At first, when I realized it wasn’t the season to see sea turtles in Tortuguero National Park during my visit with Better Places Travel I was really disappointed that I hadn’t looked up the nesting and hatching season in advance. My worries that I wouldn’t be seeing any incredible wildlife at all swiftly dissolved as we boated through the channels of the park en route to Laguna Lodge. Before we’d even officially arrived I’d seen sloths and a Great Green Macaw-proving that it’s absolutely worthwhile to visit Tortuguero National Park during the offseason. Here are 20 postcard-worthy pictures of wildlife at Tortuguero National Park.
