  Lizard along the Tortuguero Nature Trail
by SanguiniA

In Tortuguero there is a small nature trail passing through the forest. Apart from seeing something different it is great since the trees offer some shade from the sun. This is a great opportunity to view small lizards, butterfies and insects - especially the leaf cutter ants. There is also an enormous buttress tree.

The trail ends on the beach, so it is ideal to walk the trail a some time before dusk, so that once you arrive on the beach you can enjoy a magnificent sunset.
