Visiting Tortuga Island
Visitors to the island will immediately be struck by the abundance of coconut palm trees, white sand beaches and emerald waters that are perfect sites for a relaxing vacation. Many tour operators can bring travelers to Tortuga Island from cities such as Jaco or Puntarenas.
These trips, which take about 90 minutes, offer breathtaking views and an up-close view of the marine wildlife found in Costa Rica.
Upon arriving on the island, travelers can spend the day enjoying a wide variety of recreational activities, including swimming, hiking in the hills, playing volleyball on the beach, or simply relaxing and sunbathing on the shore.
Adventure travelers are encouraged to take part in canopy tours and zip lines that will provide birds-eye views of the island and its lush forests. On the water, kayaking and taking a ride on a glass-bottom boat are other popular activities among tourists at Tortuga Island.
