We enjoyed getting close to nature and taking the tram ride. It took -1/2 hours on the ride. Difficult for someone suffering from a bad back, but very beautiful. We also saw the Butterfly Conservatory and the beautiful flowers.

One of our favorite spots in Costa Rica, we began and ended our stay with hikes in this park. Make sure to hike trails on both sides of the freeway.

We took a bus journey from San Jose to our meeting point for the boat trip to our lodge in Tortuguero, and there was so much to see all the way along on the bus.

We crossed Braulio Carrillo on a coach, directed to Tortuguero from SJO, and even seen from a bus window it was still one of my favourites!
