Costa Rica Things to Do: 740 reviews and 1,188 photos


<FONT COLOR='#000080'>The best way to see a lot of birds and animals is the transfer by 86Km boat along the channels of <FONT COLOR='#FF0000'><B>Tortughero</B></FONT>. Sometimes the channel open to the sea and you can meet large groups of Pelicans and Herones. There are both Caymans and Crocodiles, also Sharks. On the banks, the luxuriant vegetation built a 25 meters hight wall (highest trees in rainforest reach 45 meters). Some canal tractc are artificial, here people lives with fishing, agricolture (rise) and hunting. <FONT COLOR='#FF0000'>Birds</FONT> I have seen there: Cormorant, Jacana, Frigatebird, Bare-throated Tiger-Heron, Vultures, Kingfisher, Pink Flamingoes. During canoa trip I meet the rare wild peacock. <FONT COLOR='#FF0000'>Mammalians</FONT> I have seen: Sloth (sp.Perezoso), Lesser Anteater (sp.Oso Mielero), little horripilant bats, Spider Monkey, Iguana, Basiliscus, Buffalo.
