees. The water tours last around two hours. The tours are done early in the morning or late in the afternoon, before sunset, when animals are most active. In the area there are many mosquitoes and insects, bringing a good mosquito protection is necessary. If you do not have mosquito repellant, you can buy it in shops in the town of Tortuguero.
