It’s awesome. We saw caimans, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, turtles. Not for families with young children but teenagers would love it.

Lovely place, but considering the absolute mission it is to get here - I would only come when the turtles are about - otherwise its no different (besides the addition of some canal tours) to any of the other amazing national parks around Costa Rica!

You have to plan to get here, only accessible by plane or boat, but if you want to see wildlife. You shouldn't miss it. Take a boat trip and a night walk to the beach.

You cannot walk from Parismina to Tortuguero, but you can get there by boat. There are boat taxis available and would not be too expensive.
