Tortuguero is a spectacular coastal park of thicketed jungles, banana plantations and winding canals, stretching into the Caribbean sea. But for all its beauty and biodiversity, it's most famous as a breeding ground for the green sea turtle. This turtle trek takes you along the winding canals, with plenty of time for hikes in lush surrounding jungles. You'll also get to visit a conservation centre and learn how the local community is protecting this precious reptile. But the trip's true showstopper is when you head to the beach with a local ranger, to see the turtles in their natural habitat. It's strictly hands off, but it's also the kind of spine-tingling, life changing travel experience you'll remember forever.
