Photo by @jeffmauritzen. view from the small town of tortuguero, looking out over one of the many canals and waterways found throughout #tortuguero national park. located on the caribbean coast of #costarica, this incredible wilderness area is well known as a nesting ground for sea turtles. it's also home to myriad of other wildlife, including caiman, monkeys, macaws and even jaguars. as you might imagine, exploring tortuguero's jungles on foot could prove quite challenging, so most exploration is done by boat, where you'll have an excellent opportunity for numerous wildlife sightings. for more photo adventures from costa rica and beyond, please follow me @jeffmauritzen.
