San Jose to Tortuguero to Arnenal

We will be in Costa Rica at the end of March and are hoping to find a tour from San Jose on March 29 to stay overnight in Tortuguero and then head to Arenal on the 30th. Any suggestions?

Yes. Several. Suggestion #1:Google the net. Suggestion #2: do not go to Tortuguero just to sleep there. Not worth the hassle and the costs. Stay at least 2 nights. Suggestion #3: almost all of the lodges in that area has a transfer included in the price of the stay. Useful?

Thank you. We have spent a lot of time on the net and appreciate your response and your other comments on other threads asking similar questions. We are trying to change our travel plans in order to stay the extra night in Tortuguero. We are hoping to book at Casa Marabella, so they may be able to assist with transfer information. We will request information from them once we hear back. Thank you.

Thank you for suggestions. Booked two nights in Tortuguero at Casa Marbella and have made transfer arrangements with Jungle Tom safaris from San Jose and then to Arenal. We're sure looking forward to our time in Costa Rica.
