Wow what a journey!
We caught a shuttle bus from Fortuna which took 4 hours followed by a beautiful 1.5 hour boat ride winding along the canals to arrive at Tortuguero. On arrival you notice that you are in the middle of nowhere. There are no cars in town, you are surrounded by rainforest and the main street is a dirt road that takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end ...
