Tortuguero is all about the sea-turtles (Tortuga is Spanish for turtle) and it's here that a huge number of leatherback turtles come back to lay their eggs in the sand along the shore.

The day of arrival went a lot smoother than it could have done. Leaving on the 6:30 am bus, we arrived in Limon only to miss our 8 am bus by minutes and have to wait 50 ...
