Rise and shine - we've got a decidedly more leisurely start to the day this morning, with breakfast at the hotel and then a walking tour of our lodge's gorgeous private trails. Returning in time for another included lunch, it's time to tour the canals with endless Insta ops. Our local guide is a walking wildlife encyclopaedia, so we'll stick close as they show us around.
Then we'll head to the Sea Turtle Conservancy to learn about the great work being done to preserve the breeding areas for the turtles, whilst educating the local community so that this national treasure has a protected future. Dinner awaits once again.
We'll need to fill up as tonight we have our guided walk along the Tortuguero beach with a local Ranger to witness the turtles in their natural habitat. It's strictly hands off and only the lucky few are able to participate in this evening experience so be sure to appreciate every single second. This is one of those life-changing, spine-tingling travel experiences that you'll remember forever. Oh, and remember, no flash photography! Tortuguero is most famous for being the breeding ground of the green sea turtle, and that's what we're here for!
