The famous canals in Tortuguero
This image shows the famous canals of Tortuguero Costa Rica. Tortuguero National Park in Costa Rica consists of a network of canals, jungle, rainforest and lagoons. The canals, including both the main larger canals near the ocean as well as the smaller canals in the inner section of the national park create a net of literally hundreds of miles of navigable canals and waterways, always totally surrounded by jungle. The ideal setting for a tourist actually getting really close to local fauna and flora species without the need of walking through the muddy trails.
