Tortugureo Day 2

This is a lovely lodge, right on the river. The trees are filled with birds and little lizards are everywhere. This morning we were up at dawn to take a small boat trip in to Tortoguero National Park. Some good photo ops and our guide was excellent. This area was a logging centre and turtle producer before the regime and ideas changed. There has not been any logging here for a long time and the turtles are completely protected – interestingly enough the channels that the logging companies built to float logs out are still navigable and we explored some today. Spider and howler monkeys were in the trees, groups of Toucans visited, and the occasional iguana and cayman was spotted. Will let the photos tell the story.
