How to get to Tortuguero?
The Tortuguero National Park is located in the canton of Pococí, in the province of Limón. It is not accessible by land, since it is a network of channels but there is a wide availability of navigation services.
From Guápiles, main town of the Pococí canton, you must travel to the community of Cariari (20 km), then you need to go to Cuatro Esquinas (15 km) and then to La Pavona where there’s space is available for parking vehicles.
Cariari and La Pavona are linked by one of those rustic roads that hinder the transit of vehicles due to the potholes that form during the rainy season.
