The Tortuguero Canals are an extensive system of natural waterways used for local transportation and jungle exploration. Traveling through the canals is a fascinating experience rich in wildlife that includes monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and colorful tropical birds in the trees or along the shores. Often one can encounter river turtles, caiman, and emerald-green basilisk lizards here too. For a quiet, peaceful way of viewing this wonderland of tropical nature up close, take a kayaking tour through a canal in Tortuguero!
