 Tortuguero Tours

However, in case you are staying previously in Puerto Viejo, it would be necessary to take a transport (we can recommend the company) and thus arrive directly to the dock of La Pavona, where our guide and boat would be waiting for you for the boat transfer to the Tortuguero National Park and the hotel.

Puerto Viejo is located about 3 hours from the La Pavona dock, and from there the boat leaves to the hotel in Tortuguero.

Normally, we recommend always booking Tortuguero first and then travel to Puerto Viejo, as there is a shuttle connection that makes that route at a very convenient price.

Near Puerto Viejo there is another turtle watching site called Gandoca, where with some organization, you can see leatherback turtles, the largest species of sea turtle in the world.

This happens between the months of March to May, however, the chance of seeing them is not as great as in Tortuguero.
