Rivers around Tortuguero
This image shows two rivers joining. The brown one is the Rio Sucio River. This image was taken between Braulio Carrillo and Tortuguero National Park.
Most of the rivers coming from the slopes and mountain chains surrounding the Caribbean plains, end in the Tortuguero and Matina basin. Braulio Carrillo National Park, the Northern slopes of Irazu Volcano and the Talamanca Mountain Range all empty their water in the very plain region of Tortuguero and Matina.
