    My wife checking her emails in Tortuguero village

    In the village of Tortuguero there is a house with small handprinted signs saying internet access. It`s a small house on the main street. They charge 1000 colones for 15 minutes internet access, and there are 7 outdated but very functional computers in a room that has air conditioning. The heat in Tortuguero is almost unbearable at times, even in the rainy season, and our Lodge had mosquito netting for windows but no air conditioning. If you need a break from the heat to send an email or do some online banking while you are in the village you`ll enjoy the cool air. A lot of the locals were using the computers there as well so just ask anyone and I am sure they will point you in the right direction. Thats my useless tip for the day. Happy travels.

    Delmonte

    On your way from San Jose to the boat to Tortuguero, you will pass some banana plantations and a banana factory. This factory belongs to Delmonte. Have a short stop at the factory. It's an open factory where you will have a clear view how the bananas go from the tree into the transportation boxes.

    The Lonely Hunter in Tortuguero

    by Chris1978 Written May 9, 2005

    Take a trip to Tortuguero and go for a hike with Bill Sambola. Bill used to be a monkey and jaguar hunter in Nicaragua and has a lot of stories to tell you when you are paddeling together on the canals. Tru relaxation for your stressed mind and some workout for your arms. What else can you ask for? Nada!

    You could say Tortuguero itself is very off the beater path, as there are only two ways of reaching it - by plane or boat. No roads lead to this little place!

    The canals are not all natural - in 1974 the natural wataerway system here was connected by a series of man made canals.

    The journey from Tartuguero to Hamburgo de Siquerres, can take anything from 2 1/2 hours to all day, depending on the type of boat used. Our trip took about 5 hours, allowing for photography and a stop at a small cafe.

    It's a beautiful journey thorugh the national park as well as past acres of cleared land and small settlements.
