Cities of Costa Rica - Tortuguero
This is a small town that is easily accessable by boat. It is here that you see some of the beauties of Costa Rica that other developing countries do not have. You might not know that on the average developing countries only protects 8% of their land whereas Costa Rica protects over 25%. Tortuguero is one of those areas that is protected. It is called the Venice of the Rainforest and although I am talking more about the protected area of Tortuguero there is also a town called Tortuguero. This is a great little town with a laid back Caribbean vibe to it. It is a nice feel away from the Western society chaos that you might see on the Pacific side with large luxury homes, high rise condos, and real estate offices lining up to greet you at the entrance of every beach town.
